Is there a big difference between MM and B4 WLB? I liked the people at the MM firm better, but don't if B4 means that much I could see myself staying.

Should be a little better

Should be inherently less preferable if you want to go F100 There’s a reason B4 pays 15-20% below what they should. Employees pay the “our name on your resume” premium. Similar with MM - you get paid extra now but will have to compete for same jobs as ppl with more prestigious names on their resumes; that’s a cost to factor into your decision.

Slight difference but not a ton imo

I think typically a little better at MM but that hasn’t been my experience lately with how insane deal flow is

Hi Fishes, I am basically stuck while taking a decision. Two weeks back, I have joined the big 4. Now I have an offer from capgemini offering me around 4 L more that my current ctc. Should I consider moving to capgemini considering WLB. Will big 4 release me as I am still being onboarded. Also If they ask me to serve notice, will capgemini wait for me during notice period at big 4. Please help guys.
