Why 5 day a week travel?

Work with your team lead to taper that back or take a week remote now and then.

You shouldn’t be expected to travel 100% indefinitely. That’s what burns people out...


Congratulations. You are a consultant now.

Accenture AM level 8 or Capgemini Manager C2 Level? Which one should I join? Package is nearly the same.

I have two offers one from IBM another from Persistent. Persistent is paying 2 lakhs more than IBM. Although IBM is giving 2 lakhs joining bonus.

Which one should I go with?
People say IBM doesn't give any hike. Is it the same even for Salesforce practice?

And anyone knows hows Persistent?


Hi Fishes,

Please guide me what you would prefer to join between TCS, Accenture and Deloitte if all the offers are in same range. Indeed Accenture is bit higher than the other two .


Do you find that working remotely has decreased your confidence? I feel much less certain and much more anxious/insecure about my ideas and copy, when being physically apart from my art director and creative director. I think it’s because I have time alone to overthink it all. Does anyone else experience this or have ways to overcome it?

Started with a new law firm in a new practice area in the fall. Now I’m pregnant with my second child and due this summer. The firm offers up to 4 months of leave. I can’t think of a good reason why I would shorten my leave despite being relatively new at the firm and in the practice area. I’m honestly concerned I will resent it if I do. Would you shorten your leave under these circumstances? If so, why?

Hi fishes
I was supposed to have my
Amazon Round 3 interview in the first week of May but the interviewer didn't join. My recruiter didn't reply for a few days and then rescheduled it.
Even in this rescheduled interview, my interviewer didn't join. This time my recruiter joined and said she'll reschedule my interview.
She still hasn't done that even after a follow up.
Is this common? Is this some kind of patience test?
I have no clue but I'm really frustrated at this point.
Please suggest
