      Pros

      Excellent Benefits (most of which disappear in a pandemic) - free food, young community, tons of clubs and activities, Princeton nightlife can be decent Decent foundation for a career in finance or technology

      Cons

      Compensation is decent out of college but raises and bonuses are low Very difficult to get promoted unless you are on the right teams (determined during interviews). If you are not placed on the right track, career growth is extremely difficult to attain (as well as bumps in compensation) Long hours doing some monotonous, often meaningless work. Management is always changing directions and projects rarely go full circle Recognition for good work is hard to come by. Some departments have toxic management that says bad things about their employees and managers behind their backs

      Hello all, Need suggestion.. I earn around 20L (5.5 yoe). Have been in the same company from last 3.5 yrs. I am in the comfort zone. Work life is chill. But due to boom in the market, i am feeling insecure. I am not able to decide whether should I switch or not. If I want to grow then I need to switch but here I am feeling very comfortable Work life balance is great and the work we do is having great impact. I am not getting the motivation to switch. Even if I do, 30% will be taken by gov.
