Accenture! Global company with better global brand than the GFT company. Role seems to have more scope (platform) vs (solutions). Also that 10% annual bonus (if it’s all guaranteed) will be huge if you manage to negotiate a large increase after a year.

It depends on what your goals are. Do you want to grow and expand your career more? Or do you want to take a more step by step movement within your focus area, with comp trickling upwards as well. It seems to me like those are the options. (in reverse order)

Agree with E1. To gain more experience in managerial skills at your level, go with Accenture

Accenture.

Do you mind sharing your education/experience? These offers are both great considering London’s average salaries, and I’m trying to get on your level!

Started out as a software engineer in Accenture, left for one of the big4s for a devops role within cloud transformation and then later moved to Rackspace.

Hi fishes, Need one advice. My brother is Economics graduate. During lockdown due to covid, since both of us were at home, I taught him Salesforce, just for fun. Now he has grown to have an interest in the technology and wants to pursue a career on Salesforce. But all job posting I see, always ask for BTech, MTech and such degrees to apply for openings. Any company out there willing to take a Economics graduate based on knowledge only? Any other courses in INDIA, that may facilitate this?

Had my Green Card (AOS) interview today for a marriage based application. We did not receive an immediate decision after the interview. One item cited by the officer was the expiration of I-693 medical records (it’s been over 2 years since we filed). Coincidently, as per new USCIS guidelines, they’ve extended the validity of I-693 to 4 years due to covid. I didn’t know this or else I would’ve called it out. I’m hoping this doesn’t generate an RFE. Anyone here with a similar experience? Any RFEs?
