Recently, as you probably know, Dr. Seuss's estate chose to stop printing a few of his older books that had offensive racial stereotypes. There was huge backlash from white people, including teachers here, screaming "cancel culture!"
Now we have a white guy who murdered eight Asians in custody, unharmed; while the police officer who killed an African American man for allegedly trying to pass a bad check is about to go on trial.
Full disclosure: I'm white. But I'm still enraged by all this. You?

I am sharing one recent incident in TCS.. my friend had joined 3 months back as java lead. the resources in that projects are just 0-1 year of experience and even they don't know how to dubug. When he asked those to put more effort, they escalated to higher management. Surprisingly. leadership is supporting those junior guys.. Is it work culture in TCS? They don't support/encourage to learn people?

What is it like working at Monitor Deloitte with the Strategic Growth Transformation team (under S&A)? I have 4 YOE from a Big 4 and got an offer for Senior C in NY.
1- What is the culture like: How are the people? Hours? Are you happy working there?
2- Is there actual strategy work or is it mostly transformation, with the word "strategy" being slapped to every single project? How long are the projects? Are most project sponsors actually at the Csuite level?
3- Is Monitor thriving or dying?

Kinda seems like the place to be - less competition for deals, more time evaluating deals than doing 4 months of diligence as one of 20 funds bidding, better culture (hit or miss, but vibe from places I interviewed was a little more laid back but still very smart VS UMM/MF vibe where I feel like I need to display my Lannister banner to get eye contact)

Hello Guys,

I have 8 years of experience with more than 4 years in the current organization. Current package is 9.5 LPA. I have offers with Accenture (14L fixed and 4L variable) and CTS (15.5L fixed and 70k variable) both having more than 75% hike.
In my current organization, I see a scope for onsite assignment (not 100% confirmed though). I am confused of which one to choose - Wheather to stay back or switch to which company.

Any suggestion is appreciated. Thanks
