Is changing programming language when switching companies a good idea?
I am working in Wipro Bangalore currently as a Full stack developer for the past 1 year. The stack is dot net core and Angular.
Prior to that, I worked on Java for 6 months as an automation testing engineer (SDET).
I was looking for opportunities and got an offer from Samsung Semiconductor Research for a senior software engineer position. The work will be mostly in C/C++. It is in machine learning domain for mobile devices. So, I find the work to be interesting enough.
Would changing the tech stack will be problem in the future? Is it looked down upon?
I know that learning a programming language is not tough. And I can do that fairly quickly. (1-2 weeks) But amongst my peers at Wipro, there is a notion that changing languages means that you're not very good in it as you'd have lesser experience in it.
What do you guys think of it?
Also does anyone have idea about the work culture there?
I am targeting FAANG after a year or so at Samsung. I've heard Google doesn't care about the programming language. What about the others?
My total compensation is 20L. I'm getting a 60% raise.
Sorry for grammatical errors. I'm on phone and it's a pain. Sigh.
