I got offer from NTT data business solutions India. They offered 12 LPA as fixed for Associate consultant position. And if I choose to leave the company , I will need to serve 30days notice period.
Is the notice period for probation period or full time emp? In offer letter nothing has been mentioned about my terms of employment but HR is saying it’s the full time employment. Can I trust them ?

This may not be impressive to some of you but I’m proud of it and am celebrating! Started in 2016, liberal arts degree no experience, 68k base. Now at 96k base, 107 last year with bonus. Just accepted offer to jump to boutique firm with 115 minimum base, 126,500 guaranteed if meet 1960 hours, and potential for extra bonuses for extracurricular work and BD. I’ve essentially doubled in 5 years and am so excited. Current firm lowballing me so hard.
