I joined Apisero as a Senior Software Engineer (Salesforce) back in November as they were hiring people from any technology with 2 YOE. They said they’d train and deploy on projects. It has been 9 months and trust me, I along with others who joined, haven’t got any projects till yet. The Salesforce practice doesn’t have any active/new clients. There have only been trainings and certification coupons given [contd.]
Been at ACN for <2 years in the T&O practice and being let go due to restructuring (new MD did not know me and my CC wasn’t very helpful in relaying my story).
