Is it for Health + Hospitals? If so, run far away now! Actually, if it’s for any hospital I’d still say run. I’ve been working in hospital supply chain / procurement for four years and it’s the most antiquated and frustrating work I’ve ever dealt with. If it’s for a public hospital it’s even worse because there are a lot of rules about bringing in new products or technology. Also, even if you start out with a good base pay raises are likely to be inflation. No bonuses. Impossible to move up unless someone leaves.

Hi folks,

I am confused of the basic pay in salary structure. My current CTC is 4.5LPA and my basic pay is 16,590. I have an offer from TCS and they are offering 8.5LPA, in the offer letter the basic pay is mentioned as 15,000. Why is it lower than my current one. Should I ask HR regarding this or will it be same for everyone who is around the same salary? I am not sure about it. Could anyone please clarify me on this.

Thanks in advance!

Is IB worth the sacrifice of WLB? Obvious pay is really good but are the prestige and pay worth it if you’re planning on only doing it for a couple years?

Currently working at an IRA with great WLB. Honestly I love my job, the firm, and people I work with.

Also doing MBA part time at a T15 school. Thinking about switching to IB but I’ve done my research and I think I would burn out of IB in two years but I might be ok with that for the opportunities after.

This is super embarrassing, but I figured I would ask here before going to my nurse. FTT transfer is next week, got the paperwork and saw no sex, or orgasm for eight weeks. No issue I thought, I’m doing this alone and have not been in the mood with all these hormones. Until last night. Lol. While I was mostly asleep and dreaming, apparently my body decided it was finally turned on. Has this happened to anyone else?? I was barely awake, but ended up taking care of business a lot. Go easy on me! 😳
