What are the advantages of your daily job?

What are the advantages of your daily job?

Being a writer comes with the obvious benefits of not being in a cubicle and being able to work from home. Also, it is inexpensive (both in terms of time and money). I don't have to buy work clothes or raid expensive snack machines or pack my lunch, however one of the best perks, for me at least, has been being able to connect with many well-known writers (outside of Quora). I can text, dine, and share memes with writers whose books I read long before ...

I have a competitive salary and benefits and I can use the skills I learned in college with many opportunities to learn new things. I also have the most amazing and talented colleagues, all of whom are supportive, talented, and fun. We trust each other, there are no oddities.

Probably a collective mockery that we make in the office at everyone else in the company.

I'm not sure if you asked this from a more recent point of view or another way, but still, let me try to answer.

If you are cooler, neither! However, you often have no other choice:

Infosys training is considered quite robust and of high quality. However, what it doesn't tell you is:

  1. You have absolutely no way of choosing what you want to learn.
  2. If you have no coding experience, Infy is much better at teaching you something so that you can earn a living. If you're already in encryption, you may need to reboot.

I'm not sure if you asked this from a more recent point of view or another way, but still, let me try to answer.

If you are cooler, neither! However, you often have no other choice:

Infosys training is considered quite robust and of high quality. However, what it doesn't tell you is:

  1. You have absolutely no way of choosing what you want to learn.
  2. If you have no coding experience, Infy is much better at teaching you something so that you can earn a living. If you're already in encryption, you may need to reboot.
  3. The enormous pressure Infy exerts during training is not for everyone. Depending on the individual and the amount of stress one can handle, it can go sideways. I lost almost 7 kg of body weight without doing any exercise. If you can't handle stress, it's not for you.
  4. Also, there are many things not to do during training. Sure you can stay awake as long as you want and study, but you can't come on campus whenever you want. You can't drink alcohol and come back. Basically, work and play are not possible during training.
  5. If you are unable to complete the training or complete it with a 4.0 GPA average, 40% or 15% of your salary will have been lost, which you will never get back.
  6. You are confirmed after 1 year of joining the production unit, which is much longer than any other company.

However, it teaches you how to code, and depending on your personal goal, you may choose to expand it further. It also teaches you how to handle pressure, but like I said, it's not for everyone.

In the case of TCS, the training is pretty good. You can get your full salary and get confirmation within a year of joining TCS, so compared to Infy, you earn more. However, you have no control over what technology you want to learn or where you want to be published. Newbies typically post to Mumbai or Trivandrum, which may put you off.

Arriving at the part where you are hired as a side rental. For TCS:

  1. More possibilities to live in or closer to your hometown.
  2. Better salary in most cases, but it can vary.
  3. You have a better chance of getting to the site quickly.
  4. More leave, better work-life balance, and better insurance.
  5. For job security.
  6. You can interact directly with the customer.

Against:

  1. There are already many people in positions of responsibility. If you don't get along, you're screwed.
  2. Mediocre work, shorter project duration (in most cases).
  3. Your salary may be less than the previous year, depending on your annual qualification.

For Infy:

  1. Better work environment.
  2. Infy ​​is run by newbies, so if you are a senior, you get more of an advantage. If you have more than 6 years of experience, you have a better chance of leading a project.
  3. If you learn people management faster than TCS. It prepares you to become a PM.
  4. Better salary on site, yet TCS offers better benefits.

Against:

  1. It forces you to become a leader, which you may not like.
  2. Slower to process your visa on the site.
  3. You get stuck with the same confirmation, CRR cycle.
  4. No interface with the client in most cases.
  5. Generally, it will not be closer to home.

None of them will provide you with cutting edge work, if you are not already doing so. For mediocre career growth, you can choose to go with anyone, you can't expect to get nice pay raises or have an amazing project. Both are good once you complete 20 years in the industry, however I do not recommend them before you get that experience, if you have the option.

I had no problem with the job, but those benefits were very good for me.

National airlines: 1979-1980. When Pan Am was about to acquire National Airlines, just before the transition, Western Airlines offered an "interline" vacation package to National Airlines employees. Western Airlines tickets can be upgraded to First Class (and we went to First Class in both directions). 3 days 2 nights at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel in Honolulu, HI. Continental breakfast every morning, a free Luau plus entertainment, coupons and deals at the International Market. The complete package was $ 159.00 for two people.

Pan American World Airways - 1980–1991 Unlimited pass to travel anywhere Pan Am will fly. The passes were free. My children were old enough to travel alone, so I would get them a pass and send them back to Los Angeles to see their grandparents and aunts. Then my dear dad came back to Los Angeles for a week to visit me and brought the kids home to me. Even my mom and sisters could have taken advantage of that.

** The best thing I did as a PA employee was fly British Airways Concorde. They and Air France were flying the team back to their bases of operations when the Concorde was taken out of service. It was due to the Air France tragedy that a tire's rubber broke after rolling over debris and the rubber got caught in the engines and blew up the plane. We flew from Miami to London on the Concorde and a couple of hours later in London, we boarded a Pan Am 747 back to Miami. The coolest trip I have ever done. 1.5 times the speed of sound. **

Hi folks, get ready to see someone really praise and enjoy civil engineering work (I know it's weird, but still).

PRE SCRIPT: I RESPECT ALL JOBS EQUALLY AND THIS ANSWER IS NOT TO DEFAMINE ANY JOB.

  1. I get to work in an open environment. Fresh air, sunshine in winters, relaxing monsoon breeze. I enjoy everything unlike most other interior or desk jobs.
  2. I don't have my project in my hand 24 * 7. We hardly see each other once in the morning and we may do it once or twice before leaving the venue. I can work without any pressure from my project manager.
  3. 90% of my work is done within an hour of

  2. I don't have my project in my hand 24 * 7. We hardly see each other once in the morning and we may do it once or twice before leaving the venue. I can work without any pressure from my project manager.
  3. 90% of my work is done within the first hour of work, that is, at 10:00 am maximum, deploy all contractors, workers, masons, etc., giving them their goal for that day.
  4. Until 11 noon I meet my clients and we discuss the technical aspects that are going to be carried out or that were carried out last night. It includes checking the specifications of the drawing and some minor cross-questions that sometimes seem like a debate.
  5. I am free and ready for the day. Now my mere presence is all that is needed to keep the job running smoothly, unlike other jobs that require your constant undivided attention throughout the day.
  6. My average daily walk is 10 kms. This means that I do not have to worry about my health, unlike desk work where you spend most of the day sitting or in front of the laptop, causing various physical and eye problems.
  7. The more experience you get, the more it adds to your value, unlike in IT jobs, where either you keep up-to-date with each new technology that hits the market, your career saturates after a specific age.
  8. Advantages of exploring different cities, opportunities to meet new people, travel, learn about different cultures, etc., just to name a few.
  9. Respect. It feels really good when people twice your age call you sir and seek your affirmation before making any decisions and the satisfaction you get before going to sleep at night is second to none. It feels good that you are running a site worth millions of rupees.

I work for a large defense contractor near Washington DC. There are many defense contractors and they all seem to offer the same benefits.

What sets my company (CACI International) apart is that we are known for our Work Life Balance philosophy. The company puts the family first.

Generous flexibility is provided to employees with the expectation that you will show up and get the job done.

Anyone who works here will attest to the horrendous traffic jams and other illnesses that can prevent you from getting to work in a reasonable amount of time.

Anyone who works here will attest to the horrendous traffic jams and other illnesses that can prevent you from getting to work in a reasonable amount of time.

Due to the high cost of living, many families have two working parents. Getting kids to after-school programs or daycare in the morning or evening can be a problem.

Work-life balance gives our team the flexibility they need to hold the home together while providing our clients with solutions and services in a timely manner.

I've worked for other companies that look at their watch in the morning but forget it later when it's time for YOU to go home.

So for me, I have to say that work-life balance is the best advantage.

If I'm talking about how worthy you are of your salary and benefits, then you should be doing the following.

  1. Whatever task / job your manager assigns you, can you deliver your work on schedule given that it was discussed between you and your manager?
  2. How well you understand the business requirements and how well you executed that product to make it a success.
  3. What is the quality of the product that you can offer to your customer is very important.
  4. What are all the technologies and the latest techniques that you are using to build your product, so that your technique does not stand out in a couple of years and you

  3. What is the quality of the product that you can offer to your customer is very important.
  4. All the latest technologies and techniques that you are using to build your product so your technique won't stand out in a couple of years and you have to do some refactoring.
  5. How dedicated you are to working on the product whose responsibility falls on your shoulder.
  6. How well did you and your team perform in building that product and what was the customer experience after using that product.
  7. How well you can manage your team and meet all business and employee requirements at the same time to make your product a success.

If you have all the qualities mentioned above and meet the business needs of the company, then you are worthy of the salary and perks.

I hope this post gives your answer !! Health !!

Thanks for reading it too :)

I worked at Infor for many years. Sad place. No annual bonus. Medium products that are difficult to use. Product teams just cram functionality from left to right to center. HR is inaccessible.

Hyd's big boss has been at the same job for two decades. So did the HR manager. No employee-friendly initiatives. Just a song and dance once in a while. A lot of politics. Many bosses seem to get away with murder. No one will even blink. The races are ruined here. It's what happens when you grow only through acquisitions. Nobody knows how to take care of existing organizations that have already been acquired. No advantages of any kind. Just salary. The walks happen once every 2 years. The basics are not touched there either. One day you will meet a senior software engineer turned director. Overnight. In a startup, I can understand.

Oh, did you ask for benefits?

That was it.

  1. Work satisfaction. I've worked in the charity sector for 25 years, they often can't pay as much as commercial employers, so their biggest benefit is job satisfaction, the feeling that what you're doing is important.
  2. Work at home, flexible. With my current employer (more than 11 years) we have gone through lean periods where we could not increase wages in line with inflation, although they do it when they can, so my salary has not always kept pace. However, I now work from home, which saves me time and money on the go: I use Skype or call my colleagues, stop by the office once a week and travel by phone.

However, I now work from home, which saves me time and money on the go (I use Skype or phone colleagues, stop by the office once a week, and travel for outside meetings) and pretty much set my own hours for achieve what I need. . Yesterday I got up at 4 in the morning to meet a deadline, but then I finished early.
  3. Reduced hours. I recently recruited for a new position that needed an experienced person and we were unable to pay full salary from our budget. So we advertise the paper at 80% of the usual rate for 30 hours a week (4 full days or 5 days of 6 hours, your choice), at home, ideal for parents or someone with an additional job. High response from quality applicants, my new guy starts in January.

Not everyone can deliver these benefits, but I think an underlying theme is hiring the right people and then treating your employees like adults, trusting them, working with them, being clear about what you want them to achieve, and not micromanaging. People with autonomy are happier and function better.

There are many perks to working at Cognizant such as health insurance, free coffee, third grade, and the best of which is time in the bank. Here are some of the benefits of time at the bank.

  1. Prepare for UPSC, Bank and other exams. You literally have enough time to prepare for any banking or civil service exam you want.
  2. Prepare for GRE, TOEFL, CAT, GATE, and more. I've seen a lot of people do this and settle down better.
  3. Improving your skills. Frankly speaking, you will have time to improve your skills and apply for another higher paying job. The best part is that Cognizant pays you while you do it.

I am an assistant professor at the Université Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris.

Do you see that tower? That is the Zamansky tower (fr), one of the tallest buildings in the center of Paris. It houses the university administration and some reception rooms at the top.

An unexpected advantage of working at UPMC is that you can climb that tower and enjoy one of the most beautiful views of Paris, completely free for any tourist:
