I’m looking for advice from a professional that’s familiar with the sale of startup. I’ve been working on my baby (Plankstation) since 2014.

My friend got 65% hike in the same company few days back. He joined that company(startup) as fresher. Now it has been an year. And he also got 1.5L bonus. I too joined as a fresher at PwC AC Bangalore. I am currently Associate 1, Can I expect atleast 20% hike in few weeks and a bonus of 1L? Any chances of being promotes to Associate 2?

I think many companies really gave very good hikes(got to know from my friends) due to Market Correction and demand etc. Now I feel like switching PwC
