Out of genuine curiosity, after $1-1.5k, is there really any difference in mattresses quality? What makes it worth the $5k?

Yes!!! You won’t know until you buy a $5k mattress
My dad gifted one to me 🙏🙌

I've spent around $1.8 million raising two kids, getting them through college debt free and one of them through medical school. They are amazing and best money I ever spent.

After the interview at Genpact . They called next day, congratulated me for selecting in the interview and had a salary discussion. She is got to offer as I expected and also offered the joining bonus and asked me to wait for 2 to 3 working days to get the offer. After 3 days tried reaching them but no response and after dropping an email got a call from other HR stating that position is on hold so don't wait for the genpact.

Is this common from Genpact.
