Should I consider taking a pay cut to join @athenahealth? I have an offer from @NortonLifeLock that requires relocation from Bangalore to Chennai. However, relocating is not possible. Therefore, I am considering travelling to Chennai on a weekly basis. I am also interviewing with athenahealth for a position in Bangalore. I have almost made it, but their budget is nowhere close to Norton. The HR said he will try his best but still the difference would be huge.

NortonLifeLock Inc Relocation issue - I applied casually but now I almost made it to the final round but there is no way I will be relocating due to family concerns. Today I have a Hiring manager round but if I disclose it I don’t think I will get an offer. Should I just accept the offer and then disclose after sometime during joining date hoping that they will agree for remote option or should I just mention it in hiring manager round today?

Work life balance Friendly environment
Poor tech stack Managers are not technically equipped. Mostly will find core people managers. So nothing to get inspired from. Poor personal growth both position wise as well as technically1

In some teams the work life balance is not good. However if you get into good team this is the best place.
With lot of acquisitions and mergers in recent times, the instability is very evident. There is always a fear of lay off ( that is a norm for most of the IT Companies). Only problem here being in last 5 years atleast 3-4 major acquisitions have happened resulting in not so bright future.1

- Good amount of work as most products get revamped regularly. - Opportunities to grow if you can speak up and add value to the company. - Wide range of products and domains(Mobile/Desktop/Web/Backend). - Excellent salary/compensation that’s very competitive in the market. - RSUs while joining and during appraisal for great performers. Also offers Employee Stock Purchase Plan to all employees at 15% discount. - Occasional WFH has been an option even before the pandemic. - Really good Leave policy. Additionally, the company also provides mandatory year-end time-off to all during the last week of the year. August 16th is a holiday too, on account of NortonLifeLock day. - Global employee count has been reduced to 2500 from 11000.
- Year end hikes are pretty low in the recent times due to cost cutting. But they try to compensate it with bonus and RSUs or during market correction cycle. - Some good perks have gone missing due to the same reason. - Good talents are retained but with reduction in the employee count the benefits have not improved but have become less instead. Hope this would change in the near future.1

- Good work life balance - decent package (not in recent times) - Technology ramp up periodically.
- No visionary leaders, focus is more on cost optimization alone. - Chennai management total waste, they don't have any strategy. They just wanted to fulfill their egos by petty politicking. - USA management treats Chennai more as a offshore consulting company. They just give work, get it done, and don't help/focus on career opportunities. They have a mentality to treat Chennai employees more of contractors, and believe those contractors (actual employees) merit raise, promotion is outside of their purview or handle by a different company. - Management lacks in their experience of setting up independent teams. They keep everything dependent deliberately and claim its a very complex system.3
