Hi Everyone,

Hope you all doing well!

This is my first post as well as my first switch after working 6y in the same organisation.

Recently I have cleared two interviews one from
Infosys with 11.8 LPA (10.2 fix, 1.6 variable) - offer letter received
2) Cognizant with 15 LPA (14.3 fix, 0.7 variable) - documents submitted, yet to receive offer letter.

YOE: 6y
LWD: June 6

Considering the opportunities I have which one would be the better choice in work culture wise.

With six years experience Infosys might have given you Consultant designation.

You can ask for atleast 16 to 17 LPA based on that.

Try for more offer. You have enough time.

What is your tech stack?


Thanks for your prompt response!

Infosys has given me Technology Lead position.

My tech stack:
Hadoop, Hive, Spark, SQL, UNIX, Scala & Python(Basics)

Infosys and cognizant have nearly the same work culture. People move within these companies a lot, so you won't see much difference.
Go for the one who pays you the most.

For most people 2nd company is like a casual fling. You stay there for couple of years and move on to a better opportunity.
So don't think about work and other stuff, get the best deal and designation and join


Noted!!! Thank you once again!

Congrats!! Both infy and CTS are kind of same . Since CTS is paying you high you can go for that. Check other factors as well like location , travel time etc . Try for other opportunities if not go with CTS work for 2 years then plan for another switch . Since you have been stable in ur company for long time which would be a added advantage for longer run.


Yes, I will try for more preparing for interviews. Office wise CTS is near compared to infy so I can save some time.

Thanks for your input 😊

Other struggling to find work? I graduated law school in 2018 and have had such a tough time. I started out at a boutique firm, but was laid off in Oct 2019 due to a restructuring decision. After months of searching, I finally landed another position at a boutique firm only to get laid off again one month later due to the pandemic. I look for work daily and have had a handful of interviews, but nothing has stuck. It’s difficult to handle the rejection and I just don’t know what to do anymore...

I understand that this is a privileged concept but I don’t want to hit 60 and feel this way because I feel like if I continue on the path I am on, my only impact will be helping rich people get richer. Is there a way to treat this as an experimental
