Hi Fishes, If someone joins Samsung Research Institute, Bangalore as Chief Engineer, does he/she have to give competency test every second week (twice in a month)? I read some comments on glassdoor that they force you to take those test and pass, otherwise they will ask you to leave. Is it really like that ?

Thanks in advance.

Why bother to hire someone as CE if you don't believe they can do the job!? I hope this is not true.

Not true

Samsung has this test culture. In NCR it is more serious. Don't know much about BLR but ive heard people have same complaints for SRI BLR also.

Hi everyone

Is it Okay to join a new company with an initial offer letter?
I asked for a revision to my initial compansation and HR says it's approved but said it takes time to update. And there is some Workday Application freeze, so it might not be updated before my joining date.

But HR Is guaranteed on Compansation Revision

I am in a doubt regarding that, because if I join with the initial offer letter, what if they didn't revise.

Need your suggestions

Hi All,
My sister has cleared all the rounds in Accenture. HR contacted her today to negotiate the salary. My sister asked for 8LPA FP. HR said the max fixed pay they could offer is 7.5LPA. My sister told she would think and get back in few minutes.

Within 5 minutes, HR moved the candidature status to “on hold” due to budget constraints. None of the HRs are answering the calls. What can i expect?


I am feeling worse as i advised my sister to tell HR that she would get back. :(
