Isn't cognizant lower than t2/t3? (Assuming t2 is atk/ow and t3 is big4) Unless you like the specific work they do, 12% doesn't seem like that high of a bump to make the move.

Yeah needs to be 25% and up! I would say even higher because Cognizant is not tier 2/3.

It’s funny how people broadly categorize the big 4 into T3 without knowing the type of work each group does. Many of the the projects in strategy and ops have MBB and big 4 bidding for the same work. These are 10-12 week projects with teams directly working with senior leadership to provide guidance and direction. If cognizant is a step up for you and meets your 2 yr goals / growth, then go for it. Money is just one component of it. I know cognizant is trying to beef up knowledge in certain areas and if you can get on good projects, it’s a win.
