2 years ago I shifted from private sector to public sector job in India. ( I have 15 yr exp so far).
Considering the nascent stage of GOVT of india in IT sector a lot of it is like CMM 1.

I feel a dilemma after finishing 2 yrs in this job

1) if I continue longer I will loose my edge. it's way cosy than private. I am working from home town.
2) 15 yrs exp means it's time to dig your heels deeper in ground instead of fidgeting around with Family.
3) these are contract job 2 yr renewable ( but who can guarantee a job more than 2 yrs in today's changing world)
4) my tech part in current project is over and still they want to retain me for operations and maintainable phase (as in I m also responsible for it)
5) I'm not O &M guy. I like quiet and hate to follow up other people.
6) if I look for change I will most probably have to leave home town.
7) I am trying to shift to other project in IT in public sector. (but am apprehensive of point 1).

Is my experience of working in government sector IT project mean good for my future.
(Basically a public sector IT project is nothing like private sector project. Those who worked might agree. )
A) What are experiences of people outside India who worked for their governments?
B) What are experience of my fellow Indians who are doing/done these public sector jobs? (Maharashtra, AP, Telangana, Kerala, MP, Delhi etc)
C) Are they good for your career.
D) should I continue to O&M Phase. ( this is an accident response system which involves multiple stakeholder who are technology illiterate )

1 week and nothing substantial... however life can not wait and i need to get over this crossroad.

I have decided to go ahead and take control of Operation and Maintainance. If someone believes  you can do something  whereas you yourself do not - The least you can do is to give it an honest shot.
and leave everything else to God.


(Needless to say i have checked my city for better jobs,moreover  my family can not take another hit for moving to a new city. At least not right now.)

I fervently apologize, that I can't contribute anything  because you are way more experienced than me and I don't have experience of that sector which you've been asking. I'm delighted you made a decision which will definitely be beneficial for your family and you. Yes rest cares are always taken by God
