I have 5+ YOE in QA area and my current CTC is 6 LPA. I got an offer of 15 LPA. Is it wise to accept this offer? I mean jumping directly from 6 LPA to 15 LPA.

Depends on the company from where you are offered. But based on the current market. I think you should go for it. Keep giving more interviews.


Actually it would be unwise to accept any offer below that, given you have 5 YOE


The other companies may or may not offer you the same. But i personally find its a good offer. You can take this and try your luck with other companies to score more good offers.


Why would you not? That's not even too much for your years of experience. Just take the offer without thinking.


What is unwise in that?

Means whether another company will offer me such an high package with just 5 YOE?

Just go for it... Don't underestimate your worth

For context
It’s a role that I’d be a good fit for, but it’s at a company that gets a lot of applicants so I’m looking for opportunities to get a leg up.

I have two mutuals with this person, but I barely know them so can’t really ask for an intro.

I'm estimating 3 years to see middle school students buy in, and 5-6 years before my high school program sees any fruit of that labor. Stay? Move on?
