I have more than 7 years of experience working with an Indian BIG IT Services company and am currently well placed in the organization with consulting assignments.I am a J2EE architect. I have been approached by a global bank to be part of their IT initiative in India where I would take part in managing projects executed by India IT vendors and also to provide technical inputs to the vendor team.
The pay packet is brilliant with almost more than a 50 % hike , but I have to relocate to a tier-II city.
I am a little confused as to whether to take this offer or not. The things that are crossing my mind are what would happen if the bank is not witnessing the growth it expected in India or, there is a tectonic shift in the technology area. Although, I am very eager for a change where I have some sort of a new setup .Where,I would not find 4-5 years experienced people crying for managerial positions with no real abilities or, people thinking that they have reached the end of their life with a job in one of the PRESTIGIOUS IT Company etc .. Any suggestion is welcome.
I have worked with one MNC company which had similar model. What I learned is, it is better to join such company if you want to do management, and you have expereince more than 12 years so that you get good position ( and ofcourse good salary too ), and less work. :-)

You are better person to decide if you can go in tier-II city.

I think doesn't matter if bank grow in India or not, you will get lot of work because of offshore developement center in India.
You can learn banking domain if you have not worked on it previously. If you are hardcore technical person with technical apptitude, you will get bored/frustated in such offshore development centers where you are not really doing any development but managing vendors and managing a team which do analysis of change requests and do change request. All new development projects goes to vendors. [ August 24, 2007: Message edited by: Rajesh Thakare ]
What could go wrong in a swell place like "The Evil Eye"? Or with this tiny ad?
