Hi folks, I am a java lead with 9 years of experience skilled in Spring boot, microservices along with cloud exposure. I am not certified in any cloud platform though. Currently my ctc is 18.70. Targetting a big 4 with ctc of 30 lpa. Please do share your thoughts if my skill set is really worth it to ask for around 30 lpa. Is pwc, deloitte, kpmg going to entertain such expectations.?

I received an offer from Big 4 for an SC3 role. The offer states that I will be eligible for a salary adjustment in Oct 2022. What does this mean?

I have enough YOE for a manager, but the team recommends that I come in as SC3 to learn how things are done since I have no prior consulting experience.
