I'm a fresher and I have just landed a job in Banglore (Currently WFH).

After some time my organization will ask me to start WFO.

The compensation that I'm currently getting is 3LPA.

Will it be much difficult to survive there while working from office?

First of all : No, it won’t be difficult. But it is going to be challenging. 😊

Second, you need to find out what kind of life you want to live. For example, when I got my first job my salary was 2.4 LPA and I tried a lot to control myself from spending on iPhones, pubs, Friday parties etc. That took care of my savings and I used those savings to upskill myself like : took up a new course, learnt a demanding skill. And along with that, I ensured that my value in my current company is appreciated because yearly hikes are important too. Just focus on savings and upskilling and within a year or so, you will feel comfortable.

Don't worry bro. I also moved to Pune with 2.5LPA. Then there few hurdles like finding reasonable pg, refrain myself frm spending.
Don't worry 1st 1-2 month I agree not much saving. But if u follow the process after a certain time u will see the results. I also also suggest use weekend to learn new skills. It really helps.

Thanks

Difficulty is relative.
When I started with 4lpa in Mumbai I had to share a sad 1bhk with 3 other guys for 28k.
Can you go drinking beer at a pub every weekend? No.
But you can have a decent and happy life. 😊

Find a good pg where food is decent and not far from office(preferably walkable)... That way probably for 7 to 8k your accommodation, daily commute and food is sorted
All the best 👍

I'm getting 2.5 now and got selected in DUSI for 6.05. 1 YoE.. I'm also learning PowerBI to try in IT sector. Just gotta keep yourself busy and not lose hope by comparing yourself with others who are earning a lot.

Definitely doable man. Don’t worry. I moved to Bangalore at a similar package, albeit a couple years back.
As mentioned earlier by others - try to find a decent PG near office. That sorts out the travel, housing and food in a single package.
Be thrifty and resourceful (jugadu) in your initial years. Gamify savings and investments as much as possible. Spend on some fulfilling experiences when you can - for ex - I used to go to various shared trekking experiences near Bangalore in the weekends (1-2k at max). Great entertainment + great for your body + you get to socialise and network.
Enjoy the little joys of life - filter coffee + masala dosa/gobi manchurian on a rainy chilly evening after work.
You’ll be sorted in no time.

Current EM at McK, the VP of pricing role I’m interviewing for wants to give me an offer. Recruiter said they picked me over an Associate Partner at McK and two Principals at BCG.

First convo, I had mentioned a target total comp (base + bonus + equity) of 400-420k. Now being asked if my salary expectations are the same.

What is a fair ask and strategy to navigate this? If APs and Principals were in the running, then don’t wanna undersell myself on comp

3. Work life balance depends on Project and managers you work with
4. Inside opportunities if you're the creamy layer
5. PF amount in offer letter is the total deduction and not just company's contri
