What is the salary range for J2EE professional with 7.5 years of experience ? Current role is Project Leader where I am 30% on managerial side and on 70% technical side. My technical expertise are : Struts, Hibernate, Spring, EJB 2.1, Oracle and other databases, Weblogic Clustering, Ant/jUnit/Cactus, JasperReports. I have handled team up to 22 people and have team handling experience of 5 years. I handle client independently. I have exprience of documentation/processes as per CMM5 standards and reporting to higher management.
Prefered target is service based company located in Mumbai/Pune.
The range could be again rather broad, but for this profile I'd say don't accept anything below 14 LPA. Range could be maybe 12LPA to 25 LPA maybe, but again it depends on the role, company and location.
There are lot of variable though - many companies have stock options, variable pay. So you'll need to evaluate that.
