works at 

Infosys

Hey , I have completed an year in Infosys and still have 4 months left for my probation to end . But now I am thinking about doing CDAC and catch a better placement with higher package . Can I take educational leave(If I am eligible) and after CDAC , ask Infy for competitive package or just leave Infosys and focus on CDAC and grab placement in another company. ( average CTC we get after CDAC is 6.5 LPA and current CTC is 3.6 LPA). Please help me in my confusion

    Pros

    Amazing environment, Nice people, Good basic research infrastructure with great potential. You can reap fame and contribute to nation-building by new ideas, write project proposals, request grants and do research.

    Cons

    At the time of my employment, most of us where contract employee. There is minimum guidance as to how to derive and implement ideas or write project proposals that can bring in more funding. The permanent employees are great in general aspects, to the specifics you are on your own.
