I worked at the Kolkata office before as a secondeee from the US. It's horrible. Malaria, food sucks, garbage everywhere, power outages, floods, protest, and no water in the office. Everyone drinks from shared water bottles.

I took a screenshot and sent it to the director and was like...so, we're getting a different team, right? Honestly I was even more concerned by the fact that she didn't think that might be something to check with her supervisor (or literally anyone else in her office) about before asking me than the fact that she didn't know what it was.

^r u serious

@PWC please tell me you're lying

@PwC4

That's sad 😞
