Bonds, the bane of IT industry

I am the absolute flag bearer against bonds that companies make freshers sign. They are toxic and you should run away when you see one. However, there are exceptions to this rule. I have wanted to write on this issue for a long time but I need a better on-ground understanding of reality and I need you to help me.

Tell me your story. Have you signed a bond with a company? If yes, how has it impacted your career? Have you got such an offer? How did you go about it?

I will be reading all your stories and giving you answers and advice with whatever capability I have. This experiment is something that will bring me closer to you.
