Hi all,

I am working in a MNC for the past 3+ years in web technologies (Java/J2EE related) , but my CTC is a meagre 4.5 lakhs pa ONLY

Considering the fact that even freshers are paid around 3 lakhs pa, i feel its high time i have to look for a job change.

My total experience is almost 5.8 years & in another 3 or 4 months, i will be having 6 years expericene.

In my current company, i am working in a support projet so i am not able to learn much

I am now brushing up my technical skills.

I need some advice/ assistance from you people on the following:

1. What will be the level of expectation for one in my experience level?

2. I am really looking for a good salary package (expect atleast 6.5 - 8 lakhs pa)

3. I am ready to locate to Bangalore (currently in Chennai) ONLY.

Considering the above facts, can i hope to get the salary i am expecting in Bangalore ?

Please advise me

Thanks,
Raghu

1. What will be the level of expectation for one in my experience level?


Hard to say. It would depend on the company you are in. Usually, those with 5+ years of experience are expected to show learship qualities in technical and non technical roles.

2. I am really looking for a good salary package (expect atleast 6.5 - 8 lakhs pa)


Possible.

3. I am ready to locate to Bangalore (currently in Chennai) ONLY.


ok.

Considering the above facts, can i hope to get the salary i am expecting in Bangalore ?


You can get it anywhere you want. If you are good technically or show good management skills any salary is possible.

Are you looking for tech / non tech roles ? Provide more information about your background and your post will attract more replies
