Hello All,

I am currently working with one of the top Indian IT company and has over 5years of experience in Java/J2EE. Also I have onsite experience (USA) of around 2 years. Due to low salary in my current company I have started attending interviews. Now I got an offer with one of the worlds largest financial services firm with very good package. (10 LPA Fixed+ Bonus of upto 20% of fixed salary)INR in my preferred location i.e. Hyderabad, India and they have mentioned that there will not be any onsite.

My current employer is now offering an onsite opportunity of minimum 12 months to retain. Now I am a bit confused on what to choose i.e. considering the pay going onsite I can save 100% more than what I save in India after changing the job but in terms of opportunity not sure if I will get the same again after I return with such a pay in Hyderabad, India location.

Request you guys to please provide some inputs from your experiences.

Regards,
Ram Charan

I think I know which IT company you are talking of
5 yrs exp and 10 LPA + 20% bonus is a very good offer. In your current 'top IT company', the opportunities are less. As you might have noticed, offering employees an onsite just after they put resignation is an age old practice in this company.
In the longer term, does the new company offer better prospects?
If yes, you should take it. If not, better come onsite and save some $.
However, my reco is to take the new offer...because finance domain knowledge is always preferable than working for an offshore consulting company where they keep tossing you from domain to domain, project to project.

@Devaka

Request you to understand the importance of the query than worrying about the subject line.

Request you to please be respectful to others

Devaka and Campbell are trying to help you keep this discussion alive. A subject like "Needs advice" is likely to be scoffed at by users around the web. Discussing IT company names is prohibited in this forum. Campbell's comment is not directed towards you, but rather to Victor. It is a gentle reminder not to mention the company's name.
