I have been in Java indusstry for last 5 years ( exp on Core Java,Spring,Hinernate,EJB,JMS,WSDL,Struts,JSP,XML,GWT etc etc..)
My Current salary is 7 Lacs per annum (expected to reach atleast 8.5 lacs after appraisal).
I am very happy with my current job profile ( Though my designation is developer I am playing role of leader and architect for last 1 year..Due to some issues which I cannot reveal, I would like to switch on and this time I want to make sure that I join a company with good project..
Well I wanted to know from you guys following things :
1> what would be best expected CTC in pune to ask for ? and this will be for a Product based company...I guess it should be between 10 & 12 Lacs but not sure whether I should ask for 10 or 11 or more..
2> I dont want to go into management side so what designation I can ask for> Technical architect seems very far from me ( even Junior Technical architect) and dont want to be team leader ( and then PM) ....
Its not that I am greedy ( I may be
) hence I want to go for more money,reason for asking more CTC are :
a> Its not that company is donating money ..we work we get paid..its business.
b> I dont want to leave next company due to less increments in next teo appraisals even after good work ..appraisal system in india ( especially pune) in patehtic in most of the companies...SO I want to negotiate when I am joining itself..
Any Suggestions are welcome as always...!
