I completed my graduation this year in Bachelor of Computer Applications (BCA) and have been selected in 3 MNC's. All of them are offering a Post Graduation Program + Job, but they do have a bond. I'm a fresher and have no work experience.

Company 1:
Post: Graduate Trainee
Package: 1.6 Lacs annually (Indian Rupees)
Bond: 2 years
Post Graduation Program: MCA (Master of Computer Application), which is of 3 yrs so I'll have to work for atleast 3 yrs with them.

Company 2:
Post: Student
Package/Stipend: 11,500 Monthly (Indian Rupees)
The stipend would be increased every year, 2nd yr - 14000, 3rd - 19000, 4th - 23000
Bond: 4 years
Post Graduation Program: MS(Master of Science)

Company 3:
Post: Junior Trainee Associate
Package: 1.5 Lacs annually (Indian Rupees)
Bond: 4 years
Post Graduation Program: MS(Master of Science)

I want to be a software engineer and I have keen interest in programming. I'm also an Oracle Certified Associate Java SE7 Programmer.

Please advice/suggest me which company should I join? After working for 4 yrs in Company 2, they're going to give me an experience certificate which will show that I was a student over there, but actually we'll be working on real projects like normal employees and we'll have classes on weekends.

Thanks a lot.

I don't think we can decide for you. Company 2 appear to be paying the best. When your 4 years are up, can you explain that your student status didn't mean you were not doing real work?
I agree. Here's the link:
