Hehe.....Don't see a point in a separate thread for that...But firstly, isn't that like one of the first questions that friend of yours is supposed to be asking the recruiting manager !!!!
What is the hierarchy in Satyam Computers?
How does one progress from Software Engineer onwards?
Need to know as a friend has been offered "Assistant Consultant" job and he needs to know as to how high or low it is in the hierarchy
