(She/Her) mentions in LinkedIn profile name is for what?
For those who couldn't confirm its female with their name or pic?

She —-straight
Her—-having someone in life
Just my observation 😅


Yes please help everyone who knows, I get confused too

Showoff (everyone started using it). These are pronouns.

These are gender pronouns specifying the gender the profile owner identifies with.

It is preferred pronoun as per gender identity . While for straight people it will be consistent with biological gender (as it is one and same) ,for others it is not.

There are plenty of profiles in LinkedIn with He/ Him.

What if one thinks they are a table or a chair. They should add an "it".

But then seriously, whatever suits them.

Some stupid trend, ppl get the gender by looking at Pic.

Yeah, I think the same. let ppl put up whatever they want. But a lot of women are doing that & it doesn't make much sense. It Isn't worth discussing about.

I have seen (Him/his) on some profile also

Hello Infoscians/Ex-Infoscians!

I will be joining Infosys this Thursday as a 7+ YOE Tech Lead. I am an avid trekker and every year I go on a trek at least once which requires me to take a 5-7 working days off. Its actually my passion.

Just wanted to know how difficult it is to get leaves approved and officially before how many days do i need to inform my manager?

Is there any SOP for applying leaves at Infy?

Thank you in advance!

Hi fishes,

got the offer from 
BNY Mellon | Pershing BNY Mellon Corporation Pune, India.

The offer letter mentions only fixed pay. HR told me that PF (employer), gratuity, and bonus (8%) are over and above fixed pay. But there is no mention of a bonus anywhere on offer. is this correct or am I getting tricked by HR? Help from current and ex BNYs is much appreciated.
