This is my third year living in New York! I think something that I wish I knew earlier was the size and ease of transportation from some areas.

I would personally recommend looking for living in boroughs like
- Brooklyn
-Queens
-Bronx

Some areas in these boroughs are way lower in rent than Manhattan and could easily get you to your job with one train ride.

A commute may help you save thousands a year. This hopefully could get you paying your own mortgage instead of rent

Hi All,
I have got Offer from Publicis Sapient, CTC 14LPA, Permanent Remote work. However I have heard recently they are firing lots of resources , they are engaged in hire and fire policy.

Not sure how true is it !! So should I consider my other offers (Mindtree , CTS ) instead of Sapient ? Do they revise offer and match !! Please suggest.

My former company (a small business) lost it’s only contract to GDIT. Prior to learning this, I was interested in boomeranging back. My former colleague that still works there told me right now, GDIT would be looking to take over my former company’s employee base. Should I still try to go back or is it too risky? I know they’d hire me back at the former company, but unsure if GDIT would.

Finally a sunny day for the Peacock

This is a VERY long story. Even skipping parts will take awhile, so I'll hit the important things first.
