Describe your work/life balance?
I am able to manage my work and life due to 2 reasons. 1) my husband works in same domain that is Automation Testing. His support has been incredible with ideas, guidance and encouragement. 2) is the company I choose to work for. I am bit choosy regarding the companies I like to work for . I like the companies like us who care for employees the benefits such as flexi hours, work from home option, discounts ,good people to work with and so many… which makes my life easy and exciting.
