Hi! I left ZS after 2.5 years as a 6 months AC to join EY as a SCon. I want to join ZS back as soon as I complete a year here. I’ve heard that people join ZS back but do they have to go through the same interview process or it’s different for them? Also, what kind of compensation and role can I expect once I join back considering I get a 16.5LPA+ Bonus here. Do you recommend going back to ZS or should I stay with EY India?
