Hi everyone, I joined EPAM Systems in India as Software Engineer. It's been already a month failed couple of internal interviews haven't got placed in a project. I'm preparing as much as I can. I'm feeling these internal interviews are bit tough. Question 1) Is it safe in EPAM if one is not in a project. How long can one stay in bench. 2) Is there a possibility one can get into a project without these interviews.

I’m looking for recommendations for a bench top bandsaw. I’m willing to invest in a nicer one down the line, but right now I want to keep it under $300. I mostly see Powertec, Shop Fox, or Wen. There is a $375 Grizzly I’d consider if it’s way better than the others. Any thoughts?

Hi Fishes, Anyone who joined PwC AC Bangalore recently and is/was on bench for 2-3 months? I'm worried about getting "FIRED". Does PwC fire in such cases? Connected with Deployer, Coach and RL many times they say I should wait and need not worry whenever requirement will come they will inform me. I have been on bench for 2+ months now.

What happens if I stop weightlifting for a month? How much progress will I lose? I’ve been training six times a week - 3 days running and 3 days lifting. I’m getting burnt out. I have a 10K race coming up (registered and all) so I don’t want to stop running. I started weightlifting in March but really committed in May/June. My lifts (3x10 reps) are currently: squat 115, bench 70, deadlift 90. I’m 5’1 125 lb female if it helps. I don’t want to lose all my progress but I need some type of a break


Hi fishes, I recently got an offer from Epam anywhere (Lead Software Engineer A4) - 30LPA and Uplers - 32LPA (offer being rolled out) So far i really like EPAM anywhere as an employer but overall CTC is not satisfactory.. I am aware of their 50k bench policy but i think i can ask for a fixed CTC as per the new salary structure (correct me if i am wrong here) Do you guys think i can counter EPAM anywhere with the higher offer. What's the salary range for Lead Software Engineer A4?@ TIA


Has anyone else silently quit their current job? I'm so mentally checked out (also currently on the bench). My manager has been trying to push me to find new roles but I could honestly care less. I've actually been working on getting out... I feel some level of guilt and anxiety but this isn't for me anymore.


Nagarro , YOE -4 ,Tech stack -QA , I have joined Nagarro 6 months ago , i was tagged in first project AFTER spending 2 months in bench , project was in manual testing , I asked the manager for change of project and he approved that I was released from project within 1.5 month , again got tagged in project project started very late and now there is again manual testing , should I re ask to change project ,or search for other opportunities outside ???? I want to work purely on automation testing

I've been released from my project in tata consultancy services, i have >1 year of experience, that means i have to pay bond amount of 50k. Do i need to serve notice period while I'm on bench now or is there a way of not serving notice period. ?

Guys am really concerned about the EPB deduction.. I still have 75 days.. in NP But the responses am reading in various groups about EPB deduction is hilarious.. Thinking to get it confirmed from HR...!! If he says it will get deducted, I'll ask to shift me on bench as I don't see any point in working for a minute more for current project.. Or else I would really not give damn about the work.. Just login and loggoff.. Any suggestions PS: Many post suggest EPB from Mar 21' till LWD deducted HCL T


Is it normal to feel guilty and withdrawals after busy season? Being on the bench feels weird even though I know I’ve earned this free time after the past rough 5-6 months. What can I do to feel better about this? I know I should be studying for certifications but I’m just feeling tired and unmotivated right now along with anxious for when things pick back up. P.S. I am an A1
