Hours allocated to do that work is always than the hours required to complete the work and all the people are doing that. I'm scared that if my utilisation and performance is not in line with this process how I'm going to survive here?
Will they fire me or Put in PIP plan ? Is someone gets fired for these reasons as I'm in probation ? I'm not able to adjust in this environment.

What the heck..!!

Anyone who can tell me about how the work pressure and projects in Cybersecurity and practice domain?

My experience so far has been very good. Work wise few projects were hectic but never worked on weekends. Also, don’t think I ever worked more than 12 hours a day baring a few times which is completely okay. I have worked on both short burst and long term projects.
