So... what's the ETA on that analysis?

Yeah. You need some you time buddy. That’s not ok.

I’ve had dreams with KRIs before. Try to top that! Lol

Let me tell you - doing analysis of market data issues in your sleep is not as productive as it sounds.

Has anybody hopped over from an MBB/T2/B4 type of firm to a boutique? Thoughts /perspectives? Would appreciate either a push off the ledge or a pull away from it. Generally fed up with the long hours, lack of project variety, and the firm’s small practice and lack of focus in my interest area and wondering if things would improve at a boutique that specializes in what I want to do.

Hi all, I am in discussion with TCS for salary negotiation. They are offering less CTC than the offer in hand. They are waiting for my confirmation to release the offer. Now, I am thinking to ask them to provide me onsite assurance(not now but at least in 6-12months), so as to compensate for the ctc difference. I know that account has onsite opportunities at my band. Is it a wise thing to ask the manager to give me onsite assurance in written so as to compensate for the CTC ?
