Promotion and 40K more at Cognizant. This is obvious right?

Please go. More people leaving is the only way I’m ever going to get a raise 😐

40K before taxes? Nah You’ll grow more slowly there, probably

Go for a year and if you miss Deloitte go back with your new salary as a negotiating tool to get back up to market.

Counter at Deloitte and stay there. Being a manager at Deloitte has way better exits than cognizant

Unless you make 500K and 40K isn’t all that significant then yes. Take the 40K. What’s the role ? I should look into them

I see people saying counter but I don’t necessarily agree cos you can counter on the salary, sure but not the title. And I don’t think Deloitte will be $160k for an SC. So it’s good money, take it and leave Deloitte without burning bridges. Come back 2 years later with a bump.

Cognizant is trying to get into higher margin consulting on top of their staff aug, but based on what I've heard from people that made the move the mindset just isn't there. And they have trouble selling on something other than price. Which is why I said go, but be prepared to bounce elsewhere in 12-18 months. Definitely don't burn any bridges.

Also when you become an M at cognizant, you will either be competing with our SMs for sales or competing for work that we wouldn’t touch...

You could get $150k at SC from D if you push.

I had a cursed cognizant recruiter tell me same. Only to have the recruiter in charge burst that bubble. There are some unscrupulous cold callers out there. Check facts

I came for my MBA to the US in 2010. Had zero worries about my future because MBA was sure shot to my American dream of settling in the USA. Didnt even check the weather, was just glad that the school ranked in top 30. Just saw the average salary and thought I can get that too, and almost did. Everyone was so welcoming and friendly. Wasn't scared to drive anywhere in the country, even had drinks in local bars in tomahawk,wi. Don't even recognise this country anymore. Online mba, f that!!!
