nice topic..but sadly you dont get to choose the salary you want same as you dont get to choose your name when you are born.. as i always say "you dont get everything in life"

p.s i have an attachement, hope it helps to lighten some salary blues..

At least some of us will get better sleep after reading this?
I don't hink it is realistic atleast in IT. But as you said will get a better sleep. They say a DBA get 65K pm max and an IT admin 50 (or so) pm max, which are not the actual figures now. These roles get much more.

We are not discussing individual salaries. There are few companies which offer more for similar skills & experience. We are identifying those companies. As a consequence, when you are looking out for job, you can prefer these companies.

Are you sure the IT admins get such salaries ? I do not think so. It might be me but I am at perfect 180 degree with this view. I have felt the same thing when i was at SAS, when i was at IBM and here in my current organization.

IT Admins don't get paid much. But if you make it to above level 3 support in product companies, you do get good salaries. BY large, big IT brands don't pay anything worth mentioning here, IBM, EDS, Accenture, Infy, TCS, etc.

At the same time, if you are hired by HP, Cap or MS, be sure to have good bank balance. MS for sure takes good care of the employees (not counting bitter exception). I have worked for and with them in different capacities and would love to join them again anyday. They are ethically very strong and have clarity of communication which I find very hard in the companies mentioned in the first para. I currently work for one such giant and heck, I don't even know where we are headed.

In IT, programming and testing is in dumps right now. The field that is really booming is telecom & vlsi design engineers and IT Infrastructure consultant with 6-7 yrs of experience which is non IT Admin experience. I heard from sources that MS pays close to 18-20+ L in HYD for Infra Consultants who have more than 7 yrs of relevant experience. It is similar in other companies as well. So there goes your take. But beware of indian IT companies. Managers there are mostly man-eaters (exceptions expected & accepted).

Yes. Depends on the company, their key role etc. I can say with confidence as I am one .

You have identified the company and have acquired the required skills. Now which is the best channel to approach the company?
  1. Contact HR Consultant & indicate your preference
  2. Direct email to company (careers@xyz.com)
  3. Drop your resume at the company reception
  4. Employee referral
  5. Answer online job site Ad
  6. Answer newspaper ad
  7. Attend walk-ins
  8. Attend job-fairs
Any other?

Which is the best?

Uploading your CV on Naukri, Monster and TimesJobs and waiting for a response. That way they want you, not you want their job.

Linkedin is a nice place to find a new job.

If you have been in a company more than 2 years then think back on all those farewell parties. You already have contacts in different companies with people who know you and your high quality of work.

Nitin - I was not reffering any particular individual's case. I know many guys,friends work as IT admins (sys admins, n/w admins, infra str. Specialist etc) who get more than 50K or 65K. If you ask me I am an IT admin (sys, n/w), not a DBA, and getting slightly above the figure you mentioned if I look at CTC and close to it as take home that too 3 KM away from home, Tvm. I believe if such a person choose to move to a better IT city like Blore, he will get much more, but one cannot choose it always. I mentioned it just to give you an idea. Update yourself well in knowledge, experience and career. Reward will come its way.

Bumping this thread.....

I've heard that IT cos have reduced the starting salary for fresher engineers(non-IIT) due to the IT slowdown. One of my friends told me that the starting salary is in the range of 12-16K for TCS/HCL/Wipro/Infy etc.

Is that true ?
