I received a decent paying offer but there's a probation period of 6months that comes with this. Should I consider this?

This is common with most of the MNCs




It should be fine.


Very common, I'm switching jobs with the same terms

That's comforting. Thank you

As long as you are confident that you can perform well, I wouldn't worry about it.

Anybody else over working in the rat race altogether? I’ve jumped around a few times in the last 5 years, improving my comp and aligning more to my strengths and interests, yet I’m still unfulfilled. I’m pretty much doing exactly what the last 20 years of being in consulting has prepared me for: advising clients at the highest levels - and I’m bored. I’d love to leave and take up a more creative job, but of course, that doesn’t pay the bills - anybody think of, or actually made that transition?


Any recommended books, trainings, skills for transitioning from consulting to chief of staff role?

Also appreciate learning points from those who already transitioned to a similar role.

During 2016, I was selected for wipro as a fresher undergone training, but I did not clear the training exams, so wipro terminated me.During tht time I created NSR profile, after tht I joined another MNC as fresher. I never mentioned wipro exp as previous exp anywhere. Now recently I got a offer frm wipro. here also I did not tell that I was earlier termined by wipro.If wipro asks me to provide NSR details during my joining, does NSR have my previous exp in their db? Does it affect my joining with wipro?
