1 company .. was earning 25k
2nd .. was earning 47 k
3rd .. currently earning 100 k
4th .. will be joining soon with ~ 180k

total YOE: 6 years precisely
Coming from TEIR 3 college, in the beginning my profile was getting shortlisted only for big service based MNCs and no product based company shortlisted me.
Since we all paid hefty Fees for our graduation [Btech], we and obviously our family expects good earnings.
I think the main reason for switch is CTC and given that there NO one role one pay system in IT/Corporates , this leads to less satisfaction in job.
PS during my second switch my YOE was 3.5 and my CTC was well beyond freshers who joined from some NIT/IIT whom I was mentoring and giving KT. :)

First company Tech Mahindra nov 2016- mar 2019
(spent one year in fresher training and bench) sal when left - 3.55lpa
Second Manhattan associates mar 2019- Oct 2021
(there were great in appraisal and benefits till I joined, it all became terrible during covid) joined with 7.5lpa , left with 9lpa .

Àfter 3 years , switched for startup. Good pay and was tired of night shift.
Again after 1 year , switched to big Switzerland based bank . Good pay and start up had lot of problems. both in leadership and financially.
After 5 years , switched to Accenture. Reason , bank had very monotonous work and growth wise it was very slow.
Current status - good pay and work life balance that I was looking for , along with good project , excellent manager and huge respect among clients . Looking for very long stay here.

@Accenture1 : what's your designation here, tool stack and fixed salary?

First switch @5 years 3 months, coz I wanted to change technology stack - 45 k
2 nd switch coz I was layed off due to COVID - 89k
3rd switch luckily in 7 seven days I got a new job - 1.02 l
4 th switch coz of WLB and pay, - 2.15 l
YOE - 7.8

I believe job cannot be trusted as s permanent source. People who freelance along with the job and / or have an independent venture, earn much better amounts. Gradually the salary from job should be your secondary income. If you struggle in the best sectors you get 18LPA or rather 22-24LPA. The medium sized vegetable outlet near our place earns a revenue of 50LPA with 60% margins. The highest skills required here is Sales.

First switch 5 years ( 5 lacs to 20 lacs )

I have an overall YoE of 3 year 10 months now. I am associated with my current company since last 18 months. I searched a new opportunity and dropped my papers. Below are the reasons for my second switch:
1. To many reporting manager changes which affected my YEA rating due to lack of constant visibility into my work
2. Generalised rating even after going beyond the basic scope or level of my work
3. Extended times for both promotion cycles(24 months in a project) and login hours (10 hours)
