Urgent: Wanted to understand key differences between EY India and EY GDS. I know generic differences but which is better along the lines of: 1. Financial growth opportunities (hikes/bonus) 2. Duration to stay in the same role (example would I have to stick to same client for multiple years or when can I switch client) 3. Senior Management 4. WLB 5. Is it easier to move from India to GDS or vice versa? Getting Tech Consultant Senior 1 in GDS vs Data Science Senior in EY India. 5YOE/Data Science
