Hi Fishes,
Is it good to switch 'Jade Global' from TCS?
I have never heard about 'Jade Global'
Is it a big MNC?(PFA company logo)
And could you please also suggest how to verify a company is a big MNC or not? So that we can undoubtedly switch there from TCS.
Thanks in advance

In tech trans at a big firm, but my work is almost all M&A deal support. I read, review, and mark up countless agreements, but don’t get to draft any. Am I still in a relatively good position for going in-house at a tech company, or are in-house tech jobs reserved for people doing tech trans at the Cali firms (Fenwick, Cooley, etc.)? I’m developing IP-related skills, just not drafting...

Got an update on mid-year promotions. Only those who resigned in december/november and the firm wanted to retain them are being given the updated offer letters so that they have some assurance (coming from a SM i had a call with today). Rest no one has any more clarity as to what exactly is going to happen. Counselors are 100% not involved unless its an SM promotion.
They need to give some clarity pretty soon.

Women of color - With plans to go back into the office in the near future, what hairstyles do you plan on wearing? I had relaxed hair prior to the pandemic, went natural and don’t want to go back. I would love to wear braids as it’s also summer/active life friendly, but as much as it should be accepted, its not seen as professional by most. Weaves with natural hair is a hassle and closures are not active friendly. Crochet hair has too much volume. Any thoughts?

I am transgender and I don’t believe that gender is made up. When being trans became so complicated? I was happy with the “I was born in the wrong body” storyline, which can be easily explained by how the brain is formed, hormones during pregnancy and etc. I believe transgender-ism can be perfectly explained by biology, we just don’t know all the answers yet.
