Hi all, i got an offer from an Indian MNC . they have offered a designation as Technical Specialist and the pay is 6.55L per annum, i have been asked to join their "mahindra city" office in chennai. could you please advice on the kind of work what "Technical Specialist" do, They are yet to confirm the project i will be put in, so it would be great if you guys can share your views, i have 3 years experience in java/j2ee , im currently with a MNC my current CTC is 4.1
You should ask company people about what the "Technical Specialist" work in their company? In many companies your work is not dependent on your job title. With your experience mostly you will be involving in development and design.
The work, platform, and environment are very specific.
I have learned that the applicant should ask these clearly during the interviews. Otherwise, you will end up undecided on an offer as you would not know which of the offers actually fits your career target.
Technical specialist might be same as a software engineer. Development,design etc..to confirm I suggest you speak to the HR of that company.
All the Best !! Regards Ayub

The position is equivalent to Senior Software Engineer, actually they have two streams. one is management stream there its equivalent to programmer analyst and in the technical stream its Technical specialist
Hi brother.. i think i know which company is offering you... well, i should tell you that the role of a technical specialist is something in which you will not be involved in a project for all the life cycles.. you will be there only for the technical architecture consultancy and then move onto other projects... but what may actually happen inside is like you may end up doing what a software engineer is doing... the pro may be that you may get lof of onsite opportunities.
Stop not till the goal is reached...

Thanks for the reply, i enquired with some of the people working over there, they also said the same thing, The role involves lot of design and coding activities and less of project management work and its equivalent to that of a senior software engineer, this roles grooms the individual to a technical architect
