Hi All, My sister has cleared all the rounds in Accenture. HR contacted her today to negotiate the salary. My sister asked for 8LPA FP. HR said the max fixed pay they could offer is 7.5LPA. My sister told she would think and get back in few minutes. Within 5 minutes, HR moved the candidature status to “on hold” due to budget constraints. None of the HRs are answering the calls. What can i expect? TIA I am feeling worse as i advised my sister to tell HR that she would get back. :(

Hi there. Earlier this year I laid out a business case for why I should get a raise & I asked for a $20-25k annual raise. I got $15k. I found out another person also asked for a raise around the same time. He didn’t give a business case, he just asked;he got the full amount he asked for ($70k). He is more senior than me, has been there longer, & we are not in the same function. However, something is just not sitting right with me about this situation. Any thoughts? Am I just over-analyzing?

got an offer from a tier 2 firm that’s already a $10k pay cut to my current total comp and will be up to a $25k pay cut based on a pending promotion I’m in process for. Countering to at least match my current comp, but it sounds like a long shot. always been interested in HC consulting, got my grad degree in it, and see this as my last chance to give it a try before I price out. 9 YOE industry but no formal consulting experience is it worth it??
