I did it!

3 yoe, all at the same company. Started there after undergrad.

Not sure if it’s common but I could totally see it. The more senior roles in PM usually do strategy as work as well so if you wanted be more of an operator it a makes sense. The idea of strategy and executing it is something even BCG is doing more of, so an easy sell.

Hello, I have received offer letter from EY LLP for Manager position.
There is a bonus component over and above the CTC mentioned in offer letter.

When asked, HR conveyed the below, verbally.
'Bonus is between 10-20% depending on performance. Usually 15% on an average.'

1) This bonus range (10-20%) is not mentioned in the offer letter. Is this usually the case?

2) Are people in EY receiving the bonus right from the first year on the job or is there some extra t&c I was not made aware?

I had switched from one company to another few months back knowing that Ill be working on different domain and tech stack and took it as challenge for myself.
But now I am not able to work in this domain and want to quit.

Before resignation what n how I can tell my manager that I want to resign?

Option 1 : Tell the truth about not liking the domain n techstack? Which can backfire as I accepted it before I joined.

Option 2 : Tell lie about getting a better opportunity in-terms of salary?
