I am been working in a product based company (Chennai, India) as a software developer for past 3 years 4 months. Now I have a situation that company is offering me to choose either of two positions as senior software engineer or team leader.
Please let me know what designation does a candidate of 3 years 4 months have in MNC.
I am confused, if i choose a designation as TL, does it have any problem if i move to any other MNC company, because there i may or may not get the position of TL. If I am offered as SSE in other company, does it effect my growth.
Your role in the project is more important than your designation. In India I do not see much importance for your designation and you might be doing completely different to designation. It is possible a Senior Developer can act as Team Lead based on his capability.
