More than a couple of ad people in Asia have died from it or circumstances related to exhaustion/overworking. Please take care and remember it's only work.


Yes. I may reach that point today


The good idea would a break before that. Sometimes a day or two isn’t enough but helps a bit. Stay safe, ans takes care. Whatever th reason is, it doesn’t worth it.





If you can die from it, you can certainly be hospitalized for it.


Yes. I suggest going to the ER or a psychiatrist for an evaluation. Being aware of it and taking care of your health is HUGE. There’s nothing wrong with making it a priority and will help you lead a happier life.

Yup. Has happened to me a few times after burning the candle at both ends.

How do you best support your students who do not speak English? I have four ELL’s in my 6th grade ELA class and they don’t receive push-in or pull-out Bilingual support during my class. Do you pull them for small group to provide instruction separately or do you just try to use google translate to translate your lessons and the work? Any best practices? I’d love some help.

I have joined Nagarro almost a year now as a senior architect. However, I see lot of issues here. The company is great so far as employee friendliness is concerned. It may be rated as the top most company in that regard and that is why attrition is well within control. However, there are issues:

1. Project Allocation - allocated to projects without fitment with the role or skills. No internal job portal

2. Lots of seniors in bench for long time

3. No way to give company feedback

Been on a long freelance contract at an agency. Took a much lower hourly rate with the promise of converting to FT staff after 3 months. Due to Covid that timing got pushed (understandably) but I recently learned the FT role is not available until 2022 earliest. Got a new freelance offer after 1 day of reaching out at my regular day rate. What to do?

My dream agency interviewed me. Asked who my seniors were and poached one of them.

I am a little rattled by this experience. Did they only interview me to see who the seniors are and what everyone did? Is this okay for agencies to do?

I've only ever had 3-4 interviews so far...and I am not quite sure how to feel about this. Or if this is common. Or if I am overthinking.
