Hi all,

I have been working in Java technologies for over 4 yrs now, primarily in projects for financial services clients.Also, I have been working in somewhat latest tech. like Websphere Portals etc. in Java for last 2 yrs.

I have planned to move from current job in Mumbai to Hyderabad for personal reasons, and have got an offer from a product based firm that is well-known in Hyderabad.They deal with Payroll,employee benefits and HR processing etc.

However, What I want to know from you guys is the following:
a)Is it advisable for me to move from a services domain to a completely prodcuct-oriented domain, and what are the +/- factors?

b) How will be the growth prospects different from product vs services companies?

c)I get a hike of about 45% on my take home salary, I am offered a CTC of 7.5 in this firm, wanted to know if the offer is just average or a very good one, please let me know since I am not aware of the current market trend in Hyderabad.

d)Any other companies that have good people culture and pay more in Hyderabad, I would like to try for those as well..


Any advice/information in this regard is welcome.


Regards
Ravi.

Hi Ravi,

this offer is good. Its how you look at things that makes good or bad. Product based companies are good paymasters. Service based may not pay same. If the company is good then go for it. You can search in this site for more information about a similar post like yours.

All the Best!!

It's good to have experience in Service-based as well as product-based companies. Compared to service-based, onsite opportunities might be less.

c)I get a hike of about 45% on my take home salary, I am offered a CTC of 7.5 in this firm, wanted to know if the offer is just average or a very good one, please let me know since I am not aware of the current market trend in Hyderabad.

That's agood hike, but I think 8+ LPA is normal for people with your level of experience.

d)Any other companies that have good people culture and pay more in Hyderabad, I would like to try for those as well..

Forum policies don't allow this. PM is the best way to discuss.

Any advice/information in this regard is welcome.


Regards
Ravi.

It is best if you can look beyond monetary value alone. Also consider other aspects like brand name of the company, business acumen of the company, type of project, type of role, opportunity to grow within the company, opportunity to learn new things (e,g. technical & soft skills), etc
