Welcome Rahul !

I have a question :

I am working as a java developer in a small s/w firm .Technology wise here is good scope of learning .Since we are very small team , so it seam to no scope to develop the management skill.Frankly i don't want to be a manager.Since you have good experience in IT .Is there a good scope to be a technical consultant in future?

Hi Sumeet,

There is always scope to learn management, even in really small teams.

The future is always full of possibilities, and if you wish to be a technical consultant you may work towards it by building the required skills & experience.

Thanks
Rahul Goyal

Welcome to CodeRanch!

Yes, (excellent)careers can be made by remaining in technical stream. However, please bear this in mind that at some point of time, you'll need to acquire management skills. Technically, the moment somebody starts reporting you, you are a manager (doesn't matter whether you write code or not). So, yes, if you like, I would highly recommend to stay in technical stream, but make sure that you also gain required (management)skills in time.

Rather, I would say that a developer-turned-manager can manage a developer's team much more efficiently.

Just my two cents.

working in a small company you miss a lot of IT experience than you think like SDLC is never followed properly in small size companies...i have seen big companies exploiting good employees of small company in terms of money on negotiation of big brand names

So in future a small company name may be bad thing in resume and can give you some problems even if you are good at your work

From where did you get to that conclusion? Strange!

Not really. It depends. That is why it is important that when ypu interview with a company, you ask the right questions to assess the organization as well, which many fail to do.

A brand name company may look good on your resume, but you need to get through the interview only if you have the right skills and experience. You can make your resume impressive with your accomplishments and relevant experience.
