I can very well understand this plus you feel like you've escaped from someone's grip!!!

I too hate to agree with the above statement, unfortunately, that's the truth.

Also, from my experience...
- You get to know how to approach each problem systematically
- You'll never be in the blame game, if you've followed the protocol well
But on the contrary, even if one has followed the process well in Indian companies, you're bound to get beaten.

Nothing like that; Once I was being told that, once you quit working in one of the top notch IT Indian company, they'll never hire you again & they are strictest in their policies. When I used to work for them, I saw so many ppl, who'd left them earlier & had joined later. So its all market demands & hunt for talent.

Naturally, that should be the case; But yes, I very well know how the cases are in UK; no doubt US is the best to work for & no wonder its called the land of opportunities. But at the same time, they're the worst to do firing too. Once they sense no use for us, they throw us immediately. 2 weeks is the maximum time required.

Post Re: Job Transition Question

Hello All!
It's been 1 year 2 months I have been here in Bangalore.
I had a choice back then - to choose between the roles.
I chose the American MNC option - after a lot of weighing of the options, and so many to-and-fro mails (PMs to a few bhpians).
And- Here I am!

I would like to Thank all the good people from the bottom of my heart here!
I am glad with what I have opted.

I experience life - very closely as described by you gentlemen, and I was sure of the choice with all the help here ( in addition to the inputs given by my family and friends )

Prologue:
The previous opportunity seeming a bit of a tiff
I followed the cautious mantra, and I passed.
I am clear of all the mistakes I did at that time, (feeling much wiser now! lol)

Situation:
I am in a different vice this time!

Calling my team for help again! (I only got a day or max two days to decide!)

This time, I have two choices with me
[indent]My current position:

>Indian Based (growing) Brand Co.
...
1. China Based MNC
Location- Haryana(On-site. may/may not change as per requirement)
...
2. American MNC
Location- Bangalore (will be more or less fixed-station)
..
^ That's how it was ..

Reasons that you gave- were spot on!

Well, the Chinese MNC was a consideration - but, since I was getting to the "core" here - and from a Manufacturer's camp, I see- it has worked out well!
and- like you mentioned - the Chinese MNC had those advantages.

Thanks for the help and opinions!
We needed to fairly analyse the options - hence getting all positive/negative points on the table was very much required for a fair comparo.

___

There were the guys who helped me upfront!
Some helped me through PMs/calls too!

PAVAN_KADAM, rkbharat, smilyinblue, jkkrishnakj, shashank.A

Thanks a tonne once again to all for help!

Truly helped me take a good decision in life.


Care,

Ace.
