Got put in to lead client project for ingestion through reporting.
So far:
- PO just got promoted from SME and has never done a data project
- Inexperienced AO who has been with client for 1mo
- DA is new person who wanted to "try out" role
- Experienced devs got swapped out 2 wks in for inexperienced independent contractors
- There is no BA
- I'm a data analyst with only passing familiarity with Big Data
- Client asked for a waterfall project plan but insists it has to be agile

Pray for me.

I'm 6 months old at D! Planning early promotion next year.. counselor and pm both are backing me.. I need to go to India for at least 4 weeks in Dec ... most probably would be rolling off from current project by then .. would this vacation hurt my promotion chances coz of utilization etc?

What's your favorite type of project? If you were to get staffed on a type repeatedly what would it be?

Growth strategy? DDs? Performance Improvement? Bench?

Hello, I have a question that needs your inputs how to handle. I am working with a post-MBA Associate on a project and this person seems to do extra work beyond what the team is asking the rest of us to do. I think during our conversations with the leadership, there were a couple of points that were brought up by the MD but that was not a concrete directive that we need to do because if it is, I would know about it from the chain email since I am staffed to the project.

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
