Why does everyone put Tech / FAANG on such a pedestal, claiming it’s better than MBB. Sure, the comp and WLB may be better, but you won’t be doing as meaningful and impactful work e.g. Govt Covid response, Gates foundation projects, industry defining projects in the space of a few months etc

Dear TCSers... I got a call from a TCS er.. last week and he interviewed me saying he received my CV from an external source. He shared his tcs email id, asked me to make minor modifications in the CV and then there will be a client interview. He said he will get back to me. I reached out to him 2 days later and he informed they were evaluating my eligibility with TCS. It has been 4 days since that and I have not heard from them. What does this actually mean?

Has an offer to join a smaller but growing firm. Will get a decent raise, but I'm concerned about the lack of delivery capability. Seems like the expectation is they want you to be able to do it all, and they brand and technical breadth is not as established. Looks to me its high risk and the reward is just the raise they offer. Anyone has similar experience can share their experience?
