The guy next to me at the gate, loudly talking on an internal sales funnel call, just described his sales focused role as "hand to hand combat". My eyes are now stuck looking upwards from rolling.

Everybody was kung-fo-fight-eeeeeng! Those sales closed fast as lightning. Contracts were a little bit frightening, but commission came just in timing....

I have been getting emails and LinkedIn messages from amazon and Google recuriters almost monthly about SDE jobs in Cloud.

I was a cloud infra engineer before at an old firm but it wasn't a coding heavy role, and I am not a CS major Whenever I reply back that while I am very interested in the company I don't believe I have the right skills for an engineering/coding heavy role, I get ghosted by them

I have been offered a position in-house at a $500M-$1B company, mid-sized city LCOL, 10 YOE in private practice. They offered me $120k, w opp for undefined discretionary bonus. No paid parental leave or 401(k) match & only 1 week PTO in first year (but claim they have discretion for more). Is there any way to salvage this? Salary guides suggest TC should be around $200-215k. I want to get my foot in the door but this seems crazy low.

I got offer negotiated from Cognizant but then I asked HR about my base location. She told it's Pune, but I applied for Noida.

Will they cancel the offer? Anyone experienced the same?
