Hello,

I have 2 years exp in IT industry and I am from Chennai. Recently I got an offer for 6.3 LPA from a financial service provider in chennai (FLAGSHIP-PRODUCT-NAME-REMOVED is its flagship product). When I went through the forum I didnot get good inputs about the same company. Also I would be travelling onsite to Canada within one month of joining the company as per the discussion with the technical team there. Please advise whether it would be a right move to switch to that company. My main dilemma is that I am non-billable for more than 3 months in my current company. I am in total confusion now!
-Sathya


[BPS: Please don't try to find ways around our policy of not discussing specific companies by name. Giving the company's address or the name of their flagship products is clearly an attempt to do this. Thank you]

What is making you for confusion? From your description I feel nothing wrong to join the new job. Moreover they are giving good salary for your experience.

Good Luck

Thanks for your response!
But the problem is the Financial service provider wants me to join within 20 days where as my current employer has strictly ruled out that possibility. The current employer has even ruled out the possibility of buying out the notice period. So I had to just leave this offer anyhow thanks guys..

If they are ready to wait for 20 days they can wait for another 10 days. Explain your future employer about your constraints and seek help from them.

Good Luck

No, here the relieving time is 60 days. So there is a huge gap between the expectations and what is actually possible. My current employer is not ready to release me in less than 50 days max... so started trying for some other oppurtunities...

Is it worth loosing a good opportunity because of notice period?
What are the consequences of braking the period?

I think 15-30 days period is okie but anything more than that is just ridiculous to me. :roll:

Sathya ,

How much you need to pay to your current employer ?
In my opinion If you are really interested in the next job , you should pay the same from your pocket or take a loan to pay .Just forget about one month's salary at your next employer ! Anyway , you are going to get great salary and onsite also in short time so that should compensate your losses ..
