Working Life Management:
Good question. When I joined as fresher I worked 14-15 hours a day, thinking that working harder and longer I can become more competitive. But, the day I started working 8-9 hours, health wise I felt good and work wise I saw a better output. Work shorter hours and work harder during that hours

My grandmother is my role model. She raised 4 grandchildren after her sons early death (my father). She gave us everything we need, food, the best education, comfortable life. She is a single, strongest, the most intelligent woman I have ever seen.
Advice For New Professionals:
My personal opinion is your hard work, your team work and your never give up attitude is what that makes your career shine. Get your hands dirty. Don't just wait for training, teaching and spoon feeding.
