Hello Expert, I am 45 years male and working with one software company since last 13 years (total experience is 20 years) , recently I got the offer from other company (earlier I worked as consultant) at almost 30% hike from my present salary. I know most of the employee from the company as previously I worked with them. The reason for looking the opportunity is I felt that my manager is ignoring me and giving opportunity to others. Please help me to decide n weather I continue with current company or change it? is it right time to change?

Ans: At 45, there are a lot of family responsibilities. I'd think, you need to connect with your current manager and HR team, and understand growth plans for you in the current company. Also, have a direct 1:1 with your manager to learn how does he feel about your performance. If he is trying to ignore you? And if there are any changes you could do. 30% is a decent jump and if you like the project, work culture of the company better than the current company, worth while considering the same. I'd draw a quick chart of pros/cons on staying with the current company and moving to the new company. If the new company offers job stability, it seems attractive option to consider.

Hello Sir,I am Abhishek, age 41, working in an MNC from last six years, as principal design engineer, electrical, in Mumbai.I am a resident of Pune with my family settled there.I have 18 years of experience in electrical design and PLC (programmable logic controller) automation industry.But due to office politics and partial behaviour from management, I am dead in my career.I am also getting very less opportunity in PLC automation, hence no new skills additions in my professional area.I tried hard to change my job but couldn't get any. I also discussed with my manager about my goals and wish to work on PLC automation, but didn't get any major opportunities.Recently I have got another opportunity in Pune but will have to travel more to foreign locations. I have to travel in my current job as well but the new company is offering better designation, better salary and better opportunities for me to work with new technologies in PLC automation.However, it is a very small Indian organisation compared to my current MNC I work for.I am in dilemma whether I should take up the new job or not?What is your advice?Thanks,Abhishek
Ans:

Hi Abhishek.

If you read my column, you will realise that during this global pandemic I typically do not advise anyone to change their job.

But your case is different as you are getting to work in your area of interest and will also be able to move to your home town.

Do some more analysis and reference check about this new company and management.

If it's positive, then you can go ahead and take this new opportunity.

Today, Indian companies with good management can offer career opportunities far more exciting than any MNC.

Dear Mayank, Please guide me as to what I should do. I'm working as an HR officer (offrole). I am 30 years old. My salary is below the minimum wage rate. I have been working here since 1.9 years but still have got no increment. I'm a career oriented person. I want to move to the next position. When I was offered this job, it was mentioned I would be taken onroll after 1.5 yr to 2 years. But still there is nothing being done. New people that are being hired on same profile as me are hired on onroll (FTC) with salary higher than mine. Moreover, some HR interns have also been hired and once they are absorbed in the company, they will be on the company’s payroll. An HR intern whom I have trained from A to Z and is a fresher is being offered a regional HR position. This is a position that is higher than mine. I cannot understand why someone like me who has 1.9 years of experience in the company is not even considered. I have got an offer from a pharmaceutical company and I have resigned from my current job. But I'm still confused about whether I should leave this company or not. Please guide me about what to do so that I can grow on my career. In the current company, there is a lot of politics and I'm not able to deal with it. I'm losing my confidence. I want to keep this anonymous. Thank you.
Ans:

You must discuss these concerns you have regarding your career not growing in the same manner as your colleagues with your manager or HR.

If it can be resolved, then continue on your current role.

Else, you can consider the new job after you have done due diligence about the new company and its management.
