Hi fellow fishes, I recently interviewed at GoJek and cleared all of the rounds. I even got a call from HR that you have been selected for the senior software engineer role. He then asked me my expected salary. Which i gave a ballpark figure of 28 Laks PA. Since then it has been 3 days and I haven't heard back. Should i call him back and quote a lower price? Need your advice here. P.S - i am from India and have around 4 years of experience. My current salary is around 15 lakhs pa.

Call them but don't lower your asking just yet. Understand where is the process heading right now (typically hiring approvals with salary take a week or two). Let the HR bring up the salary expectations. Understand from them, what is their budget and why is 28L not feasible. Then decide what's the lowest you can go. If you offer a lower asking before hand, you will be lowballed for sure. Do give us an update when you hear back.

Keep us posted.

In the future, always ask them what their budget is first before giving them your salary requirement.

Currently a manager, reporting to VP. There’s a need to fill an open director position, who I would report to instead of directly to VP. I don’t meet the years of experience in the posting, but I have been doing the requirements of that posting in my D2D. I do plan on going to B-school PT starting next year. On one hand I can see how working under a director can be beneficial, where I can learn from their experience and have more time to focus more on my growth while in school. Shoot my shot?
