Hello Ranchers,

Today I been offered a Postion with IBM in Pune. Salary negotiations are still undergoing. They offered me 450,000 INR Per year which is what my epxections is. I am a J2EE Developer currently in Mumbai with 4.5 years of experience so looking at the current trend in India, I am happy with what they offered. Though I would like to more :

Are there any hidden components in the salary such as Variable Pay and/or Yearly Bonus.

I guess they are pretty laid back with the work and all, which is what I am expecting.

I dont know where are they loaced in Pune? I am from Mumbai.

I am looking for a long term with my employee so is this going to be the best place to work.

What other benefits should I expect from working with IBM in Pune.

Thanks

Hi All

I guess I will agree with you all. For me Pune is the best place to live. I spent few years there whille I was in college and stayed in many Cities as Houston, Washington, New York, Detroit and London

And now I am back in Pune and dont want to live any other place

Hi All

I recently bought a Digital Camera (Sony DSC P73L) and really happy about the outcome.

All the pictures I have taken are scattered all across my laptop. Just wondering is there any software which allow me to manage (Adding titles, Slideshow)those pictures on desktop as well as Online so that I can show them to family and friends.

Thanks

Hi All Ranchers

Yesterday I got the waited job offer from Infosys (INFY)to work for their office in Pune for a Europe Business Unit.

The position is of Programmer / Analyst with lot of Design and Team Leading work.(Kind of Tech Lead in outside world I guess)

I had my interview long time back and I never heard anything from them for 4 weeks so I thought they rejected me and I joined HSBC in Pune.

Both these offers (HSBC which I joined and INFY)are kind of same, HSBC being on higher side by 50K Per Year, but INFY I have lots of benefits such as different kind of bonuses depending on my personal, Business unit and Company performances QoQ. Loan Benefits and god knows what.

The INFY HR guy said that they cant wait for more than a month and I dont see any reason why I should HSBC now, as I recently joined and planning to goto London for 6 months. So far so good.

Just wondering if it will be possible for to hold on to Infosys Offer for sometime. Will they entertain me if I go back to them after 6 months are so and tell them, Ok I am ready to join you, please offer me again.
Just in case if i change my mind and want to work for INFY.

Little confused about what should I do now. need some insights

Thanks

Hello All

Last week I got an offer from HSBC Global Technology Center in Pune. But I am still not sure if I should accpet it or not.

The offer is like this : 10% Increase over my current pay. 50K INR signing Bonus (Almost my one months pay).

I will be moving to London as soon as I join them for the period of 6 months. During this time my Indian pay continues, they will provide me place to live in London and 30 Pounds Tax Free only per day.

Is this a good deal. Will I be able to survive with 30 Pounds Per Day in London. I am sure I wont be able to save anything. The only saving will be my Pay in India for 6 months.

Thanks

Hello All

This is regarding a job offer for the Postion of Project Lead from one of the "Big Five" Indian IT Firms in Pune.

Well, couple of weeks back they interviewed me, first telephonic and then they called me to meet them in Pune.

The very same day the HR Manager offered me the job and he tells me that the Pay and everything gets decided at hydrabad HQ. He just have to fill up couple of forms and the HQ at Hydrabad will decide on my Pay and stuff. He also tells me that everything works on the Intranet ERP System so first he will send me the pdf offer and if I accpet then he will send me the offer by courior.

So I called him after 2-3 days and this guys tell me that it (The Offer)is still under process and confirms that the offer is final and I can have his word for that. I call him again after a week or so and now he tells me that there is some problem with the internal system and that's why he can not process my offer. meanwhile I get an automated mail from the company, givnig the me username and password to access the internal system what he was talking about. I do see in the system that this guy really filled up my information in the System (Info Like DOB and Mailing Address). So he really filled up my info in the system.

I call him again and now he tells me that the problem with the system still persists but he tells me my Pay Package and everything, but I dont have any formal offer yet so that I can give my current employeer some Notice Period.

Now he is telling me that system is still not up and he is very frustrated about that and he will get in touch with me as and when the System is up and runnig and when he is ready to generate the Offer Letter.

Well this is the company I want to work for (Which I doubt now ). I am getting little nervous about this job offer meanwhile I rejected couple of other offers.

Should I be patient and wait for his reply or keep on calling him untill I get the offer. What should I infer from the entire situation. Is this guy credible enough. I dont know

If he has to reject me then he would have done it upfront right? Why would he make up such reasons.

Thanks

Hi

I don't know where to put this so I am putting my post here. I want to know more about the Software Estimation Methodologies available.
I am doing it for quite some time now but without any scientific or any formal methodology.
What I use currently in my project is my past experience from the same project or discuss it with my manager and other people, which isn't scientific.
I think its time for me to learn more about it. Briefly I want to know how do you come to the estimates, timewise, effortwise and resourcewise.

Suppose I get a Change Request from the Client, how do I go about estimation of it so that I can commit something to the client and Deliver it on time.

Thanks

Hi All
In the same Interview I was asked following Questions about Design of a System:

1) I want to create a MIS report for a Retail Bank Portal, where I want to see how many customers logged in a given Period of time. Suppose that there are 100,000 rows in the report. How do I go about designing this System?

2) There is a Web Based Form which is of 4 Screens. I want to navigate from Page 1 to Page 2 and so on (Back and Forth). When I come back from Page 2 to Page 1, I want to retain all my Entries on the Page 1. What would I use here? forward() or sendRedirect().
