I have been offered 42lpa (base + bonus) at a startup. I haven't received offers from Amazon/Microsoft/Uber yet, hence trying to gauge if this is equivalent to big MNC's.

YOE : 4
TC. 30 Lakh rupees per annum
Level : SDE 2

      4 years of experience.
      WLB in new seems to be good from what i gathered. I was aiming for bigger company, but they won me over with better work and travel .

      Fair enough. Give it a go. A solid base will take you much further than a stocks heavy tc. Wlb is an added bonus.

      Congratulations.

      From what i have heard , it's difficult to get into good work in Big cos in India. So if i get equivalent pay giving up on some perks and maybe bit of wlb. I think it's good to give a startup a try. What do you say?

      Yep. I have been in big and the small :)
      Both tend to have a very niche set of perks. Startup’s learning easily paces you at 1.5* times up the ladder when compared to big companies.
