Hi fishes, I recently got an offer from Epam anywhere (Lead Software Engineer A4) - 30LPA and Uplers - 32LPA (offer being rolled out) So far i really like EPAM anywhere as an employer but overall CTC is not satisfactory.. I am aware of their 50k bench policy but i think i can ask for a fixed CTC as per the new salary structure (correct me if i am wrong here) Do you guys think i can counter EPAM anywhere with the higher offer. What's the salary range for Lead Software Engineer A4?@ TIA

Question: I joined EY around a month back. On bench still and nobody apart from HR has contacted me. I have found another offer in the meanwhile. They are prepared to give me a 50% hike on EY's package. Should I take it or wait? My friends say, frequent job hopping will affect my resume. Tbh, I spent 6years at my last organization and EY is my first switch. I'm unhappy so far and don't think its a right fit for me. Any advice? Should I wait or go? Or negotiate with HR in EY against this offer?

HCL Technologies HR and I agreed to 14LPA salary for 3YOE (DE role) and she told me she needs to get approval and will then roll off the offer in 2-3 days. (But in the managerial round, manager was okay with it and forwarded my application to the HR round). She did not request for any documents. Is it possible that she decided not to go forward because of the compensation? I don’t want to sit hoping for the offer..

Need advice: 3.5 years experience in consulting - not been on the bench once and always received very good client feedback. Now its time for me to get promoted to Manager this summer, however all my peers (around 10) try as well. Most of these have been mostly on the bench or helping out on internal projects, so they got Partner visibility. I however, always away on projects, making money for the firm, don't get visibility. Ive been told, chances are low for my promotion. I feel betrayed.

For folks who have been here for a long time, is this a common occurrence or is it especially bad this time around?
