Lol, no there is no report card in the working world. If a company requires recommendations they can find out about your performance but candidates can obviously skew the names they give, so really all they have is your word and their interview skills tp see if you would be what they are looking for.

Typically have to indirectly show how you were recognized as a high performer (placed on the more complex clients, nominated for x committee, selected for x rotation, etc). Other than this, they just rely on your word really.

If someone can verify this? I have seen so many posts here and on Quora too, that TCS release the salary structure breakup after the interview rounds, but do not send the offer letter, even after acceptance of salary. The HR person won't deny you on the face, but keep on delaying that offer letter release would take time. Is this true? Do a reputed company like TCS make such fake promises or raise false hopes in candidates?
