Mind sharing your tech exp? Thinking to make a move to tech soon...

Director at S& here. I know you're asking for MBB but we're hiring specifically for growth strategy and CDD roles, which imo are the best strategy projects anyway. DM if interested and we can discuss

Would love to discuss- DMing you now.

Could also switch to other tech company ?

Hi Fishes, I am basically stuck while taking a decision. Two weeks back, I have joined the big 4. Now I have an offer from capgemini offering me around 4 L more that my current ctc. Should I consider moving to capgemini considering WLB. Will big 4 release me as I am still being onboarded. Also If they ask me to serve notice, will capgemini wait for me during notice period at big 4. Please help guys.
