So You Work in the IT Industry, Could You tell Me about SMAC?

My MDI Interview experience :

WAT & GD Topic: Freedom of Expression doesn’t mean that one can make Insensitive Remarks.

Decent GD spoke about 5 times,

GD became chaotic at the end when the panelist told us to summarize.

I proposed that we could speak in turns so that Everyone can listen to each other

and we did the same

PI : Panel 2

2 panelist both females playing good cop , bad cop game i.e one acts sweetly while the other one was hell bent on breaking your confidence.
