Hello All,

First post this...
Me s/w enggr with 2 yrs 3 mnths total exp and all in java/j2ee.
Got no certifications and not interested in giving any.

Looked for a job change 15 days ago and was smothered with offers.
Have many offers but have decided not to go in for Satyam/Wipro..etc or the
Cognizant/Accenture...etc types of companies..
Seriously not 1 of them could tell me the type of work i could get in their companies...

But am seriously thinking of 2 offers.
T-Systems and Sun Microsystems (both at pune).

Could any 1 give me inputs about the 2 companies and the type of work i can expect in pune....

Please i kno both are huge companies and the brand name etc...
am interested specifically in the type of work i can get to do over there..
inputs from ppl working there would be gr8.

T is interesting cos its their RnD centre and only a yr old with around 400 ppl .. don kno about Sun...

also what is normally the renumeration for some1 with my exp.

am getting 5 lacs p.a . how does this compare with the industry and within these companies ( if ppl working there can tell me...).

Thanks in advance

Good to hear that you have got offer from all the big companies.Also the offer from T Systems and Sun is extremely good compared to these shops.
How much you are getting currently ,whether the salary offer is 5 lacs or this is what you are currently getting ?
As far my opinion is concerned I would vote for Sun ,this would give you better brand name as well as you can plan your long term
goals there ,though T Systems is also good but you are going to work only in telecom domain.

Sun will give you better brand name but not sure if they can give you better work in Pune center.

T systems may give you better work.

Where are they in Pune and what have they told you about the kind of work you would be doing?

Glad to see the offers Arthur. I dont know about T Systems. But, we know Sun as the father of Java and all its sibblings.

Sun does core development work like j2sdk development in US and does quality testing, maintanenance and etc in Bangalore ICE.

Anyway you contact the HR/concern regarding your designation and work type.

Best of luck.

Where is Sun in Pune ? Could you tell me the address please ? I am also interested if I decide to change in the future. One of my friends joined in T-Systems recently and he is quite happy with the work culture and also work. I am not aware the salary standards of T-System though.Don't look at it in absolute terms. How much raise did you get over your current salary though. If its 25-30 % or more, you should be pretty happy. In any case the offer is consistent with the general standards in Pune. That's what I think.

Thanks to ppl whu have replied till now...

Ram : i make 3.6 currently. am being offered 5 at these places.
T-systems is the parent company. its a Deutsche Telekom group company
and T mobile is just 1 of their (huge) subsidaries.
So the work in T-systems is not just in the telecom domain.
Even i had a similar idea but this was cleared to me in the interview.
They do Enterprise work in a lot of domains.
u can visit and check out competence areas for more
info. so, is this salary good? (there was no negotiation !! they din
even ask wht i expected)

Manni : ya i kno sun is the father of java and its our dream to work there.
But the problem of these shops in india is tht thy don do core
development here like u said (except a few like adobe,google etc)
and i wont bother much about the brand name if the work aint good.
HR ppl don have a clue of wht goes on with respect to work.
hence the question in this forum.

Varun & Arun : could u please try to find out more about T from ur friends.
about the work and pay..

also sun is setting shop in pune. i gave the interview in mumbai.
i blv its going to be at the ICC in pune. havent yet got the

Yeah,I feel salary is good enough if you are not from IIT,According to my experience in the initial years person should
not concentrate on salary(if he is getting industry standard) and try to foucs on good work and learning new skills
also the domain knowledge is very importent.
Once you get around 5 years of solid experience ,you can ask anything.......any companay would not hesitate
If you are good enough and have required expertise
