I have 11 years of Java/j2ee experience and working as tech lead with big consulting company in Toronto,
I am wondering if shall I move to Pega technology ?
my friend is lead architect in Pega and earning over 125$ per hour in Pega and getting very good salary offers and that is tempting me
its almost 3 times we get in Java,
even on conservative side my friend says that you will get 90 to 100$ per hour if you are sr. system architect
in Java I am can get 70 $ max
from long term perspective I can earn more in Pega but what shall I do ?
one option is to be stick to java and think of java architect and tofel
second option I am getting in my current company to switch to Java but I will be working with the lower profile initially with people having 4-5 years of experience. but thats not an issue but thing is I have to start from scratch
I am confused what shall I do with my career
I understand with over 11 years of experience I done few good project but I am not doing very much coding may be 20% is coding rest is leadership but I can get job again in Java if I want to
or stick to Java and be more expert in that ??
I will canadian citizenship next year and I can move to USA on tn visa and get more oppurtunity in Java/Pega both
kindly give your insight thoughts analysis on Pega framework and my current situation
