Has anyone as a junior associate ever brought up salary discrepancies with their firm?

Someone pointed this out to us and came with a counter offer. No one was particularly thrilled as that person was not someone we would have kept by all means possible but we took it as an opportunity to look at the system and make it more equal and get rid of the black box system for juniors.


Yes, but as I was leaving. When I resigned, I noted that the new employee with less experience was making more than me (I saw his offer letter with his salary and signature on it so it was confirmed). My old boss became defensive and denied it. Three months later, the new guy left. It was a toxic firm.

Been with Deloitte for about a year as a consultant and currently interviewing for a Business Integrity role at Meta. From what I understand, the business integrity role is an internal consulting role for them. I’d like to not have billable hours anymore and more of a WLB but not sure if there any key differences between the two besides that. There is a pay increase but not really concerned about that. Any thoughts on this transition if I am offered?

Hi fishes,

Currently working in ZS Associates as DAA and got job offer from 159 solutions (acquired firm by IQVIA) for higher position of Consultant (equivalent pos as AC in ZS)
At ZS, CCTC: 10Fixed + 3
At IQVIA, CTC: 14.5fixed + 4 bonuses + 1 reallocation

Is it a good offer to take or should I keep my job hunt on?

Moreover, I got hired by 159 solutions, but since this firm is acquired by IQVIA itself. Should I say I'm going to IQVIA (big firm) or 159 (small firm)?

3/3 Thread (General):


My father took a home loan, and the same home is kept as mortgage.
I'm paying arround 22k emi for the same but unable to exempt tax as the loan is on my father's name.

I googled a lot how to transfer it but neither gift deed nor sale deed would work as the property is on mortgage that's under bank's ownership (until loan is fulfilled).
Tax is also getting deducted, I'm paying hefty emis.
What can I do?
Please advise 🙂

Still many time i got calls and they ask with all these tech, do you have experience in cloud or devops tools 🙄
Now i am confused on how many technologies an individual should have hands on experience. I am having 3 yrs of experience only.
