GDS is a backend type of a profile. Join a firm where it provides you more front end, direct impact and decision making roles. EY/Del/PWC/KPMG GDS services are good in terms of WLB but again not the target place to work mainly because they are 2nd hand profiles. If you want to get a brand on your CV then it’s fine. If you already have a brand on your CV then go to a place where you make good money.

Staffed on a project, where I am responsible for QA the tickets and there's no defined criteria; Also I don't have much background (because I am staffed during the middle of the project).
