This.

The HM if they’ll talk to you. It’s via recruiters most of the time

Awesome thank you! Just don’t want any awkwardness that’s all 😊

Big/medium tech companies and more established startups will have processes in place so that it is the recruiter who always negotiates, never the HM. The HM will tell you to talk to the recruiterZ

Less established startups seem sometimes to not have these guardrails in place and it’s sometimes the HM or even both negotiating.

Does anyone have thoughts in getting their PMP? I run projects all the time for my current company but because of the nature of my role, they tend to last 2/3/4/5 days, with 2 & 3 weeks max.

In my next role, I’ll be running our client work more directly (vs being a liaison) with longer term projects and I know there’s quite a few hours involved in getting my PMP. What are some of the best tips/tricks y’all have used getting yours?

Hi Everyone,

Recently, I appeared for EPAM systems for AWS Cloud & DevOps. I have an experience of 11yrs 9months. They have selected me for lead (L4) band ( i know i am eligible for L5 band as well, but I won't mind).

My current CTC is 27.3lpa. I have shared expectations of around 50% hike.

What is the maximum CTC they offer for around 12yrs?

Had another mentor/boss tell me that he finds the practice of law not fulfilling. I'm an M&A attorney and don't find it fulfilling either. Have given up on that idea but always depressing hearing more senior lawyers admit to this. I wish I had a crystal ball and could know whether any other career would be fulfilling.
