I posted this question previously? but I deleted it for some reason.

Can anybody tell me how is AOL Bangalore?

I would be joining in Channel Search Engine in J2EE. I was offered 5.5L and current CTC is 3.3L. Currently I am in chennai with my parents. Is it worth to relocate in terms of pay, work, hike, growth and culture.

Please provide me some inputs as soon as possible.

Good Culture! cool work environment. Plenty of oppurtunitties. But no onsite you should keep that in mind. I think your salary is good hike. so u should think of that. As a place bangalore is much more expensive as Chennai so u end up the same. I know this better because my wife is in AOL. But over all great atmosphere

I think most of development is in Dallas, USA. But also they do development mainly they are currently moving on to AJAX and RUBY. So great prospects if you are interested in those things. But maintenance job is also cool. As of now I am finding it cool doing it myself for a major bank.
regards,
Abhishek

It's one of the best company to work for. Very good work culture and HR and people policies. Less number of good quality people so less problems. Good salary, excellent work, less working hours in short heaven. Good brand name also-they take utmost care of employees. Just dont think-go ahead.
