Has anyone had success renegotiating pay while remaining in the same position? The last two years have significantly changed my local market and the less-than-inflation federal pay raises are not cutting it. I'd be seeking 3 steps within my current grade, but I don't know if my management even has a mechanism to make the change if they wanted to. I am aware of the Quality Step Increase, but I don't think that's the solution here.

Hello Fishes,

Can anyone please help me with a referral in Societe Generale


Hi Fishes,

Asking for a friend - Need your suggestion !!

He has 8+ years of experience as an Automation tester.

CCTC: 15.25 fixed (JPMC) + 10% Bonus (Not a part of CTC)

Got an offer from @IBM ISL

Role : Senior Software Engineer

Offered CTC : 22.5 fixed +2.5 JB

Is it a fair amount for 8.5 YOE? Should he negotiate further. As this is his first offer , should he keep trying for better salary?

Hi Fishes,
I cleared LTI all rounds and in HR discussion we came on mutual agreement for 16lpa .I have 7 years of experience and they gave me Specialist - Data Engineering(P3) role. And we agreed I will join with after 60 as I had to serve 60 days notice period. I was waiting for offer letter and when I received the offer letter I was shocked to see that CTC mentioned was 14LPA and joining date was only 15days from now ,which is way early.
Continuing the POST (++)

If interviewing with a number of different agencies and/or divisions within an agency, how do you handle multiple offers? Are you given time to think it over or is it akin to a clerkship where you are expected to accept on the spot? Acceptable to let the agency or division know you've made it to final rounds in another agency/division? I'm familiar with this in private sector but worry that letting agency/division 1 know I'm interviewing elsewhere would somehow look bad or less committed.

How much will it hurt me to email and explain that I will be unavailable from 9/5 to 9/16 but I am extremely interested and don’t want to miss hearing from them if I have a chance for the position?
