Hi Sharks,

I already have offer from EPAM systems, IBM, and CTS.

CTS is offering me 14 LPA fixed and EPAM is ready to pay 16 LPA fixed. Now In my salary discussion call with pwc india they are matching my offer from CTS i. e 14 lpa. They are saying they are from big 4 and have brand image. I ask for at least 15.5 lpa and told her if they can not afford that they can drop my candidature.

I’ve been in the federal consulting space for the past 6 years, with 9+ YOE overall. I’m so burned out from federal consulting.

I’m thinking a jump to commercial consulting could offer a much needed break in both compensation and challenging, meaningful work, but don’t know what firms or roles to target.
