Hi Everyone, I'm switching company for the 1st time so what should be my expected CTC !

Profile - Virtualization (VMware, HyperV) & Windows server.
Current CTC - 3.5 LPA
YOE - 4.3

That's what HCL does, exploit engineers and then the CEO parks his Rolls Royce in front of building 5 noida to flaunt. Worst company to work for, you get 10 rupees hike after distinguished performance, I call it gawaron ki company and they are ok with it, they give 0 hikes, minimum wage and no retention. You tell them you would resign, they will send you the link to portal where to resign 😁 Company is survived by below average engineers who can't secure job in a better company or people who have temporarily joined for a year to increase package.
You are underpaid is an understatement, you are exploited is the right term. Go for company like Accenture where for this profile you would get bare minimum 12-18 lpa (depends on how your fair in the interview and are able to sell your skills) and once you are in you get bonus in the range of 90-150k twice a year + 10-30% hike every year.

Recruiters are getting shocked when i mention E-ctc as 10 that too from the big brands 😆

Some of my juniors have recently switched. They had 2.5 to 4 YOE.

different tech stacks but mostly with very less hands on because they were in support projects. They have all been able to bag 16lpa plus.

Their salaries before switching ranged between 3.5 to 8 LPA

Obviously you will have to work your way upto that package. It won't happen in one go.

Also you need to be confident while quoting your expectations because if you sound unsure, they will definitely pick on that.

HRs in recruitment are vultures. No offence to anyone (sply. some really nice HRs I came across while looking for jobs). But they are! 🙈

Thanks

Well you can't get a direct offer from 3.5 to 10 until you get any generous recruiter.

Otherwise, take small steps like, take the first offer of 5-6 which you can easily get. Then second (on top of it) 7-9 and then third which can take you to 10-12.. keep hunting till you have the last date. Moreover, you don't know when they will turn down their offer. So play safe.

I have seen this decline trend in several chats in Fishbowl itself. So be careful and all the best.

See here is the formula for your first switch - 70 to 110% hike. This itself is a market standard, provided you are coming from good company.

I recently learned from 3 different employees that left (voluntarily) they were making 98-105k. They were outside candidates and were all hired within the last year and for the same position, and same regional territory. I have worked for the company 3+ years and went from a core position, to large loss. I was given a 10k raise putting me around 78k. Yes.... some of these individuals have Lardge Losss experience but does that really make a 20-25k difference? Any advise!?
