Let us debate given a choice what is the new generation will choose today amongst the two- Better salary or better role
As many people now changing jobs for a hike of smaller percentage may be as less as 10%, without realizing the impact in the long run....
And yes without any doubts that once on high salary always on high salary, no matter how hard you try in future if you have started on less salary than your peers there are very less chances of you bridging that gap even in the long run.
But then what about the role, will job hopping gives you the chance to learn and perform in a better way??
Read this quick bite on Economic times, where Experts shares their views and debate on the same.
Should you go for a fat salary or a better job role? - ET Slide Shows - Features - The Economic Times

Dear Archana,

Thanks for sharing the article . Here's my observation:
  1. When people start their career , post MBA, they are in a mad rush to increase their salaries. That holds well fundamentally and remains the aim for the next five years.
  2. Few years down the line , they realize the shrinking value additions, Job market freeze as you go higher on the salary bands and the vanishing freedom to try their choice and ideas.
  3. At this juncture, few take a risk and start their own start-ups or take a job in terms of what they want to do and not how much they want to earn.
  4. Whereas other , stay stuck in the system, primarily because they are leveraged. They want to maintain a standard for their family which keeps getting yanked out of their reach with inflation, a home loan that will never allow them to think otherwise in life and many more long term based choices , which eradicate every freedom to choose .
  1. On the other hand , there are these entrepreneurial ones, who primarily wants to run their own venture, hence don't look at comforts but gain and learning in the later years. Its not that all of them are successful and become billionaires, but their takeaway in terms of business understanding and agility are notches higher to the non-risk takers.
  2. They may keep swinging between a venture and joining a firm in a business head role . But primarily they remain independent of the mindset that robs off the freedom of choice in others.

Finally coming back to money and role, the path is always through the natural progression from the former to the later. Whereas it should be the other way round. When a talent acquires the right skill sets through the roles and responsibilities delivered right during the early stages , money becomes a natural consequence.
