Saw some 3rd year A's not get promo'd. Poor performers or another reason?

Not necessarily poor performance. Maybe they got pulled into some project not related to their focus and being used against during promotion decision. Tips: say no to some dumb projects. Reach out to leadership and raise your concerns.

Some advice from a regular remote interviewer - If you feel you can justify/maximise your value to a company above the current salary band, apply for the role, impress the heck out of the panel and push for that higher salary. You'll be surprised how open this conversation can be.

Company's have budgets in place for recruitment. Therefore, adjustments can be made to other open/upcoming roles marginally to facilitate recruiting your higher salary request.

Hello Amazing people,

I am going to support a partner in my company on top of the CEO/Founder and COO. He never had an EA before… He doesn’t know how I can help him. He asked me to think of ideas to brainstorm together. I am pretty new in the company (2 months) and I do not fully understand all the sides of his role as I was focused on my CEO and COO. He mainly work on our company marketing and branding.
We have a first 1-1 tomorrow and I am trying to think of on thought provoking questions.

Hello Fishes,

I had given interview
Mindtree and cleared both technical rounds. On Tuesday 29 March 2022, I got a call from HR for the final discussion. After that I have not received any response.

I have been calling the HR and her manager, both are not responding to mail or calls.

Is there a way to get some information if my candidature is still in progress or is this delay natural? I have another offer from another company, but am more interested in joining Mindtree.
