Consulting

Got an offer from Infosys with a significant pay increase and opportunity to grow my skills more. 2 years at IBM but haven’t got the experience I expected. Any thoughts about Infosys?

Isn't as good as it used to be. Founders were excellent but all left now. Major leadership churn recently and culture has gone for a toss

Sounds like your current situation is not ideal... and input about Infosys is not ideal. The CIC situation is no good. For 65% increase in salary, it might not be too bad. Go for it. Leverage that salary for another move in the near future!

Agree with EY1. I never felt the growth opportunities were there. There are some Partners that have a good book of business. But few and far between. I’m ex infy

If you are getting a good compensation then go for it. They give decent amount of personal days too. Health insurance is not bad either but there is no match for 401k. Btw what position are you going for and what are they offering you?

Not known in the US, so it depends on your end game. If the goal is to move to India then take it.

If I was with Core/GBS part of IBM i definitely would stay. No one from my office has willingly stayed. Basically everyone i’ve onboarded with or met there has left

Because I haven’t gained any real config experience, etc at IBM on my projects. Mostly just testing roles and support roles. My position at Infosys would be an Ariba Associate consultant. Plus i’m working out of 1 of 4 CIC’s at IBM and the pay is well below industry averages.

What is it? How long? They’re notorious for putting people on Managed Services / PMO work with indefinite duration and not letting you roll off.

Not sure it’s worth it then. Why do you think your exit opps will be better after infy?

Who exactly is the offer from? infosys consulting or infosys limited? I don’t know if anyone from IC that did any coding. Not saying they didn’t have people that did, but most of that work was done offshore
