Hey EPAMMERS , a good news to all EPAM Anywhere new joiners who are yet to join.

The only constraint with EPAM Anywhere is the bench pay policy. We don't get fixed salary while on bench.

New joiners have an option to opt for fixed pay or flexible pay. Do reach out to HR and get your salary structure revised.

NOTE: While revising from flexible to fixed pay your actual CTC will be reduced. In my case Flexible pay was X and now fixed pay is X-1.8LPA.
