    Go to Amazon for an exponential career growth. Go to MS if you prefer WLB. Don't go to Flipkart

    DM me if you are interested in Nutanix. There is much higher growth/challenging tech, benefits than the above 4 companies and many folks have moved from those companies to Nutanix.

      What position and TC is Nutanix likely to offer in Bangalore for someone moving from bay area with 7 yoe, and 335K TC ?

      Mostly Senior MTS/Staff engineer position. I'm not sure about the TC numbers, but I can say that Nutanix is one of the top paying companies. I guess TC would be easily 75+ or more for you.

      Is 75+ norm for Nutanix Staff Engineer or only for people moving from bay. How are people, work and culture in office. Couldn't find much online information

      No, I don't think it'd be specific to Bay area folks. I think they look at candidate's performance rather than where they came from. People, Culture, work is very good. There are bright employees who have joined from various big companies like Linkedin, MS, Google, Apple, Amazon etc. and new college grads from CMU, MIT, UC Berkeley etc. Culture is one of the big highlights I felt : very open, transparent, honest culture. The technology, products Nutanix builds requires to be state-of-the-art. The work for most people is quite challenging and interesting. Nutanix's attrition rate is extremely low.

      Getting into office 365 team. How does work culture and pace looks like. Only bad thing I have heard about MS is slow pace work.

    It would come down to Amazon vs Microsoft.
    Decide depending on the team and the organization. Find out about the team from someone who is working there.
    Also as you have competing offers better to negotiate. 60 seems to be somewhat less, I would expect 65 - 70.

    Note - I don't have any first hand knowledge about the salary range for sde3, it's just a rough guess.

  • Walmart.com s2a7
    OP, can you please share more details about your offer ? Don't want to discourage you, but 60L at 8 yoe seems a low ball offer. For comparison, Walmart Labs had 60L TC at 6 yoe at staff level.

      Thanks for reply. Staff in Walmart seemed senior position to me. Is it normal for a 6 yoe to be hired at staff? How does career ladder looks like after staff? How much would you recommend Walmart India.
      Feb 7
    • Walmart.com s2a7
      WalmartLabs has huge variance in yoe for the same position. I think you would fit right in at staff. Would highly recommend Labs, but you need to interview with the right team. With a 60L offer already, you can easily negotiate a 70 - 75L offer

      Which ones are the right team ? :-)
      Feb 7
    • Walmart.com s2a7
      Display ads, CBB, personalization, search systems - these are the old @Labs teams. The first three are especially good, still has some of the old @Labs leadership. If you crack the interviews, 75L is a definite possibility

      Sde3 at Amazon maps to sde4 at Flipkart. There are people with 4yoe as sde3. Think again
      Fyi: Flipkart pays way too much base salary. That’s why you’re probably under leveled
