spongessuck5739104dIs it too late?
@spongessuck nope just rejected the company 2 hours ago. why?
spongessuck5739104dWhy not reply saying you reconsidered?
Oktokolo11233104dRealizing that one was too greedy always hurts.
@spongessuck its not a matter of what i can or cannot do. they are not able to give me the hike that i expected . i am not losing by staying in the current company too (apart from other city expenses)
(ps : the actual hike in terms of ctc fixed component was 30% , fixed+bonus was at max 60% and just the inhand was 3%)
jeeper5900103d@dotenvironment this isn’t a financial decision, you don’t want to go back to your hometown
dotenvironment691103d@jeeper you are kinda right. i feel myself to be too much socially dependent on mg parents and friends and unable to live independently ( I don't even know how to ride a 2 wheeler) , so this might be a chance to learn to live like a man.
i have a shitty home environment, but I don't really despise it
how does it feel to reject a company when :
- its in your own hometown and offering remote work (whereas your current company is in a different ,v expensive city and is asking for relocation)
- its offerring a 60% hike on your current salary (whereas your current company is asking to relocate therefore a 40-50% cut in savings)
- is a major mnc with blasting profits and known for never making layoffs (whereas your current company is not even a unicorn)
i just wanted a 70% hije instead of 60 coz i have heard of work stagnation, government job like culture and poor appraisals in this org. however my current company, even though not being a unicorn has shown to offer great salaries ( to sr employees though) so kinda hopeful there too.
but yeah, feeling like a shit who missed opportunity to get bought in gold
