Transitioned from consulting to buy-side but they will for sure grill you on technical and ask you to do either on the spot model in an hour or take home assessment. Moreso than if you were already in IB because you don't have the same skills coming from consulting

Hi Everyone,

Need some inputs before making an important decision.
I have offer from Cognizant and they are promising that next quarter they will initiate my Canada visa. They are giving assurance when I spoke to them over call. Also, my current employer Accenture is also saying the same to retain me. Can I believe Cognizant? Also, Canada onsite is best in which company - Accenture or Cognizant. Please suggest based on your experience.

Thanks in advance!
