Friends,

Myself Abhijeet. I need help.. Its VERY URGENT. I will be very very grateful to anybody who replies to my question.

I have around 9 years exp (pre and post MBA combined, pre-4, post-5) in FINANCE and ACCOUNTING. I am currently working in Genpact as Assistant Manager in F&A; domain. I got a call from UBS (Now cognizant) in INVESTMENT BANKING domain (PRODUCT CONTROL) . Now, I dont have any INVESTMENT BANKING exp. I got the call since I have 9 yrs Reconciliations exp in F&A; domain. They wanted a guy who has good exp in Reconciliations. UBS/ COGNIZANT said that they will give me PRODUCT KNOWLEDGE if I get selected. Now , my CTC is 5 lacs ( fixed). Guys I want a suggestion from you. Since I have 9 yrs exp and an MBA ( ICFAI Business School) and CFA ( Level -1) from ICFAI and my CTC is very low. How much should I ask as salary????? Kindly advice. Please GUYS HELP ME..ITS A REQUEST TO EVERYBODY IN THIS FORUM . I will be highly indebted to him/her who advises me.

Almost a similar opinion or exactly the same was expressed by my cousin and his friend who are at Stern and Tuck schools. Both of them did their internship with a Prominent European Investment Bank in tokyo and both of them regret their decision to choose this job over an analyst profile offered by Bain Consulting.

So please be well informed before making any decisions regarding jobs and career.

bye.
