Hi all,

What is the formula for Grauity calculations, on HRWeb it states

Basic Pay x 15/26 x (number of years with

However, according to other Indian sites it is

If you were a junior creative with some experiences in big network agencies, what would you choose between these two :

A - Big network agency, working only on one account but doing potentially award winning work. Very ambitious and talented team.

B - New unknown agency with a small network backup but several accounts, competing for new clients and the will to win awards too. Two creative teams for now but lots of ambition and possibly more growth and potential to evolve as a junior creative.
