For those who have worked in industry on the tax side for a high-growth company looking to go public or have gone through an IPO, what was your experience like? It seems interesting but one of the reasons I want to leave public is work-life balance and I'm guessing there's a lot of hours in a high-growth environment?

I am curious to know this as well. I guess interesting work, higher pay and less politics would cover for the similar hours.

True.. no more pressure to sell work would be a perk, too.

Yeah, for me it's more hours. But you don't have to deal with all the nonsense that makes PA a lot worse than it needs to be. Instead of spending 8 hours doing real work and 3 hours doing nonsense - admin stuff, useless trainings, etc every day you probably spend 12 hours doing real stuff (and least stuff where you have a goal, and when you finish it, it actually helps you the next day) and maybe an hour or two in the whole week doing annoying nonsense stuff, if that much.

During 2016, I was selected for wipro as a fresher undergone training, but I did not clear the training exams, so wipro terminated me.During tht time I created NSR profile, after tht I joined another MNC as fresher. I never mentioned wipro exp as previous exp anywhere. Now recently I got a offer frm wipro. here also I did not tell that I was earlier termined by wipro.If wipro asks me to provide NSR details during my joining, does NSR have my previous exp in their db? Does it affect my joining with wipro?
