Is cognizant business consulting different wing in CTS? How is it? How is the layoff in this wing and promotion cycle?
Scary to think about the impact of our work. I’ve done projects that have led to layoffs, but this is next level...
Should we tell switch reason to recruiter/Hr as layoff if company has laid off to us? Should we tell truth or does it affect our performance?

Got dinged from BCG R1 as construction started by question 2 of chatbot. On top of the grinder screaming at my window, the guy started yelling at his ex over the phone about the custody of their daughter throughout the next 30 minutes. I’m sure some of this can be heard in my video response. Do I have any recourse or do I chalk this up as a loss and move on?

Plaintiff-side litigator here (mid-level), looking to brainstorm ideas for career changes. I’m not sure if I’m unhappy being a lawyer or just unhappy with having gone the litigation route. I enjoy the intellectual aspect of drafting complaints and motions (researching and writing) and I like helping my clients, not so much the discovery process and dealing with all the disputes with OCs. Anyone else felt this way, switched to another type of practice and enjoyed it? If so, please share.
How's everyone today?
Hi fishes, dm me with your resume, email id, contact number and job id(optional) if anyone wants referral of Deloitte India.
Does anyone negotiate the business terms of agreements? My CEO is pushing me to negotiate the commercial terms of a supply agreement. I’ve explained that business needs to do this (CFO, supply chain, procurement, etc) and that while I’ll be involved (documenting the agreement, providing advice, etc) negotiating the commercial terms themselves is not the legal department’s function. Am I wrong here?

How much time does it take for the HR round of interview. I have cleared 2nd round of technical interview at Deloitte. It's been 10 days almost and HR said that the next round is pending because of approval from management. Deloitte.
Mid-level looking for advice on difficult situation. Working for a partner who purposely ignores certain cases (and deadlines) in favor of working on others. I constantly follow-up and send reminders to push the case forward, all to no avail. Partner makes up excuses to push things weeks/months down the road—have blown through extensions and lost any goodwill from OC. Partner is now sending CYA emails and will not respond to OC (only dictates emails for me to send). Ideas for dealing with this?
Alright confession fam. I’ve complained here before about my marriage. 8 years with a narcissistic-ish partner + the trauma of hearing “I love you” but being treated the opposite. I’ve finally been honest about the pain they’ve caused. He finally “gets it” but also understands it might be too late. Help me convince myself to leave.
