So true. The travel thing always blows people's minds. And also trying to answer the "so what do you DO" question. A: "depends on the project". I think people find it mysterious. Also, I work in human capital, which a lot of people think is human trafficking.

Hey guys ,
I was a fresher when i joined wipro
My manager has given me rating 1 in confirmatory appraisal on may 18 may which happened after completion of 1 year at wipro.
I raised the issue of rating with my manager immediately , he convinced me not to worry , ratings are already submitted , I asked him to resubmit cause i don't deserve rating 1
So he said he will look if that is possible but didn't changed .Now after 3 months they are pressurizing me to put a resignation,what should i do?
