It seems like both of these things can't be true at the same time.

I’ve heard of a pretty gnarly work/life culture, and at the same time I’ve heard they are one of the best WLB oriented companies out there - above Google. So... maybe it’s team dependent. For what it’s worth, I haven’t really met a ‘happy’ facebooker (4/4 wouldn’t recommend working there)

Lol maybe we were top tier two years ago. We’ve certainly lowered the bar the past couple years. Want a job? You’re hired! lol

Hi Fishes, Hope you and your family are staying safe and healthy. I got an offer from EY GDS India with 11.5 LPA Fixed and 5% Variable pay. For some of my friends got 10% variable pay. I am at staff level. Senior and above only will get 10% variable pay or even at staff level they will give 10% variable pay? My Professional experience is 3 years and 2 months years in Cyber Security. EY Fishes looking for your suggestions :) Thank You! Is this a right package to agree or need to negotiate?

I am far along in the interview process for a job I want (meeting with Chief Legal Officer next week), but am still accepting other interviews until I have a formal offer. However, I have an interview scheduled for early this week where, after further research, I don’t think I would be very happy. Should I let the recruiter know that now, or just do the interview for more “practice”? Thanks!
