I have an offer from 3-i infotech (formerly, ICICI Infotech) for onsite as Java engineer to Singapore for 1 year. How is this company in terms of pay/culture. I have 3.8 years of experience in J2EE and how much pay I can ask them in Singapore currency to live there with family. They said, one year can be extended if their client is satisfied with my performance.
I look forward for your suggessions.
Thanks & Regards, Surya.

Consulting in Singapore is not a good idea if you are not earning atleast 5k sgd. if you are a foreigner most consultants take advantage of you, they will deduct 15% of your salary every month. They never give raises. If the market goes bad, they will bluntly tell you to go back to India.
The job market is good now but the consultants rule here and frequent changes in job every year is really bad. Consulting at such a young age will not take you ahead in terms of IT career. you need to do one SDLC completely in a company and give a stint of 3 years if you really want to grow as an IT professional (ofcourse on ur choice of career and technology)
Instead look for good companies in India which send you abroad on deputation for 1 yr or so. This is my first hand experience.
