Hi fishes, I have been trying to switch my job from oracle from the past 9 months and no luck till now . I always wanted to work in a product company being someone who started their career in Wipro. But now I am left with less or no choice but to attend interviews for companies like hcl, capegemini. Is it going to be fine going back to service companies ? I am afraid I might never be able to get into a product company again.!

What's the best form of compensation to ask for and why?

My employers' CEO just announced that they just received $7 million from investors. He wants to use that money to offer incentives to employees that hussle and drive more revenue for the company.
