How many projects had you all implemented/led at 5 years of experience? I had 20+ under my belt when i joined accenture at 4 YOE, and i feel like people a level above me have done like 5 at most, and usually in just 1 area... Really disheartening to be led by people with less experience. I have only been staffed on 1 project as a support since joining, and it's really boring compared to leading 4/5 projects at once like i used to.

I am a fresher who joined at the beginning of this year (staffed in project) and my base location is Bangalore,2days wfo. The primary reason to move to Kolkata being the cheaper cost of living.

Because I’m tempted to send emails saying, while I understand my mistake I do not appreciate the tone of your message/response. Will that not going over well?
