Hi guys Shell Bangalore has opened their offices from 1st March with coming to office as voluntary till May and compulsory from June onwards. Now with metro construction going on Outer ring road ,its a mess and a very hard job traveling back and forth. Karnataka government issued advisory last year for the companies on ORR to continue wfh til the end of this year atleast but the companies don't care about that.
Shell should have atleast taken a survey beforehand or kept WFO voluntary till 31dec

Hi All,

I recently interviewed for AC position in Lilly India and got an offer of 21L CTC (fixed~18). I had 2 questions which I need help with:
1. Is it at par with what the ACs at Lilly get/what the other candidates have been offered?
2. I have heard that there has been a lot of attrition in their SFO team of late due to montonous work, lack of growth and decreasing variable payouts and hikes? Not sure if it's true, but their entire SFO leadership has switched to other firms within 2-3months


Need some advice/guidance. I’m currently with a F500 company, on a great team with decent benefits, A+ WLB, but my entire 8 yrs of recruiting has been retail/hourly roles, and recently have been wanting to expand my arsenal & get into tech/engineering. I currently make a comp of about 90k. Amazon recruiter reached out & they accepted my 150k comp expect & I’m now at the “on-site” interview portion. Recruiting is for engineering or IT roles. Is the Amazon WLB really that bad? It’s a big increase.
