Hey ZSers,

I have been selected into ZS for the BTAC role under CCM(Customer-Centric Marketing). My YOE is 3.8 in Cognizant, and the domain is ETL, DW, cloud(AWS).

My question is, ZS is giving a great package compared to what I have in Cognizant (Above 100% hike), and Cognizant is ready to retain me by giving somewhere 50%-60% hike. Will ZS be a good choice for me to switch? In terms of growth, technologies, work, pay. Or should I accept what cognizant is giving and get retained?

• Growth wise ZS is way above Cognizant
In ZS you will have 35 CTC in next 5-6 years and if you grow well and things go well at more senior level ( you can touch 1 Cr CTC in next 12-15 years)

• Technology wise ZS is not that cool. Not sure what BTACs use bdw majorly ( as I am a BOAC)

• Work wise - Its majorly pharma client at ZS, which is one thing in case you like variety and different types of exposure

• Work hours /WLB will take a hit at ZS. Expect ~9.5 - 10 working hours on an average and ~11 at the start to quickly ramp up

• Pay for work is there at ZS and the journey is rewarding if you stay for a slightly longer period

Hey, Thanks for the valuable response. It will surely help in making my final decision.😊

Career growth and progression is good but again it's a subjective question. ZS pays reasonably good in comparison to peers.
WLB can be a concern but that depends on your current working hrs in Cognizant

Upon further discussion through my interviews with the team, I am learning that this is a brand new role and change management itself is a brand new lane for this organization.
