Thanks Deepak and Junilu.

Deepak: you have pretty much summarized the whole thing, yes the situation is exactly same what you have described. I am just trying to evaluate whether the new job offer is worth accepting. There is always a fear when you leave present organisation and you evaluate whether it is worth taking a risk

Junilu: I am in pre-resignation discussion with my present company, I raised my concerned earlier with the leadership however it was not addressed before. Now when I told that I'll be resigning, they are coming up with various options to retain, like pay hike, work from home etc, thing is as you have correctly stated I may end up wanting to move to another company anyway, and that could be much sooner than you think it will be right now.

Hi,

I've around 11 years of experience, I am working for this company for last 6 years and prior to that I've worked for a company for almost 5 years, so in all in last 11 years I've just changed one organization. From the job satisfaction perspective I am fine with my present job, salary is fine, role is kind of also fine, only problem with this company is work life balance and the city I am living in, most of the time you have to work for 12-13 hours a day and also long commutes to working place, I recently got married and want to give some time to spouse and family. I've got an offer from another company which is kind of a very big organization, the working location is also a small city which is my preference, salary wise they are giving me around 30% hike from my current company however variable part of the salary is quite high. I resigned from my present organization however now they are offering me senior roles, salary hike and client site work location etc, should I re-consider my present company as I've been here for quite some time and changing a job might be more painful. I don't know what kind of work life balance will be there in new organization but have heard they are relatively better than my present company. Another thing is my present company is a fast growing medium size organization which is having a fast paced environment and the company which I am considering is pretty much stable company where growth chances are not that much.

Thanks Raghavan and Victor for you suggestions, I've decided not accept the offer and stay in my present organization till I complete my five years here and then look for better opportunity.

Hi,

I am in India and have around 10 years of IT industry experience, I've spend almost 5 years in my present organization which is mainly a consulting company, prior to that I've worked for another company for almost 5 years, so in my total 10 years of experience I've changed just one company.

I am now looking for a job change as because I don't find enough challenges in my present job mainly due to I still want to stick to technical side rather than switching to management roles, and also because I haven't changed lot of companies so my salary is not at par with my experience. I've got one offer from other product based non-IT company which is offering me a little bit more than what I am getting, the salary they are offering doesn't excite me at all however I find that role is quite challenging. I've following questions, it will be great if somebody can provide his opinion or suggestions on these.

1. Should I accept their offer or look for more options out there as market is quite good and I think I'll get certainly better package.
2. Should I complete my 5 years in my present company so that I can avail my gratuity and other bonuses(it will be another 2-3 months that I'll complete my 5 years here).
3. What kind of package one should accept with 10 years of experience in IT industry, technical architect role?.
4. After 10 years of experience what kind of role one should expect in Indian market ?

Thanks and Regards,
Babloo

Hi,

I've around 6 years of total experience out of which first 4.5 years in a small organisation and 1.5 year in a big known MNC, right now I am having a role of a person with 3-4 years of experience, I've performed very well and my leadership acknowledge that, however as far as promotion is concerned I don't see it for another 8-10 months down the line and this is communicated to me. I don't like hoping companies for money and role promotion unless I enjoy my work however most of my colleague say that it is unjustice to your experience, please provide your valuable suggestion.

Regards

In fact I've never encountered a deaf person at all, at least noone who could not function even with a hearing aid.



I've also not encountered any deaf person but encountered lot of dumb programmers.

all of them are good..but If Techspan is giving you onsite and you are keen for that then go for Techspan..Have you verified who will be your client? Sapient is also good in terms of quality of work.



There is some onsite opportunity in Japan at Techspan for about six months. could you please give an Idea about the working environment and other factors there.

I think Sapient has a good brand name as compared to Techspan, Infy has got only brand nothing else so I am not considering Infy.
