Currently working in IDC Hyd. Got promoted to L61 in June. My dilemma is should I try to get to L62 and transfer to US or switch company now in India.
Motivation to go to US(Redmond) is to save money for 4-5 years and come back. To get promoted to L62 and then move, I feel overall it will take 1.5~2 years. My joining stocks will also be wiped out next year. Do they to lowball on stocks because there is not much room to negotiate when going on L1 visa?
My current TC is not great. After looking at all the India TC numbers here on blind, I feel jumping ship and getting a good hike here in India is also an option.
If you did either of the above, please guide.
TC: 30 LPA (20 base)
Another thing you might need to seriously consider about moving to US is it is one way from India to US for ~98% ppl. But funny thing is all the people consider themselves they are in that ~2% and will go back to India when they first come to US. But fact is 98 is a bigger number. You want to be here for four years but you will stay here for lifetime and you will find all routes to stay here after couple of years.
Ultimate fact i think is people ( who earn good money and work for big tech companies) are more HAPPY in India than US. But people in US can’t live US for comfort and luxury life but materialistic(not many realize it). You will like 98% live in fools paradise for all the life and it is inevitable. So I suggest you to don’t fall in this trap and seriously consider this before you make a decision to move US. But I know you won’t consider it. Because 98 is a way bigger number than 2 😂
