Shifts exist of course and the oncall rota ensures that at least one senior team member is available to guide junior staff who are typically tasked to routine shift roles, provide approvals for any task that requires it.

In rare cases (more than X systems in a cluster fail or there are multiple failures across a system and DR failover may be required etc) there will be a swat call in which case everybody gets paged out.

People have been using electricity, phones and manufacturing plants 24x7 as well. But these industries have well established processes with people in shifts. One person required to not have a life outside the company is not something that should be encouraged, in IT or anywhere else.

People don't stop buying stuff online or using EC2 / AWS cloud instances just because it is a holiday for you, and the service keeps running.

So any ops person will be quite accustomed to carrying a pager in rotation - say one day a week, 3 days a month or whatever, and being "on call" for any failures in a system that he is responsible for. Regardless of the cloud service that he works for.

If getting woken up at 3 AM for a server crash isn't something you care to experience I would not suggest an ops role at a cloud provider.
Saw your reply after posting this. But this is something that should be streamlined with teams in different time zones, otherwise it does nothing but cause burnouts.

While I agree about work life balance -

Escalations are very much streamlined and process driven in such organizations - with staff in multiple countries and on shifts. This is for emergencies where a pager call is sent out - meaning you can live your life, but be fairly close to a laptop and a phone in case that sort of emergency occurs where your specific help (eg: as the person who wrote the code that is malfunctioning, or one of the resident db experts for escalation of a serious problem) is required.

Any one has information about Kamai Elevator company? If so, how good is this company? Especially job security-wise.

Apparently (and this is from my team-mate who used to work in NTT Data) the work culture is very good. However, which office of NTT Data are you joining? My colleague used to work in the South End office in Bangalore.

Most of my friends who are in sales tell me that for them work never ends, especially B2B sales, where you try to sell from 9-5, and your customers will call you up when they are free = when you are free.

I'm sure everybody in IT here is potentially on call all the time, except that the odds of it happening are very remote.

Folks any reviews on Capgemini and CTS? My wife has to decide joining any of these companies. She is a QA and likes to know how the career growth is, is their company transport available and how is the average yearly compensation factor? Any pointers from you all would definitely help her as she has to join by Wednesday.

My wife spent over a decade in Cognizant from the earliest days of their testing practice, before she took a career break about three years back.

Cognizant has extensive and deep testing expertise available but please note that for testing in any company at all, the demand is going to be for test automation and these days, testing that integrates with devops practices, rather than old fashioned manual testing.

Every large IT corporation has transport available especially with added security precautions, for women. As for compensation, I guess it depends on what package your wife got from those two companies in her offer letters, how many years experience she has and at what level etc.

Thanks for your answer hserus. She is selected for automation testing only. We are not too concerned about the remuneration but need a stable work environment over the next three years and hence looking for a company which provides a good work environment along with good career growth. She is a dilemma now having multiple offers but looking at CTS and capgemini with Wipro in the mix. She currently has 3.6 years experience and has got a senior QA role in all the companies.

That is up to your wife to decide so if the offers are roughly similar factor commute time into your decision making process and pick the nearest to your home.
