Been here about 2.5 years. WLB isn’t bad, about average for the industry. Definitely commercial is better. I’ve been public sector almost the entire time, only had one experience with a commercial engagement and it was so much more relaxed and didn’t have to deal with gov’t folks with ego problems. Also don’t have to worry about clearances if you go commercial

In my experience it is very difficult to switch from PS to C. I tried to move to C a while ago and got a lot of resistance or just apathy from HR and the PPMDs. Average workweek I’d say is 42-45 hrs for me personally, though I am not in audit, I’m ERM consulting

Hi Sharks,

Please guide.
I got selected in HCL.
They asked me to share the documents , but they didn't share the offer letter, it's been 1 week already.
Do they take time in releasing offer letters generally , or am I rejected already ?

Also, they mentioned 5% engagement bonus , and 8% annual bonus, do they give full amount , or some part of it.

How much an average candidate can expect from these bonus ?
