I gave a series of interview and submitted all documents on Accenture portal. Hr negotiated salary and confirmed on call.

Now after all the efforts a different HR calls me back and reduced a major portion of CTC and said we can't offer more than this.

Is this a negotiation gimmick?

I told them right on the first day itself that if you can't give me my expected CTC let's not waste each other's time.

Will they call back?
It doesn't hurt me much as I have one more offer in pipeline.Pls help

Its likely not a gimmick. Either they realized they don't need someone that urgently or you were a borderline case. Either way, its not going up.

This is very common, you settle something with one hr make you feel almost there. Then some other hr will start renegotiation to lower than that has been discussed. HR trick to manipulate your mind

Why are you bothered if you have another offer. If they really feel that you are the right candidate they will come back to you.

What's your experience and what did HR offer n which level ?

I m seeing such posts almost everyday where the salary offers get reduced or candidate is getting rejected at last moment. If this is indeed the reality, then why is everyone saying that job market is at all time high and companies are offering almost double salary etc?

It's mostly related to Accenture.

Buddy, you think of yourself . You already have a offer and tried for Accenture. You were ready to ditch the first one if you hd got the expected ctc from Accenture. So you were also wasting so many ppls time. So don't take this personal. It's the way

Personally, I don’t feel he is wasting anyone time here. It’s about opportunity. If you settle for something, you will never get what you want in life. We have to always thrive for best in our life.

Oh same happned with me i asked for 12l and they agreed and aftr clearing all rounds they decreased my fix n said we will pay in variable and it was just 10.28 they where paying fixed +variable
Wasted a month forst delaying interview
Then took 4 rounds of interview 2 technical and 2 hr al last said we cannot afford
