I am working for a small MNC (60 employees in india) which is in the field of datawarehousing.
It is into niche technologies and the work is really good and challenging.
Work culture is excellent, 9-6 job no over working like some of the indian s/w companies. Salary is also excellent, I am getting 12 Lacs PA with 5 years of experience. So our company pays well all levels of the hierarchy
So I have just described a dream job that any s/w engineer can think of!
But there is a small problem: The company expects exemplary performance from its employees, high amounts of initiatives and drive, not waiting for an opportunity but making new opportunities etc.
So this means that the company constantly reviews employees and people who they think dont fit the bill and asked to leave immediately!
Another funny thing, employees don't leave our company(why would they with such gr8 salary and work culture!) but the company leaves its employees!
Already they have let go some 20 people at different times during the past 2 years! Thats a huge number for a company of our size.
I have just been offered a job with a large MNC over 50000 employees across the globe. The salary is 20% lower than my existing salary! (10 lacs PA)
Although I am doing pretty well in my current company, I am not very sure if I am performing up to the mark. So I am confused now whether I should take this offer at the large company or not.
Positives of joining large company:
Job security, I can relax and stay there for another 5 years
Negatives of joining large company:
A pay cut almost 15,000 Rs per month:no:
But my fear is if I let go this opportunity of joining the big company..say 6 months down the line my current company may fire me and then I wont be able to get even 8 lacs. Even if I get it might not be a company that I like.
Please advise guys! What would you do if you were in my situation?
