I have been offered a job at grade 10 at NTT Data UK. The pay is good, however given my experience (19 years) and current designation of Associate Director in a large consulting, it looks like I should at least get a higher grade like 11. What are your thoughts? Will it be wise join at grade 10?

At least with US operations, the role grade is the based on the role, not the applicant. You'd be wise to push for more compensation, better incentives, etc. but the grade isn't really contingent upon the candidate's qualifications.

Are there 11s or 12s you see of interest? If so keep applying.

Hi fishes ,

I have joined Accenture this year in July
My variable component is 2 lakhs which is 21% of my fixed
How much of this can I expect in variable pay?

Thanks for your inputs!!


Felt I received a couple of unfair performance reviews from the same engagement - the senior & manager definitely had a “boy’s club” mentality so we were civil but at times felt they didn’t like me. Their reviews lowered my overall ratings to slightly below average and I wasn’t promoted. Thing is, they never communicated I was as bad as they rated me while I was working with them, and I definitely put in the work. Anything I can do?

Marketers, I would like to know how do you guys feel about your agencies.

3) What is your expectation about an agency? What problem they should solve to help you in your routine?

This will help me a lot.
Thank you!

Does having corporate NPS account make any difference? Ultimately we get 50k additional deduction only ,right? So between an employee giving a voluntary contri of 50k to an individual nps account and another whose employer's contri 50k to corporate account will give the same benefits, isn't this understanding correct?


Has anyone been given a brief as part of their Interview for an Account Manager role? Any suggestions on what exactly they are looking for in a response?

I’ve been at FAANG for a year and due to the economic climate I’m considering going back to consulting but I’d rather work at MBB than Big4 if I’m going to do consulting.
Does such a switch happen often? I’m thinking about going to the technical wings of MBB companies like Quantum Black. I also have a non target school so don’t know about my chances.

Can anyone provide an honest summary of the bench policy? I’ve heard everything from 2-10 weeks

Considering a move to NTT Data in a healthcare consulting role. Mixed reviews in the bowls. Major concerns are bench policy, staff aug roles, 2 week PTO, and high turnover due to job dissatisfaction. Recruiter and mgr had great things to say around growth and opportunity, which doesn’t align with feedback from the bowls or Glassdoor.
Understanding things have changed there in the last few months, I need un-biased advice from fellow fish who have recently joined or can speak to recent changes
