Rajat Mukherjee's Stuff


I'm fairly embedded in Silicon Valley - we moved to San Jose from New York. Check out my blog: Silicon Thoughts.

I've worked at several technology companies, at different ends of the spectrum - from IBM to Lexity, PurpleYogi (startups) and from Research to Product Management! My experience with multiple search companies leaves me uniquely equipped to write A Brief History of Search - A play for 3 ages.

In reverse chronological order - QuixeyYahoo (Take Two, via acquisition of Lexity), Lexity (acquired by Yahoo), Google, KoollageYahoo, Verity, PurpleYogi/Stratify, IBM Almaden Research Center and IBM Watson Research Center. I've made the observation that Silicon Valley is unique in that you can move companies without having to move your home :-)

My university days: I went to Rice University in Houston, Texas for my MS and Ph.D. after having completed my B.Tech. from IIT Madras. I did my schooling in Bangalore, India - St. Joseph's Boys School followed by Bishop Cottons...

I have a bunch of hobbies - soccer, table tennis, writing, music, photography, movies, ....too many to be really good at anything!

Here are some photos from Flickr ...

It is good to finally catch up with you. Every time I have found your pages over the past 5 years, you had moved on and tracking down you email has required quire some detective work. I am your classmate from St. Joseph's Boy's High School and live here in Charlotte NC. We were much closer when you worked at IBM in New York and I was up the road in Albany at GE's R&D Center. However by the time I found your web page "Rat Tricks", you had moved on. I would love the chance to catch up with you. My email address is arebello@carolina.rr.com and my work address is alec.rebello@bankofamerica.com. I will be on the road for a few days for work so my work email might work better while I am out. Look forward to hearing from you.

As I dug a deeper review of past, I found some pretty scary things. Like for instance that their writers are almost all Pakistani (over 30% of their daily web traffic comes from the country) and use FAKE AMERICAN NAMES to pretend they are native English speakers. Isn’t it time this bullshit be investigated? I don’t care what you think about paper writing services (whether you believe they are ethical or not) but at least take down the companies that are pure scams like
Click on this link and wow yourself:

That’s right, this website is one of the top 12,000 most viewed in FUCKING PAKISTAN.
Why? Because they are the “English speaking writers” this fucked up company hires. I have also found evidence that suggests they have other writers in India and the Philippines. I know of a couple of companies that offer real English writers and I thought was one of them. Turns out they’re just a bunch of liars.

The scam is real. They are thieves who could care less about you. Maybe you’ve had a couple decent papers from them. But sleep well knowing that they will take any measure to screw you over.

That’s enough. Rant’s over. Fuck you,

Miserable experience.They ripped me off for $600 for a dissertation and refuse to give me my money back.”

You are right. I have been debating with them for at least a month now, trying to get my refunds, it’s because the writer can’t even write shit or follow the prompt. Claimed to be “professional” yeah right. They also claimed that they refunded my money already by just clearing out my balance. However, the email I received from money bookers still saying I was charged on that date. They lied & keep on saying “your refunds should be in 4-6.” i waited & after 2 weeks, still nothing. I keep on checking back even though they closed my inquiry many times. I mean, I only uploaded $55 for the balance, but I didn’t use it. The money isn’t that a big deal, it’s just the writers & their service is poorly done. I cancelled the writer because 1. Passed deadline 2. The paper was off topic, completely vague, lacks development & much more. 3. way different from U.S writing style 4. Busy schedule & I just want to try how this service work. Personally, i definitely to not recommend this service.
