Hi all,

Sorry I missed a point. My offer with HP is with HP Global Soft (Formerly Digital Soft) and not HP co.

Thanks.

Hi,

I've an offer with HP chennai for 4.2 and CTS chennai with 3.82 as a Java candidate. I had already posted in this site but still I'm not able to take a final decision.

My current CTC is 3.1. I'm not much bothered about the salary difference in CTS and HP.

I just want to know what is the scope for growth technically in both. I want to have good exposure in varied technologies.

I have 2+ years of experience and can anyone tell me if the pay CTS offers me is worth a change?

Moreover after hearing about HP laying off people in today's papers I'm a bit worried to take up that offer. Can anyone guide me as I've to tell my decision to both the companies in 2 days?

Thanks in Advance

Hi Reddy,

Thanks for your immediate response.

But I'm not able to come to a decision based on your reply as yours supports both.

I enquired with people here and heard that there are only around 90 people working in chennai and they are constructing a branch in chennai only now and they are planning to bring projects from Bangalore.

As I am only a software engineer and want to work in more projects in my career is it advisable to take HP considering the higher pay alone?

Is it worthwhile to shift for a pay of 3.8 when I'm getting 3.1 now?

Basically I'm not money-oriented and I don't want to base my decision on money.

Even I heard that CTS chennai is growing rapidly.

Please consider you in my position and also think in the lines that I may get married in a year or so.

What would your advise be? WHich one to choose?

Hi all,

I've 2+ years experience in Java, J2ee and Struts. I'm currently working with HCl Technologies Ltd. Chennai.

I've an offer with HP Globalsoft for 4.2 lakhs per annum and another for 3.82 from CTS.

I'm really confused as to which offer to take as i don't want to decide based only on the money factor. Moreover I don't have any idea about HP in Chennai and what kind of projects are being taken up here.

I heard from some people that there are not much people employed in Chennai right now?

Can anyone help me as I've to take a decision in a day or two.

Thanks in Advance,

Regards
Shankar
