I used to claim 2k every month for WIFI in TCS for 4 months under straight through employee referral and it by passed my supervisors approval too but a mail used to go to supervisor.
He questioned me a lot after 4 months as if he is paying 2k from his own pocket and I stopped.
Worst policy here. 410 wifi reimbursement we get in TCS lol that gets added into our salary every month.
A normal phone recharge costs more than that and TCS still stuck in its cheap mentality of cost saving.

For all the McKinsey & Company fish, I just got my new updated offer:

112k base; 18k max performance bonus. Old offer was 100k base; 30k max performance bonus.

Is the new offer better? For campus hire BA role btw.

My interview got over on June 29th right after the interview the recruiter called me and told I’m selected and they will be sending the offer letter. He mentioned there will be a delay in releasing the offer letter since merging is happening right now. few days back I sent a mail to HR.. but no reply. and after that I received a mail stating they are no longer considering me for this position. Does this happen to anyone else ?

Some advice from a regular remote interviewer - If you feel you can justify/maximise your value to a company above the current salary band, apply for the role, push for that higher salary and impress the heck out of the panel. You'll be surprised how open that conversation can be.

Company's have budgets in place for recruitment. Therefore, adjustments can be made to other open roles marginally to facilitate recruiting your higher salary request.

I think the utilization metric is so flawed, yet it seems to be the number 1metric people rely to judge fdd staff. It heavily penalizes efficiency (if it takes everyone 5 hours to complete something what motivation do I have to be faster only to need to fill any saved hours with more work). Can you share any ideas on how to improve fdd metrics or perhaps share what your company does that makes performance great again.
