100-150, 10 yrs

150-200. 7 years.

Too many

100-150. 14 years

100-150 8 years

The clutter folder, however, has improved the quality of emails that come to the regular inbox, and I feel like less fall through the cracks

100-150, 16 yrs.

I only read about 10 per day, from clients or those that have a great subject line. Unless I am writing long responses, less than 20 min spent on email.

Do these 100 - 200 emails require a response? Are they from clients? I probably get 15 maybe 20 that require a response.

Hello mates,

I'm a Linux admin with total experience of 6.5 years. My current CTC is 7.8 lakhs.

I hear others posting as 20 LPA , 35 LPA !!

When I was around 3 Years experience I was getting 3.7 LPA, During that time I got selected in a company and during HR round I asked for 5.5 LPA. But the HR said I'm expecting almost 80% by looking at the figure. Which by then the HR agreed to give. Now I'm getting 7.8 LPA with almost going to complete 7 years.

What am I missing ?
