HR says he is not open to negotiation and the numbers are final. Hiring manager says I can only talk to HR and he has no say on the package. HR doesn't want to tell me the level i'm being hired for. Looks totally low balled and ill treated.
I have a Microsoft offer coming up in a week but the amazon HR wants me to accept/decline offer in a day and give me a joining asap. Amazon interview took almost 6 months to complete and now he is rushing up like this.
What should I do? Super confused.
- Salesforce vc55That's usual trick of HR. Just be confident and say that you need more time. Also it's not worth leaving unicorn start-up in a hurry. Take your tome. All the best. Let us know your story a week later.
- TriNet AYwy24It shouldn’t be about either, simple switching economics 1.5 lac extra is about 10k more per month after tax .It’s not worth it, plus you are still early in your career, you will learn more and grow faster at the startup. IMHO you should start making money based decisions when a) circumstances in your life demand it b) you are n the other side of 40 . In all other cases make growth based decisions with your long term vision alignment3d1
- Google YTpM41Red flags EVERYWHERE. Walk if you can.
Plus it's Amazon so even if you get the job you'll 80% likely be looking for another job in a year
- New cherokeetoWhat? MSFT just offered 37 CTC to fresher UX graduates from IIT-G, are you sure you are getting the right price even after 5+ years of experience!
