Just got a offer letter from Macquarie, gurugram of 28lpa and HR said that it was bit tough to get approval for 28lpa (though verbal approval came within 3 days ), so now I believe that I should asked for 30 lpa itself. Should I talk to HR again ? And will they agree to me, I havemt accepted the offer yet. Yoe- 8 and tech - automation testing using Selenium , role offered - assistant manager

Data fam, are there companies that offer an actual onboarding, training, and ramp up for jr. data analyst or do they all just throw you into the fire where you feel incompetent?
