a)This one is from Mphasis-Mumbai.They said that they have a project in dvelopment in webLogic Portal. They also say that they have plenty of projects in develoment in their Mumbai office in J2EE & Struts.
My question: 1. How is Mphasis- work wise - do they really have development projects?How is teh work culture etc etc..
2.What is weblogic portal? Will I get good coding work in this?
b)Another is from a company which has work in JSF. --I dont know JSF. WIll I get satisfaction in coding while working in JSF?
c)From a small company which works in JBoss - They have a dev proj.Its a small company..But I think being a small company work will be good but still dont know will the work is well planned there or not!
d)From a telecom company which works in J2ME. This is something I dont know.I have all my 3 yrs exp in J2EE.Eager to know new things but will they carry weitage in my resume or not is the question.
e)From Keeda.com - Tehy are into J2EE & Struts..all development projcts --Any idea how is this company?
I am too confused..which one to choose!!! Payscale is same for all these companies.
For me only deciding factor is good work.
So Gurus..what do you think which one is better ..
WebLogic Portal OR JSF OR JBoss OR J2ME OR J2EE Mphasis OR small com OR small com OR Mid size com OR Kreeda.com
Thanks for reading such a long mail.Please help...your help extremely important for me.
when pay is similar, and you don't know any of the technologies involved, look at other things the companies have to offer. Find out their financial data, try to figure out if there's a good basis for the future there (iow, will they be around in 5-10 years). How are their benefits? If one company pays your health insurance and pension fund and the others don't, that may the one to go for. How's the commute. If one is nextdoor to where you live and the others mean several hours in traffic every day, I'd know which to choose (and remember that a long commute costs you in more than just frustration when stuck in traffic, it's expensive too).
Personally I'm not fond at all of Struts, but many others seem to be (or are very good at hiding their feelings about it).
You can check all other benifits, the growth, the manager's characters, and so on before deciding. Since if the manger treates you well, then you know you will be treated well in your work, i.e if they are showing a geniune interest.
Also as Jeroen said, check the financial status, the growth and such things about the company. Also finally it comes down to what you want. In small companies, mostly there will be no structure, you will end up doing all kinds of stuff. But in big companies you will be struck with one kind of work.
Hope you make a right choice.

it's a new Portal server. Noone will have much experience with it as it's not been around long
