Has anyone ever heard of companies having a blacklist? I did an internship with a company and now whenever I try to get staffed onto that account, the client won't staff me. Happened many times..

Are you sure it’s a blacklist and not for independence purposes? I could never do work for a previous employer, our conflict policy doesn’t allow it.

If you have been employed and did something dumb to get fired, you may be ineligible for rehire, but always possible. Have not heard of consultants being checked against that list - takes too much coordination and HR is normally not the financial buyer.

Nothing. I had an internship. I was a young and dumb intern. Slacked off a bit and unsurprisingly they didn't hire me or offer me another internship so I moved on and found other internships.

Agree with EY1, most mature clients do have an “ineligible for re-hire” list but I have never heard of contractors being screened against that list. If the work is in the part of the company where you interned, it is possible that folks remember you and somebody has told your leadership to not staff you...but even that seems excessive.

If a blacklist does exist, do u think its going to impact my consulting career?

Hm it's possible it's for independence purposes.. I didn't think about that.

But I've known many folks who came from the client and now work the same client account so that does seem unlikely.

Well I didn't get fired and I didn't do anything dumb. Also the projects proposed were definitely not in the same group so maybe it's all a massive coincidence but I just found it strange. I was proposed to go to that client 4 times and all 4 times I did not get staffed

Yes. Blacklists have existed at all my customers (HR Consulting). It’s real AF. But I was under the impression that it was for their candidates, not ours. Interesting. You must have done something they didn’t like. Again, with what I’ve seen, it takes something big to be blacklisted

Do you block off chunks of time in your day to avoid meetings? For example, time for lunch, or heads down time for focused work, etc. I wonder if this is unethical? For those who do it, how much time do you typically block off in a day?

I'm 5.8 yrs experienced currently working as associate with 6.2 LPA (Incl Var). I offered by TCS ITA role with 9.7 LPA (Incl Var & ret. bonus). Is it worth the switch? I didn't switched till now in my career. I asked 11 but they told 9 & finally it's 9.7. Salary structure is confusing & different than CTS. Pls tell about the monthly performance pay & quarterly pay since, it constitutes 11k monthly so, how much will i get? Does it depends on project? I need a move as I'm not treated well here
