Dnt talk about Salary here.. 80% will fake it to 200, 250 etc. there are websites glassdoor etc that give quite realistic numbers

Not true. The salaries mentioned are very realistic . However if you are at an entry level role, 100 to 130k can be accurate. A lot of the salaries ppl.mention come with joining bonus, bonus plus equity

Where are you located? I was getting corporate strategy gigs 110-130K in NYC around 2 YOE

Chicago. Not as expensive as NYC, but still not cheap!

What level do you want to go in? I think your want is realistic and achievable if you’re leaving big four as a manager or above. Being in tech sector helps.

2019 --> 40% hike, CTC becomes 4.48 LPA
2020 --> 50% hike, CTC becomes 6.72 LPA
2021 --> 50% hike, CTC is now 10 LPA
2022 --> This guy resigns. Company wonders, why? He says he has an offer of 18 LPA.

Company decides to retain him by matching the offer. Two days later, the guy says, he has finally decided to move on coz he got another offer of 24 LPA.

The manager is in shock as he himself does not have that much salary.
