Indian PSU or Job in USA with MS

HPE / Eng b4u
Jul 29, 2018 25 Comments

Guys I am on a sabbatical from an Indian PSU and doing Masters in US (F1 visa). I worked for 5 yrs and almost 30 now. My fear is I can't struggle for another 5 yrs. Given the kind of job security Indian PSUs offer but with modest pay, what would be a wise choice - join back or stay here with high pay with risk?

      Btw why you want to get out of tech? As I am thinking of going to tech.

      No interest. Constant high pressure work deadlines. Complex problems and need to constantly learn. Could be burn out but i mostly just dont have any passion for it. So yeah if u r trying to get in make sure u have enough passion/interest in it

      You can always try Google etc after working 1 year at some other tech company. But keep trying.

    Dude practice Leetcode religiously and set up 10-12 interviews a month with US tech companies include FAANG, unicorns and other startups/large companies with tech departments. If it fails after 3 months come back to India.

    Why are the options binary? Why not MSFT, Google, etc in India?

    The comparison is between PSU & other companies. My apprehension is can I struggle for another 3-5 years or so

      I am not getting jobs in top companies like Msft, Google etc due to my PSU exp. I am like a new grad now. The pressure of marriage is high now. So with one income it would be tough here. Sorry if I am getting too personal!

      New grad software jobs in the US, in any of the top 20 companies, is more than sufficient for a single income Indian couple in any city in the US. That shouldn't be your concern when you're deciding what you want to do.

      Once you get a tech job in the US, it's easy to switch to India Microsoft, Google etc.
