What do you expect the recruiter to do?

“Whoops looks like you were right it isn’t the high part of the band but rather the low part of the band. My bad.

Looking forward to having you onboard! See you in 2 weeks!"

Depends on what your questions are. They better not be about additional comp

Right, I understand. Not about additional comp directly but more like was told was being offered high end of the band but have gotten information since then that makes me think otherwise, so more a question of comparison if that makes sense

They lie. It's their job.

Depends, are you asking stuff like when the bonus is paid and what the likely bonus is?

Or is it more like I want more money? Former yes, latter no.

I have an offer with IBM - 18 lpa fixed and cognizant - 23lpa (22.3 lpa fixed). I asked IBM to revise the offer to match the counter, but they rejected it. I atleast asked them for 21lpa even that too rejected. The difference between in-hand salary of both comes to around 30k. Now IBM team is calling me continuously and asking if I am going to join or not. Please suggest.
