Hello guys, I have just 5 days left in my NP and I need your help.
Capgemini or Cognizant or Nagarro, which one to choose?
I know according to market news, cognizant looks kind of volatile right now, but I would really appreciate if you can provide your input based on your, or your knowns experiences!
Thank you so much in advance!
Hello guys, my colleague said he's facing issues with his client's Oracle database. He said it took his team 8 weeks to query the database. Database size is 3TB. Eventually, he wants to delete all data from the database and then shrink the database. The deletion will probably take forever to happen too. How can he optimize queries to the database? And how can he eventually delete all data fast and shrink the database successfully?
I haven’t been able to land a job. I have been trying to do my own projects. But, companies ask me about “real” experiences. I know I could do a real project by volunteering but it hasn’t been that easy either. It’s 2021 and I don’t know if it’s smart to afford another year on job searching only.
How did you all start your careers when it was hard to find in early years?
Head of vs Lead vs ??? Considering job as an “Engagement Lead” where the key responsibilities will be to lead client engagements but also create a new team that does not exist. Engagement Lead in my mind is not an effective title for someone with direct reports. Considering if I should negotiate a title such as “Head of Engagement Management” or something of the sorts. Any thoughts?
I’m on a 2 month gig with a set project rate. The GCD hit me up saying there’s a new brief they’d like to bring me on and bounce some ideas. I wrote after the kickoff about setting up a new contract since the one I’m on has nothing to do with this new project. Soon after all meetings got canceled saying that the clients are going with a smaller team. Think I dodged a bullet for giving free ideas but wanted to see if it was the right move? Avoid agreeing to future projects?
In my second busy season of PA (2 years ago), auditing a specialty finance company that we all quickly came to realize stunk to high hell. We ended up issuing an adverse opinion over a disagreement with the client to book an approx. 100MM write down adjustment to deferred revenue. We walked away with the thought that we had just scratched the surface of their corruption. Fast forward 2 years and low and behold they’re under a 1.2B dollar investigation by the SEC and their CEO is in prison.

I joined Accenture recently. I have core data analytics background . After joining, I am tagged into a project within one week and I have found there is no technical work in this project. It is just a normal support project. I don't want to work in this project as there is no technical growth or learning. To whom shall I raise a concern for this? Accenture India Accenture
What’s the best group rate for client/agency hotels in Santa Monica that you’ve seen? December shoot. ~8-10 people. 1 week stay.
I was placed on a PIP due to a project where the client didn’t like our work and from there I crushed the PIP and got off of it with no issues. Unfortunately, I was told my work was great and people gave great feedback but I still was placed on it anyway. I was terminated luckily with a 45 day severance package and honestly grateful to have finally been out of there and to a firm I like.
Looking for advice from fellow tech consultants- how the heck do you action on feedback that stands in the way of promo that’s vague such as- “work on driving the client strategy more”? Why can’t it be “save X dollars” or “build Y feature in Z sprints” to get promoted?
If anyone's "base location" and "project location" is different in TCS. Will he able to do work from "base location" as it his hometown and in HR round clearly mentioned that he has some location constraint.
Or after project allocation will he be forcefully transferred to "project location" without his consent and "base location" will also changed? (*new joinee; 5+ YOE)

I am in a client service account associate role right now helping AMs/AEs/Producers manage their books of business. A recruiter reached out to me with a Client Manager position.

So I’m on a case team where I’m the “anchor” aka most experienced member of the working team. It’s me, a fresh out of undergrad woman, and our day to day project leader. Technically he is supposed to be our manager but I’m ending up spending so much of my day to day time in addition to my own work checking the other woman’s work, answering her questions, screen-sharing stuff that I’m doing so she can learn, and sometimes I find it’s at the expense of me finishing my work on time. Also, when…
Nearly for 5 years in Non-IT: I have performed well
2 months in IT: Struggling to swim in this IT service Ocean, especially feeling it difficult due to personal pressures. I feel dumb, passively procrastinating due to the lack of clarity over tasks. Manager/colleagues pose as cooperative yet demanding at the same time.
I've been complaining a lot, had a word with RM at TechM, and my managers at client side. Hinted that I'm struggling to cope up. I feel very sceptical about my future.Need help

Does anyone have a foolproof process for those mystery daycare stains?
I use the Puracy stain remover from Amazon as a pretreatment and that gets 90% of things. If that doesn't work, I try a Shout stain remover and a pre soak in Oxyclean. If that doesn't work, I mourn (and realistically still put my kid in that clothing item anyway).
Thoughts on two bridges? I’m considering buying a place in One Manhattan Square specifically.
