  • Friends in college is not equal to colleagues in office.
  • Never do gossiping and bitching about anyone. If you don't like someone better keep it to yourself.
  • Learn from your colleague/seniors. If you are the smartest person in the room , you are at the wrong place.
  • First impression matters.If you are a fresher do your first assignment/task as best as you can. First impression that manager makes of you will last for a long time.
  • Tell your manager upfront. If you are assigned a task/project which you do not like, tell your manager politely about it without any hesitation.
  • If it is not given in writing it doesn't exist. Any promises made verbally, doesn't exist if it is not officially mailed to you.
  • Don't share your personal/financial life with your colleagues.
  • Always stay employable. Keep learning and upgrading skills, and always stay employable that in case if something happens you can get a new job within a week. Also learn skills other than what you are currently working on.
