Hello Fishes,

What do you think is a good place to work in IT among:

1) Typical Product Based like Maang, ServiceNow, Intuit
2) Typical Service Based like Tcs, Wipro, Cognizant, Infosys, HCL
3) Remote Jobs
4) Others in which Firms like Citibank, Deutsche Bank, JPMC, Wells Fargo, Novartis

Obviously not just on the basis of salary?

Following this topic.. HCL not good in salary hike.. But you can get WLB if you do your job right


My thoughts

In the first phase , try to get a job first
Then learn everything you can upskill a bit

Next try for maang or even tier-2 big brands
2-3 switches krlo

Your package would be good and if luck helps then even the minds you work with would be amazing too, and that opens a lot of doors for side income too nowadays.

Next phase after 30-35 you should try for remote jobs or TCS, Infosys managerial roles , or even some mid level companies with great employ centricity are amazing, my preference is being close to family so if I have a non rented home already I'll try for a job in that city if even if I get 10-15 lakhs less in my ctc


Depends on what you want. Wlb, money or skill development.

I had a company offer me a position under the original range and after I’ve turned down the role multiple times they have come back with an offer with a better title and $30k more.

Hi all, would love to get your opinion on an estimated market rate for a employee like me, as I’m thinking about asking for a raise in January but haven’t done this before.

TS/SCI Full-Scope Clearance
1/2 thru Masters program (Analytics Georgia Tech)
Been lead data scientist on team for 5+ months
2 AWS and Tableau cert (sorry had to throw that in there lol)

I know this is a tough task without all the context but I’m currently making $95k and that seems to be the lowest on my team.


I was wondering if anyone would be able to help me figure out if I’m getting a decent offer for a job? It’s for a content strategist role at a small agency in Chicago. I don’t have experience in the specific job role but I do have certifications + skills that would be relevant for the position. The offer is 50k salary w/ benefits but I’m not sure if I should attempt a salary negotiation as I’ve never done one before. I would have to move into the city and it just doesn’t sound feasible.
