Presently I am working in Company A as a Senior Engineer having exp of 3 years. In Company A the Engineer role is given to guys with less than 2 years of exp, Senior Engineers role are given to guys with 2+ to 4 years of exp. 4+ to 6 will be Analyst, 6+ to 8 will be module Lead and 8+ onward will be managers and so on.
I attended an interview in Company B, according to their policy 1 to 4 years of exp professionals will be a Engineer, more than 4 years of exp professionals will be a Senior Engineer.
Hence, if I join company B then I have to join as an Engineer and they will make me a senior engineer in 2015 (probably based on the role change cycle explained by their HR). They are giving me a salary hike also.
Now my concern is if I join company B, then there will be a demotion in my role from senior engineer to engineer. If I accept this offer then in upcoming days, again when I decide to move on then won't it be questioned that why I moved to a lower role during my switch from company A to company B? What to do ? Totally confused
