Hi guys,
I started my career in a small company as a .NET programmer with sql server db.
After 1.5 years & i got a offer from a good MNC where i was interviewed for .NET & i was put up in EJB, WLI stuff ,
After an year .. i was assigned a new project & worked in jsp / servlets with 10G DB and some web services related stuff.
Now in the same company i'm being put up in Perl / Mainframes. Is it good for the growth my career ? I was thinking about this all the day and came up without any solution.

Now Look forward for replies from the authors / bartenders & from fellow ranchers...

Currently, many of the big firms who have mainframe systems prefer Java/mainframe/cobol skilled people. Thanks to the stigma attached to the mainframe platforms, many people do not wish to associate with it creating a shortage in this arena. Go for it...but also keep your Java skills honed in case you get bored in future.
