Hi Fishes,

I was hired in
Accenture India for certain tech role and team (during interview rounds). Now that my onboarding is done, I see different tech in my profile. Can they change the tech (or team) after onboarding?
If so, Please suggest what can be done to get the required tech again!?

P.S. I did send a mail to Onboarding team for clarification, but no response yet.

Towards the end of some of my phone interview questions they will ask what my minimum salary requirement is. The problem with Digital Product Management is there are companies that will pay 90-100k and others that will pay 150-160k. That is a big difference and I think I have priced myself either too high or too low for a couple of them and ended up not going further.

What is the best way to counter that question? Would asking for their range be a better approach?
