In the research on this topic, I have liked an answer written on the platform Quora very much, and I want to share the same with you all.

This is entirely dependent on the project you are given, the team you are assigned to, and whether you are on the bench or not.

Project- If you’re on a good project, you’ll have as much fun as you can. As a PAT, you will receive KT (Knowledge Training) for your specific project job. Your team can teach you more and more. Work will be assigned to you based on your talents. I’ve seen PAT loaded with all the work in certain projects. (This is common in Ramp down initiatives).

Team: If you have a good team, you will be successful. Everything will proceed according to plan. Every team member will be pleased to assist you in any manner they can. You and your teammates can participate in all outdoor activities. You’ll be able to strike the optimal balance between work and personal obligations.

Bench: The worst place to be is on a bench. There will be no job for you; you will just go to the workplace and return. Your life will not take a certain path. It will be enjoyable at first to remain idle, but as the bench duration grows longer, you will become annoyed. Other technologies will be taught to you. Everything will be in disarray. My advice is to start working on a new project as soon as you arrive at the bench.
