Deepak, welcome to Javaranch!

I'm not very knowledgeable about mainframe and its current scope, but I certainly know many big banks software uses it, but, however, testing is integral part of software development and every big/small company do some testing. I also know some company who solely in QA field.

If I were you, I'll definitely gone for testing (QA), given above choice.

But its all depend upon your interest and in which filed you want to make career, so do more research and decide.

The company that gives you the best exposure would be the one to choose. A Company's size does not have anything to do with the size of their systems / technology exposure or how well their products scale.
