Hi Fishes,

First post, joined FishBowl today. I see people posting about having good YOE and getting 10-20 lpa ctc and it confuses me. I did not study from some IIT but my friends got offers from Cisco with 25 lpa ctc, 14.5 base(this year). How is this so?

So before joing Fishbowl, you thought that everyone with same experience gets the same salary?


I expected it to be around the same bracket... 🤔

Bruh u gotta be dumb to expect that people r paid equally. He is an IITian afterall he will be paid much higher. People don't call it the best institution for nothing!


The people that I'm talking about are not IITians, they are my friends from my college.

Welcome to fishbowl,

We are sure you will see your CTC skyrocket soon too. Just keep aggregating knowledge about your industry here and you will soon reach and even beat those people with 25 LPA easily.

What is your tech stack?

I am from telecom side too C/C++ development. Learning ML and trying to pivot and enter companies working on C++ with ML like qualcomm and nvidia.


Thanks, I don't have a specific tech stack, I will be graduating in 2023. I am currently an intern
