Since when cognizant started travel for project? They used to deploy temporary to client city?

For all intents as purposes, Thursday is Friday

We should use that as our slogan: be a consultant, get two Fridays a week (and don't mention the Mondays)

Hi experienced sharks. I joined Deloitte as a campus hire in Jan 2021, I am a 2020 graduate. I come from a tier3 institution. In this virtual setup, peer to peer learning is missing. I have completed 1 year of experience in IT, still I feel doubtful of my skills. I don't have much network to discuss this with. I had a long benchtime last yr, though I am staffed onto a project now.. team doesn't talk much. please share your inputs for fast upskilling / points that can help me in my career. TIA.🙏

Might have just made myself look bad, but I’d have done the same thing over again. Started a new client (finally thank God) and was supposed to be the only 1 staffing it. Found out an overseas person was allocated. Reached out to manager/partner - they didn’t realize and both made bad comments about them. So I asked… if I had to work with them. They planned for me to do the engagement alone anyway, and why would I want them if they clearly don’t either?

I just changed my role to project management...I start to hate this when I'm doing the detailed plans. I have never been a detailed oriented person and it takes too much of my mental energy when working on very details.

Most of the time when the ideas are good and I can see the concept I have no problem following along. But it’s when their ideas aren’t clear or wishy washy my mind start to wander and I have to really force myself to focus. 🤷‍♂️ Do I need adderall? Hope not.
