6-7 lpa


Completely depends on the company you're going... prod based will offer a lot and won't see your previous salary as per my experience... for service based/big 4 you can expect around 60-70%... You can also have multiple offers and try to negotiate with them based on that.


It's a service based company and a startup they are offering 80-90% raise on my current CTC.

I've been working full time for one year and my CTC is 9.5 LPA in a product company. My next role I'm targeting 15+


Which company? If you can reveal

I hate Mother’s Day. My mom was abusive, manipulative, and an all around terrible person growing up. Not much has changed.

I dread having to talk to her on Mother’s Day because she will turn it into a terrible thing and ruin my day. But then I see my friends who have lost their mothers and feel guilty. They’d give anything for another conversation with their mothers.
