My colleague has recently got an offer from TCS (China). He has an experience of 2+ years and working in the same company (150+ strength) since 2 years.
Can any one give some inputs regarding work, work culture, and other things(which we all know )?

The two major reasons are...
1)mitigation of geo-political and vendor concentration risks
2)rising cost of labor in India

There are examples where US companies are acquiring Chinese companies..

I feel Web Servcies, BPEL, BPM, SOA, SSO and other technologies which revolve around new generation architectural platform that encompasses a series of contemporary technologies (both proprietary and vendor-neutral) would be in great demand. The graph is rising but not saturated (will take more time to saturate), and a person with this skill sets would be different from the whole lot. Here I am talking about conceptual knowledge about these technologies.

Hi Rambo Prasad,
The reason is I may be that his/her and I would like to know the information about my salary in the near future,
and I could get a job in these countries in the near future also.



If you are collecting this data for the future then there is a mismatch, as the salaries in discussion are the current salary, but you may reach there at the mentioned position after some XX years and at that time the salary would be different ( + / -).

It is similar to financial planning. If I want to purchase a bike after 5 years and the cost of the bike is 50,000, then I should plan for 50,000 + ((50,000 * 0.06) *5) which is 65,000 (where 6% is inflation)

Personally I would prefer to have a combination of techincal and management. But in my apprsial my manager suggested me to go for an MBA/PMP degree as he feels my management skills are much oustanding then my technical skills.
