I have 6 YOE in. Net+Angular and got an offer from Legato Health Technologies with 20 LPA Fixed, i joined Infor just 11 months ago with 12LPA Fixed and i will get the hike in August. If i resign now i will not get hike and i am a critical resource in the project, i guess Infor might try to retain me by matching offer. What should i do? Should i resign ASAP and not negotiate with Infor . I have all these doubts because Infor is a product based company.

I got an informal offer stating the salary range before they officially extend a written offer. I accepted over email and the recruiter said this:

What the heck do I say while being polite??? Of course I would rather it be higher than the lowest part of the range!!
