Hi I have recently received offer from HSBC
total 9+ years of experience
Just wanted to understand on GCB level. Why do we have different job titles for same GCB
Query 1)
Consultant specialist and senior consultant specialist both seems to have same GCB 5
Query 2) some people have designation as Assistant Vice president or Asssociate project Manager as well with GCB 5?
What is the over all hierarchy

HR will contact you to get adress for laptop delivery
You would have to collect assest from office of you are in Pune or Hyderabad
Or else they will courier
Rest is generic as usual ,Virtual onboarding


Lol depends what they offer you
How much they offered u ? Whats your current ?

The designation depends on the team you work with. I was told by the hr that, if you work for UK team, you will get that designation. Otherwise gcb5 is avp level. 4 is vp level. I think you need not worry until you get the level 5 here.



How much were u offered ?


Exp ?

I am working on getting one. Will get atleast one

U got offer from HSBC and not joined yet ?but it shows u work at HSBC

Hey i would be joining next month. Can you please help me with the basic process of boarding process? Also what have you received from them?

Did they mention what's the average time frame, growth from AVP to VP?

2 yrs is a miraculous time line. I was told by colleagues that for every step within level, it takes 2 yrs. Which means from 5.1 to 4, it may take 6 yrs. I think it is still OK as level 4 seems to be highly experienced and bu heads.

My girlfriend and I live in the same 1BR apt (600sq ft.) in NY. Both full time telework. She is constantly stressed from her job, whereas, my project is currently in a lull and I'm not busy. I like to walk around the apartment and one of the places along my walk is the bedroom, where she works. I work in the living room. I always ask to walk in and give her some "love" as she's constantly stressed. Today, we fought because I "bother" her too much and add to her stress. What do I do?

Typical crazy time on project. Working everyday. How are folks keeping work/life balance to make sure there is time for family and the rest of your life? Feel like projects are setup to give as few resources as possible and make us work excessive hours for small pay raises and bonuses. Don’t want to use up all my good working years. Especially with aging in-laws/parents, teenage children to set a positive example for and a spouse that needs and deserves time. Looking for any valuable insights!
