This is very abstract question. Salary would usually depend on company you are applying. Some companies have pay slabs for positions, while some just give you a flat hike, etc. Usually one should expect a raise of 30% salary hike as reasonable.

What ???

You gotta be kidding us. I know some of my friends, having not more than 3 years of experience, not possessing any of the certifications you mentioned, getting much more than what you are getting now.

I don't understand why you are still there in that company. Either you don't belong to an MNC(but you said you do) or that MNC is just harassing you.

What position are you holding there? Must be a technical lead or something ?

I'd say, you can easily get something between 8-9 lacs per annum.

Best wishes!!

I agree with Ankit and Girish. Well @ Bangalore with 4.5 years of experience and with those certifcations you can claim for 9 lacs and above.

Thanks for your valuable tips... Actually i am working in a PCMMI level 5 company... Please advice me whether it is the right time for me to search the job or after completion of SCEA part 3 will be the right time?
I have 4.5 years of experience... Will my next company accept me as an Enterprise architect? If so what would be my expected salary...
Please tell me what are all the companies will give best pay in chennai and particulary for SCEA.


Thanks in advance.

Getting accepted as an Enterprise architech might be difficult at 4.5 years of experience... but I think you can get a good senior developer role and start contributing towards architecure / internal framework for sometime before becoming an architect... But yes the compensation is significantly below market standards...we hire freshers with no programming skills at a better pay.... But lots of companies offer hike based on your previous salaries except a very few where they have good internal standards and excellent pay/benefits in chennai - like the america's largest online book retailer, the online payment company etc...!

It is highly unlikely that an established company would hire you as an Enterprise Architect with only 4.5 years of experience. As mentioned, you
might be more likely to get offers as senior developer or possibly as a software engineer. Give it a few more years, e.g. 8+, and then you would be in a better position for Enterprise Architect position in an established company.

Keep in mind, for small business or startup company, e.g. less than 100 employees, not older than 2 years, you may be able to capture architect position if you have strong communication (oral/written English) skills and a good attitude.

Good luck!
