I know this feeling all too well. I lived States away until I made manager and had the flexibility to move and maintain my current position. You need that right balance of family and work life and there’s no right or wrong when it comes to the right blend for you

OP - I know how you’re feeling. My husband and I moved across the country away from all family. You have to make it known to people that you are having a difficult time adjusting and establishing yourself because you are struggling with balancing work (if you are truly working extensive overttime). The right people realize that they invested in you and they don’t want you to leave so they help you out

Hey EPAMMERS , a good news to all EPAM Anywhere new joiners who are yet to join.

The only constraint with EPAM Anywhere is the bench pay policy. We don't get fixed salary while on bench.

New joiners have an option to opt for fixed pay or flexible pay. Do reach out to HR and get your salary structure revised.

NOTE: While revising from flexible to fixed pay your actual CTC will be reduced. In my case Flexible pay was X and now fixed pay is X-1.8LPA.
