These are nothing but fairness cream advertisements for the MBA colleges





I am in niche consulting with 2.5 year of workex with fixed base of 30 lpa and bonus of 7.5 lacs so numbers are getting little higher!
Also half of my firm left to join MBB so if you put min 30% hike you can imagine MBB no.s .

Note: All concerns with front end management consulting/strategy roles


A few queries W.r.t. the migration to MBB-
1. Were all of them tier 1 b-school grads?
2. Do MBB have lateral hires?
3. What is niche consulting bracket mean?

These have huge joining bonuses, gratuity and what not.

example sauce?

I was part of one of these placecoms and produced some of these reports. I can tell you that if you want actual numbers, start dividing these by 1.5 and whatver you get will be likely close to reality.

Either you are super stud or super dumb.. 30 lpa from campus is a very good salary and way over average at any MBA campus in India. If you think thats not enough, then you must be a rockstar and didnt get through some top companies or you dont even understand how market works even after doing the MBA.

Folks at GSW/Heartbeat/Klick, what’s the best/worst thing about working there?

Current comp is $140k in Texas, which is just salary and bonus. Have offer for $200k in California, which includes base, bonus and RSUs for large tech company. With taxes and COL, am I right in basically taking a hit in the short term, with the hope that stocks rise and that I’m gaining in the long term? Obviously risk with that assumption, but curious how others approach these decisions in change in comp structure.

My employer just initiated my green card process(document collection). How long before I could switch my job without my application being affected? Also, incase I switch in the next 5-6 months, would i have to go through the entire process again?

Need an opinion- Better to switch for a job that pays almost 1.5 times the pay in the next few months and ask them to file my green card app or to stick around with my current job till the time my app doesn't get approved?
