Having 15 years of total experience. Out of which 11 years in a same service based company lets say A. Wanted to explore out side and trying. Almost close to getting an offer in product based company lets say B.

B was sold to another investment company before named C and with that, they are re-vamping/re-factoring the architecture of the products in B.

But the plan from C is to stabilize B and sell it to another buyer (whoever it is) by 2017.

Is it safe to move a head with the offer ? or stay back in same service company ?

Don't know. Is any job “safe”? There are all sorts of things to consider:-
  • 1: Are your skills common or rare? How much demand is there for your skills?
  • 2: Is the new product likely to be stable, with a robust market?
  • 3: How well established are the new and old companies, and the people maybe buying the new company?
  • 4: How happy are you where you are?
  • 5: Will it be good for your career to stay put, or should you be seen as somebody who is willing to take risks?
  • We cannot tell you what to do, and you appear already to know you should not tell us the company names.
    Look through the financial/business pages of the newspapers and see what it says about the different companies, but remember that the job market may be unpredictable wherever you go.
