its depends on the offer you got.

See if you are able to save around 10L in Bangalore its better to stay safe side..as US market is under recession.But its still depends on the package you are getting in US company.And if you are unmarried i say..you should go and take risks...because this is the time ..you can take risks...otherwise..play safe and join bangalore based comp.

I need your help also....

I had filed H1B from consultant.I got mail from them that USCIS recieved my appication and attached scan copy of reciept from USCIS with payment received and appication no ( 13 character).

But in status its mentioned my application is "pending" .

But i have my receipt no and receipt of H1B petition filed.

Is it means my case got selected in lottery ??

I am very much confused.....plaese help me if you can..

Dear

Mr. Gopal,

Thanks for giving me suggestion. As i am married, i cant take risk now in US.
as you informed, if we save 10L in bangalore then better settle there, but as of my knowledge i cant save that much. since intially my hubby will be in job search, and i need to take care of my father and mother-in-law.

so suggest me in this situation.

Coming to your problem, your application got selected in lottery system.
Once got selected in lottery system UCSIS will validate your application, whether your qualification(16 years education) suitable or not.

So dont worry. you hear good news shortly.

Look beyond just pay scale alone.

-- Look at the technologies you will be using, soft skills you can learn

-- type of role, type of project, business acumen of the company

-- life style

@Sunita,

As Arul suggests, look beyond the pay alone. There are so many factors to it.

1. How conducive are your family conditions. As far as I know, visiting India from the U.S is not a joke.

2. Look at the career path. See where you will be, in another 2 years, 5 years and 10 years. Which one would give better breakthrough.

3. Work out your commitments too, if at all you have some.

4. This is very important. Ask yourself what you like to do!

IMHO, there's no necessity to go to the U.S. India has got everything you need to have a fabulous career, but this is a very personal opinion, and this definitely does not inted to demean the other countrie's opportunities!

All the best!

In my opinion US experience will add weight to your career and will give different exposure which you may or may not get in India. In future you may or may not get US option again but, you can always come back to India and can get good offer. So I feel you should go to US for some time and if required you can come back to India.

Good Luck
