Any advice or resources would be greatly appreciated!

Infosys is offering me an almost 50% rise from my current base pay with 100% remote and client-specific travel only.

I am not sure whether joining Infosys will close the door of other Big 4 or Accenture for me or it doesn't make a difference as I already have 5+ years of experience working with Deloitte with an overall experience of 12+ years.
