So true! Why can't they pick up the phone or answer that damn mail? Why are they ghosting us instead of telling us the feedback ? (P.s I never ever ghosted/didn't let the phone ring to recruiters, even I reject an offer I make sure everybody is well informed and treated well) but I always end up in Ambani's P.A who care a bat's eye about others!!!!


The ones where I work aren’t so bad but I’ve interacted with some rough ones in the past.


Ha true in 80% cases.

The shortage in PA has a bit to do with the great resignation, but everything to do with the way the PA model has been upended due to offshore work. We used to barely have the right amount of seniors to staff jobs since many left for industry.
Now there are fewer staff due to offshoring work, which means 20-30% fewer people being trained up to senior. Combined with fewer accounting grads in general, leading to demand>supply in industry (driving up salaries there!)=long term problem. Solutions?

Hello Everyone, I need your suggestions. I worked as a Software Tester for 1.3 yrs during the beginning of my career 2006 till 2007.

You intend to join JFrog? My serious suggestion. Don't. Just refrain.
Their treats can draw you in. It's not worth it..
If you're a person who likes being micromanaged. Go work at JFrog.
The toxic culture, absurd targets (sales team). Bangalore's managers / leadership team are terrible individuals. The business creates top-notch products. No idea about Israel and the US leadership. But in India, it's horrible. Contact individuals on LinkedIn who have previously worked at JFrog in India.
