I worked there for 2 years right out of undergrad. Culture does not exist, WLB was actually ok, and they were willing to beat KPMG’s offer by 16% when I was leaving.

Thanks K1. I am actually interviewing with KPMG as we speak. I was curious on cognizant since they sought me out. Never been on my list before.

They’re paying massively for Big 4 talent because they’re trying really hard to shake the image of being an offshore staff aug shop.

Hi All, I have 5+ years of work ex with a consulting firm in NY and my total TC was around 180k. But I quit my job last month due to terrible work life balance. Fortunately I received a new offer at Amazon of Program Manager in Seattle with a total comp of 120k. I am confused if I should accept it or of it is too much of a step down. Thoughts?

Got a job offer but the pay base is only 5% more than what I make. I’ll be promoted in a few months so I could be possibly making more at my current job. However, this job pays a discretionary bonus and it’s within (think AM/ER) at a MM bank which I’m hoping would get me more corporate strategy/PM jobs rather than my current path on Big4 ERP implantation. I’m trying to negotiate but if it doesn’t happen do you think I can find something better or do I do this for a year and exit? I’m 2 YOE

Anyone here has/had a poor relationship w/ their mom? I'm 25 & have always lived at home (bc of culture & bc my mom has been single/barely has anyone in this country so I feel bad for her). We have always argued but for the past 1.5 years it has gotten out of hand. She takes everything out on me, constantly flips, & always says I'm just like my dead dad. I don't even understand why she had kids with someone she hated instead of divorcing. Me & my brother basically grew up in arguments. CONT

I was promoted last quarter with a 25% raise but recognized I was still underpaid. I now have an in house job offer that I’m debating taking but am really excited by some new projects on my current accounts. Should I ask my manager if my agency (large PR agency, I’m in NY) can match the additional 25% even though I just got a significant bump?

For those who switched firms, how did you handle the awkwardness of the process (asking people at your current company for references [is this something I should even do?], biting your tongue when leaders try to slot you in long-term projects/initiatives, taking PTO to interview and lying about what you did, etc)? Looking to switch firms soon and trying to see what I should do.
