Aasma, you can also try Valuelabs, virtusa, applabs, valuemomentum etc..
these are the midtier service companies and you can land a good pay pkg too.
You can easily get the contact details from web.

vikram,
Not sure how much hardcore game developers are paid in india. In US though its a very high paying and critical skill...the companies you mentioned are animation companies except maybe for indiagames..
you can surely try for indecca, pune. they do seem to pay pretty well with good long term prospects.

Ivy Comptech is not strictly into gaming..they are more into providing gaming platform infrastructure and system support. But they are the BIGGEST payers in hyd. My frnd joined at 6+ yr exp for 17lac/pa.
Dont have much info on bally Systems..but they are acvtively recruiting.
I was approached by two startups in gaming recently. one was games24*7 , based out of mumbai and i do have the contacts for this if anyone is interested. This is a totally hush hush project.
The other is Indecca in Pune. They recently set up shop and are software providers for poker portals all across the world. they had offered 16 for my exp(7 yrs). Contacts are with me.
both of the above are looking at primarily java/j2ee skillsets + unix

Fair Isaac is heavily into analytics and credit scoring. Dont expect run of the mill stuff(that is if you are good enuf to clear intvws in the first place ). I have a couple of friends there..overall a good company with a good dose of everything.

The formula can be simplified as ~ (no. of years exp) * 2.2.
Sorry to say that there are very few BIG companies in India which can meet it.
Trust me..EMC can definitely pay this and a little above too..
Else, try adobe, informatica or trilogy in blore..ivy comptech in hyd..
Remeber..big comanies and big pay scale dont go together

Most product engineering companies are harping the Agile buzzword..but very few practise it to a T. I am of the opinion that it adds no greater value to your technical skills but it certainly enforces discipline, team work and co-ordination in oneself. Its not for the lazy go types who want to leave for home by 5pm
SpikeSource is a hot new company in this space in blorehem out..

CEI , eForce Global, Collabnet, Athen Healthcare, Certus, @Road, ObjectFrontier are good options in chennai w.r.t product development.
Mind you, companies are galore everywhere but do your due diligence in undertsanding their competencies and finances before plunging in just becos the superficial stuff is goo(pay, facilities etc etc.)
