I am a deputy manager with 8 years of experience in retail banking operations CTC is 5.64L, now HSBC global services is offering 70% hike, however, the grade will be assistant manager. Should I accept the offer? Would degrading the designation from deputy manager to assistant manager be a mistake? Please suggest.

Designation is not a big matter in IT Industry. No one asks you the change in designation in interview. Your roles and responsibilities are matter, people are there with associate and handling Team leader responsibilities.

I would say your CTC is very low according to your experience.


Yes i am trying.

Currently in TCS basic is low around 20-25% of your salary.

As per the proposed new wage rules, basic should be 50% of package. So this will eventually increase Gratuity of long timer TCS.

In a case, if my Gratuity stands at 1 Lakh say, with new wage rules it will be 2.5 Lakhs.. Is my understanding correct? Will the company pay from their pocket for this?

For UK folks in JPM, I have an been headhunted for an ED lead architect role at JPM. I've asked for a desired base salary of £130k.
Just wondering if I have not shortchanged myself a bit from the start of the process (I know I could ask for more at the end but need more info that glassdoor isn't providing).
It will be nice to know average salaries for similar ED roles, bonus, pension and other perks at JPM in London.
