1. You should forget that you have any personal life, when ever you apply for leave for vacation, one question asked to you, Billing loss ho jaayega. 2. Company is totally depend on client statement, of client said this is bad person then final verdict is employee is bad. 3. Appraisals in end of year (October) is maximum 5-6% because the manager always said, abhi to new project hi nahi hai, promotion, Appraisals ye sab directors and Partner ke liye hai.
