Hoping for candid advice to get exceptional ratings. I want to apply to GSAP in 2 years and am curious if anyone had concrete advice of getting exceptional ratings besides making sure to work hard and take on responsibility. I.e. did you talk to your manager and ask if you’d receive an exceptional rating? Do you need to talk to a partner about that? Do extra and consistent “market” initiatives for partners and SMs you do client work with help you get the exceptional for client?

I keep seeing more and more brands jumping on the NFT bandwagon, and I’m pleading with all of you here to please spend some time on crypto Twitter or in an NFT project’s discord before conceptualizing these campaigns. Some of you all are getting really close to Pepsi/Kendall Jenner territory, so do yourself a favor and pick someone at your agency to immerse themselves in crypto’s cypherpunk culture/community so they can be your resident Web3 cultural ambassador and cringe-shield. 🙏
Hello Folks, How bad is work life balance in Sapients, asking this since most of reviews I read was about poor WLB in Sapients. Another question I have is , what kind of expectations would client demand from Sr. Associate L2 Infrastructure Devops AWS. I am unsure about this whole designation but this what was mentioned in my offer letter cover.
Is there a corporate way to bring up to senior leaders that an IC is causing issues across multiple teams because they are demanding and also doesn’t collaborate well? The IC gives vague “direction” then says they are too busy to clarify. They also refuse to use our project management/ collaboration tools.

Hi guys, I’ve recently joined TCS a couple of weeks back. I have 2 years of work experience in previous company (SAP consultant), but I couldn’t learn anything as my project team just used me for some data entry of project & I lost my skills. The TCS interview also didn’t ask any difficulty questions in interview and they hired me. Now they have directly allocated me for a project and my TL is giving me work based on my experience, but I’m not able to fix the issues on time🙆🏻♂️. Any suggestions?
Help what is Canopy exactly and what is it for? In my experience production jobs do not use it but a role I’m looking at says it’s required. Not one EP I’ve asked has used it. Is it like project management software? What would it be good for?

I got an offer from Thoughtworks GGN as a lead consultant. Being a mother, I have anxiety about joining TW, since it is service based.
1. Bcoz of the recession and hiring is not for specific project, is it the right time to join TW or is it risky w.r.t job security?
2. How flexible is TW for WFH or it depends on the client?
3. How is WLB?

I have a total of 4 years sales experience, 1 year in life insurance sales and 3 in retail banking (lending, investment referrals, merchant services referrals).

Curious to know people’s planning systems. I’m a paper planner at heart, but in this practice, there’s so many tasks and sub tasks for each client matter and each task may be in various points of completion (to do, waiting on, in process, etc.). I’ve toyed with excel sheets, word docs, paper planning, Trello, Notion, etc. and nothing seems to ‘stick.’ Thank you!
