I guess a better question is why go to Siegfried when you can just go to industry

likesmart

I left for industry a year ago and it’s pretty stagnant. Not sure if the Siegfried Group is where I’d want to end up next but based off of my own network, CFGI, Siegfried and Riveron seem to be where most of my friends who left Big4 headed to

Stop the cap with this post

Siegfried is my safe word

The comp is super shady… a lot of clawback bonuses and they have a super aggressive non-compete. The jobs are also more temp work than strategic (compared to CFGI, Connor Group, or Protiviti)

I took my first day off in 2 years to take my son to the beach. A partner forced me to work all Father's day on a truly unnecessary project due to his own neuroses. Next day I call because our issue is resolved. I'm making a sand castle when I called and he proceeded to berate me about how the problem was my fault (it wasn't). He knew I was at the beach and even ended his rant by saying he hoped I was enjoying my day off. I'm wondering why we put up with it. It just doesn't seem worth it.

You all must have seen the recent news in which Infosys is the butt of many jokes for bungling the Income Tax portal roll-out.

The outage is really embarrassing, since I am myself facing trouble during ITR Filing.

However, the devil is in the details. The project awarded is worth 4000 Cr (540M) but the govt. has reportedly paid a meagre 150 Cr (20M) so far.

Expecting a vendor to launch a production-level system by paying less than 5% of the project cost...
