Dear fishes,

How to get more offers while on notice period? I have 1.5 months left and hardly had one other interview and HR ghosted there as well. I am looking for counter offers to increase my package.

Is there any hiring freeze or slow down due to holiday season?

Any tips and tricks to get more interview calls are appreciated.

Thanks,

Hello Fishes,
I have received an offer from EY GDS with,
1: Fixed: 26 LPA
2: Variable: 10%
3: Grade: Principal Consultant (Grade 42, band 3)
4: Profile: Banking and finance BA
5: EOY is 10.5 years
Currently I serve as a Lead BA in one of the Fintech product company with a fixed CTC of 20.5 LPA and my current organization has agreed to give me a CTC of 26 LPA if I stay back. But only thing which I would be losing out here in my current organization is the 10% variable component and the EY brand

Just a bit perturbed at my boss. We talked about action items last Tuesday. Today, he was on me about not getting certain items to him. Forget the fact that last week, I was working on other items on that same list.

Some of this I brought on myself, but I was working to remedy that, only to be pulled in other directions to work on other items. Let me focus on what I'm doing and it will be done in short order.

Just really irritated right now.

I just got an offer from Microsoft (SAP software engineering role) for $135k base, $75k/4yr RSU. Target bonuses bring TC up to ~$195k max, not including the $10k signing bonus. I’m currently an SC with 3 yoe making ~120k base + ~$10k bonus last year.
