      Growing company with lots of opportunities and having some strong core values.


      Upper management at India level has no work ethic.They wont care about what you do workwise . They only care about what thier perception is about you and will only act accordingly as per their limited knowledge of you or gossiped information.They have no expertise techinal or non technical to be able to know or understand as to what you do. Monopoly and politics is what they indulge into.

        Flexible work schedule and beer tap at work


        Upper management has no idea and rarely listens

      Feel free to post any interview questions you might be asked and I’ll help you compose an effective response :)


      Senior Consultant

      Hi everyone, I have an upcoming technical interview for Full Stack software developer position at Oracle. Do anyone know what should I prepare for? They need Java and Reactjs. What should i prepare from Data structures. Role require 3-5+ years of experience. Oracle


      Marketing Manager

      Interview pink-red flags you’ve experienced? Maybe it’s not enough to stop the application process but you store it away for later as something to think about if you get the offer. Or just deep red flags where you knew this would be a bad step to keep going forward?


      Case Manager

      Have some upcoming interviews. Am currently on administrative leave from my company because I went to bat for a endangered client and exposed some wrong doings at the company. How should I deal with questions about why I'm leaving my current job? I'm proud of what I did but I know it could give potential employers pause.
