VC is getting smoked right now and shows no signs of slowing. They won’t be hiring and you don’t want to work for one in the next few years.

It's really tough, knowing people and networking your way in is realistic the true way. In this market, you could look for funds that are sector specific for growing / staple sectors like clean energy or climate tech.

Hi Fishes,
An IIT/IIM grad here. Workex: 3 YOE as SDE, 2 years as a PM post MBA.
I've never switched companies in my career before until recently I started applying and got an offer with a Fintech firm for 37LPA (30 fixed+5 variable+2 JB+ESOPs).
Current CTC: 25.5 at a traditional firm (previous years')).
Should I negotiate more, or keep applying to more firms? Many of my peers are earning way way more than me. My notice period is 1 month and the new firm is already putting pressure to resign.
