Infosys Offer in Pune

Hi All Ranchers

Yesterday I got the waited job offer from Infosys (INFY)to work for their office in Pune for a Europe Business Unit.

The position is of Programmer / Analyst with lot of Design and Team Leading work.(Kind of Tech Lead in outside world I guess)

I had my interview long time back and I never heard anything from them for 4 weeks so I thought they rejected me and I joined HSBC in Pune.

Both these offers (HSBC which I joined and INFY)are kind of same, HSBC being on higher side by 50K Per Year, but INFY I have lots of benefits such as different kind of bonuses depending on my personal, Business unit and Company performances QoQ. Loan Benefits and god knows what.

The INFY HR guy said that they cant wait for more than a month and I dont see any reason why I should HSBC now, as I recently joined and planning to goto London for 6 months. So far so good.

Just wondering if it will be possible for to hold on to Infosys Offer for sometime. Will they entertain me if I go back to them after 6 months are so and tell them, Ok I am ready to join you, please offer me again.
Just in case if i change my mind and want to work for INFY.

Little confused about what should I do now. need some insights

The hard way forward or the easy way out, aah the good or bad dilemma!!

My half-informed opinion would be that since you have joined HSBC, you should stay professional, unless you have real reasons to leave that job. If you leave HSBC and join Infosys today, what if you get another offer later with a slightly higher package?

IMHO, if you are confident about yourself, and what you can do, I think you can find a better job than the Infy�s offer at a later stage if required! So why not be professional, and feel proud?

Well, the decision is upto you but to share my experiecnes, I found the HSBC HR very rude. Kind of why to call them 'Human' Resource Managers?
HR is the face of the company they said.

INFY's HR was different. 'If you are not able to appear for the test coz of no fault of yours, it is my loss' One of them said to us. Game of words, might be.

But the former one did not even look at me when I was waiting for a meeting with the person!

Im much junior to you but I know by experience that 'To be able to be professional, one has to be working with profesionals'.

My advice on confusion, join INFY NOW if you want..if not, do not keep the 'six-month's time' business. The HR person might change, the project might end, the vacancies might fill.. anything can happen on which u or any other person might not have a control.

Also, one month's experience you can do without showing on CV. But if u leave any company at Team Lead level in 6 month's time, people will think twice before hiring you.

If you continue at the current company, do not blame yourself for making this choice sometime down the line.

Look at the bright side, you have to choose only from 2 companies right now and your chances of making to a good company is 50%.

Good Luck!

I think HSBC will be better.As said in one thread,inaddition to support they do have Web technology work ,security related work etc.I am not sure how much % they are going to do in India.But writing Banking software related experience on a resume is definitely a + than sitting here and 'communicating with client' whose face you havn't seen.
In HSBC,bank employees/customers will be your client,if I am not wrong.Also bank is quite succussful and established.Infy too same but bench concept in offshore sucks.
HSBC center in Pune is supposed to be one of the best offshore shop in Mumbai/Pune area.Thats what I heard.
Don't give much importance to these HRs.Get the experience,get the pay check and move on.
