Hi developers, need some learning/ field selection advice...
My current skills are .net, html and SQL

A few people who have made a switch from my project at really high packages worked as .net front end developers - react, angular, js.

Is it true that if i want to get good packages like 40-50 lpa, I should have frontend knowledge?
I am willing to learn but I am just confused what is the correct path I should choose.

Hi everyone.

I have worked in 3 startups(product based) and most of them due to the company's financial issue , had to do lot of switches. Right now I m working in a MSME company and soon I will complete 1 year there. Should I think of switching again? Or this will create a negativr impact on me. Because I believe that if we get better opportunity we should not leave that , be it in terms of the technology , environment or salary. Please share your views here. Thank you.


Hi All,
My sister has cleared all the rounds in Accenture. HR contacted her today to negotiate the salary. My sister asked for 8LPA FP. HR said the max fixed pay they could offer is 7.5LPA. My sister told she would think and get back in few minutes.

Within 5 minutes, HR moved the candidature status to “on hold” due to budget constraints. None of the HRs are answering the calls. What can i expect?


I am feeling worse as i advised my sister to tell HR that she would get back. :(


I have 5.5 YOE in total. Right now I work is windows server L1 with 5LPA.

I want to get my self specialised into one technology. I'm thinking of Azure or AWS certifications to begin with. But is that enough? Do I need to pick up programming languages as well?

I really don't know how to switch career as it looks like staying in Windows Server Support won't do much.

I feel really left behind-the-scenes. So all advises will be much appreciated. Thanks!


❓I heard BNY is more flexible in terms of hybrid model. i.e 12-15 day WFO in QTR ( i.e 1 day WFO in week). Any other bank is giving such flexibility?
