Hi All,

I have taken a decision and I have resigned from my current organization because they don't seem to be giving me Project Manger(PM) designation. So if my leader calls me to negotiate I will stand on giving me PM position. If they give PM designation then I will stay.

The reason for taking the decision was that if my company doesn't negotiate for PM post, then I will learn SAP netweaver portal and go to U.S through the consultant work for 6 months, come back to india and join a big MNC and get a good position (maybe a practice head in SAP netweaver, which is very hot in the market and not many are expert in it). This way i can use transfer my H1 to the indian company which i will join after coming back from U.S.

Please let me know if I am souning practical and resonable. As always your suggestions will be of great help to me as i still can negotiate with my current employer.

Thanks

Hi Anouska,

Thanks very much for reply, I was also thinking on the same line as you said, but the problem with my L1 with my current organization is that i would have to work on VB when i go to U.S, but my area of expertise is on java. So if i go to U.S in H1 thro' a consultant i can work on Java.

But i would agree that if i go on L1 i would be enjoying the best of both world, but do you think i should compromise with the technology and let my H1 getting cancelled, because my thought is everybody likes to have H1 than L1, since it is company independent.

Hi All,

Thanks a ton for your valuable response. I really appreciate the time you took to address my concern. After giving lot of thought i have comeup with my decision, please as always let me know if my decision is practical or correct.

I have two options.

1. I have a H1 from a different consultant in U.S. So i can go to U.S immediately and start working as a developer with the current consultant for maybe 6 months and get H1 transfer and move into a parmenent role in a indian company in U.S. The reason to move into indian company in U.S is that i was told you may get coordinator role if not a lead role easily in a indian company in U.S.

2. My current organization has promised to file my L1 in May and send me to onsite for a year starting OCT'07. This way i don't have to change my organization and i can have a better growth plan considering the fact that i have already spend 3 years in the current organization.

Out to the above 2 options, i have almost decided to consider option 2 that is staying in the same company and go to U.S on L1. But the issue i will lose my current H1. But what i think is after going on L1, since i am one of very senior resource in the organization i will ask them to process my H1 next year. Also since i am married and since we both in the same organization, i thought if i got on L1, i can take her on L2 and she can also work there.

Please let me know if my decision is correct. I would be really happy if as many people could respond so that it will help me take the decision soon.

Thanks again for your earlier response.

Hi Mav and ArunKumar,

Thanks very much for your valuable response. There is not much technical work here both for PL and PM, just keep developing new spreadsheet(team management plan, communication mgmt plan, schedules, estimates, client calls......)

Another issue is I am basically from Java background, but since i wanted to learn Project managements skills i am currently handling a VB project(for past 2 years), my designation is the same from past 3 years, even though i am doing lot of project management activities. They call me PM, but designation they don't to change.

All my friends are saying i am wasting my H1(i got it 6 months back). All say the market is booming in U.S and its high time i go there.

But if i go to U.S, i need to work as a developer and after 3 years lets say i come back to india, i need to start from maybe again a PL or who knows only a module lead.

Hi All,

I have a decision to make and as always I am sure folks in JavaRanch will help me in taking a decision.

I have a H1 from an U.S company. The company is small and i will working as a contractor/developer in U.S.

Currently I am a Project Lead(for past 2 years) in a major MNC in india, I have around total 8 years of experience but I managing my project independently covering most of the project managers responsibilities. Since my appraisal is due I expected to get Project Manager position, but when I spoke to my leader he said he won't be able to make me Project Manager this year.

I have take a decision between going to U.S (working as a developer) or staying in my current organization working as a Project lead for another year.

Please let me know which will be wise decision. I am eagerly awaiting your response.
