Is SA projects role in Cognizant for tech lead even for lateral hires with 6 yoe? Or can it be individual contributor?

Most SA in cognizant do work of individual contributor only. During interview they told you would handle this many people. But after joining I am individual contributor

Thanks for the input!

Yea for me too, I got hired saying that there will be a team but I’m working as an individual contributor. There’s not many people to ask neither someone to report specifically. Handling client base and co working with on-site people.

Thanks for the reply..which tech are you from?

My husband and I don't want children, or at the least don't want biological children for a variety of reasons (medical, bad genetics, etc.). After today's leak that Roe v Wade could be overturned and the fact we live in a red state, I think I'm going to be more insistent on my husband getting a vasectomy. He's said he's fine with getting one before but hasn't made any effort to talk to a doctor about it, but the latest news crosses a line for me.

A question for any international fishes who have completed a MPP in the US.

I’ve got an offer but no financial aid/scholarships. There’s a good chance I’ll lose my offer if I try to defer and save more money. In order to go this year I’ll need to take out more than 100k in loans.

For anyone who has taken this route, is it something that is manageable in the long run or does it ruin your life?

Context - U.K. students are not offered support from the US government or our own - loans are private

I’m asking out of genuine curiosity - why do law firms promote people who have 0 leadership and management skills to partner?

Is it just politics?
