Disagree. Lots of people take advantage of kindness as an appearance of weakness. Don’t be naive.

I comprehend fully. I’m saying it’s naive to make that assumption and a recipe for being taken advantage of. Sometimes when people fail to comprehend it has nothing to do with the message and everything to do with the listener’s preconception. You’re intentionally misrepresenting my comment, which is NOT that kindness equates to weakness, but that many strong people prey on kindness, particularly of those who believe that kindness equates to power and unkind people are weak. Comprehend now? Cheers!

Hi Fishes, So, I had joined kpmg a month back but I got a better offer from pwc so want to join PwC, I have already resigned from kpmg and to the hr I said I want to take care of my family and join family business as my reason for leaving. While filling the PwC Bgv form(by first advantage) they have asked for my Kpmg’s hr details. I am worried whether the hr (if contacted) may mention about my reason as family business, in that case, will my bgv fail with PwC?

Hello Fishes! Please help me choose between Nagarro & ThoughtWorks. They’re both offering almost similar compensation. I am FrontEnd dev with 6 + YoE. Is Nagarro really providing permanent WFH? Also, they have a policy of sticking with one project for at least 18 months. Not sure about such policies in TW, but they have moved to hybrid work model if i am not wrong. What’s the max TW can offer for my exp? Since there is still some scope of negotiation. Nagarro’s final offer is 27 LPA incl 5% var.
