EDS is one of the best MNC to work. Work culture will be very good. Also they will pay very good salaries. The HR policies also good.

I am currently with IBM, and quite satisfied with Policy, facilities and Work environment. But after working for last one year i have completed 6 + yrs of exp and started realsising that I should be a Team lead/Project Leader at this point,so looking for a change.Because in current project there is no positions available for that.
And yes i can't lie that , along with position I want good increment say No of year Exp + 1 lakh per annum.
But its seems that companies want to hire people with as much as posible less increment , and don't want to accept a fact, that changing job for less salary raise is one of the big mistake. No one should do that, I appeared for HR interview of EDS, its seems that company willing to pay much.Let's see

But on other side do you have any idea about openenss in working culture of EDS, like in IBM everything is easy go..there are work -life balance, atleast they try to achieve this along with strict dead lines.
What about EDS ?
please advice.

Definitely EDS will be better than IBM interms of work culture and pay. EDS can pay you No of year Exp + 1 lakh per annum or more than that also.

Regarding designation Team Lead/Project Lead that you need to proof yourself in interview that you are worth of getting that designation. For 6+ yrs exp you should get Team Lead or Project Lead at least by designation. But when you are going that position it is not adviasable changing companies too early. As a Project Lead you need to make happy your team as well your manager. So the pressure will be more.

Its true. HR may want to give as less increment as possible. If you are desperate for change of job you will get less increment. Otherwise you can bargain well and get good increment.

One of my friend moved to EDS, Chennai from IBM, Bangalore. He is very happy with the EDS than IBM. Attrition rate is less in EDS as compare to other companies as employees are happy with EDS.

But i heard that work pressure is more, manager use stand on you head, browsing can be treated as negligence and no work.
They want to pack your scheduled as pack as possible.
The culture i would be giving to my team , with less pressure but more responsible, and good friendly open environment, with lots of team spirit.
If a person wants to take half day off he don't have tell lie, only thing he needs to take care is work ahould not get affected.

Is these things are in EDS ?

Sorry I didnt here such news about EDS. I guess this kind of culture you will find in some of Indian companies but not in MNCs. But if you have heard such news please cross check before joining. As of me didnt heard such things about EDS.

Good Luck

Ask for at least 8-10L/p.a. if you have 6 years exp, and considering EDS. I have also heard good things about EDS, don't know anyone there though.

Yes EDS can give 8-10L per annum for 6+ yrs exp. But most of the time your sal in new company will be fixed based on your current sal. Ideally you will get hike from 30 to 50% based on your negotiations.

I have observed hike is generally not more than 25%.As market is good,people change the employer and in next 3 months again change the employer thereby getting the hike what they want.If you are getting 5L/year,new employer will give 6L.and if you change this employer in another 3months,you get 7.5L.
(your resume will be screwed up a little .but thats a different thing).

You skip the company you worked for 6L in the resume. So there is only one change in job in your resume.

Finally I got offer from EDS salary is ok ok, but i think as per experience it is allright.
But I am more worried about work culture and pressure, as I am in IBM ,In IBM work life balance is quite good. Good Planing so that we try to plan things with in working hours. No restriction on learning and browsing chating, so people can work while enjoying.

What about work life balance in EDS ?

I am looking for change because want to work on lead positions, which I am getting in IBM.

Even though I good offer from EDS , but because of income tax there no good raise, so thinking of other factors..

** Work life balance general attitude of people working there
1. Onsite
2. Work pressure
3. management
4. Facility

etc

IMHO, go ahead with EDS offer. After a point, IBM is stagnating and mediocre.
If you want first hand info, go there when office is over and start chatting with someone casually...with 6 yrs exp, some contacts are bound to be there.

I guess you will have all kind opportunities with EDS. But you need to join in EDS keeping in mind long term stay atleast 2 to 3 yrs min. Otherwise you wont get the benifits.

Good Luck

That is true in long term benefit , candidate needs to stay there, infact as i am inot senior postion untill unless I get Manager position, I have to be there.

But I am very use to of open work culture with very less restriction, but with 100% effort, because in some company internet sites are restricted, scanning of desk phone, printouts, strict working hour with restricted holidays, periodic check of office emails. etc.
So I am looking for a person who know about EDS in terms of above.

But I think EDS people don't access javaranch because of restriction or tight schedule!!

That info you can get only from people who are working in EDS. I will try get info from my friend who joined in EDS, Pune recently.

I guess EDS people dont have internet access so they are not accessing javaranch site and not replying to your messages
