    Hi aspirant

    I can definitely understand your dilemma. You should definitely keep the other things in mind too in addition to the salary, before switching your job. these things include work environment, work culture( as you have mentioned), growth opportunities, behaviour of the management with the employees, etc. first do a research of all these things by asking the present employees of the new company.

    Only if you are satisfied and feel that all these things in your new company will be better or atleast equal to your present company, then you should take a decision of switching over to that company. Otherwise as you are comfortable and happy here and if the salary difference is not that much, then you should definitely remain in this company only and not even think about changing your job. I hope you have understood my point and will give this a lot of thought before taking the final decision.

    Good luck for your future

    Hello,

    First of all my suggestion to you will be, dont rush after money in this way! You have mentioned in your post that yoou are very happy with your present company where you are working,and special mention about the good work culture.Now,as because the other company will pay you some extra bucks,will it be reasonable to switch over to another company? The other company where you are thinking of shifting will pay you more,but the work culture may not be good.Then you may repent on your decision.So my advice to you will be,be happy with your present job.Focus on your work so that you can excel and get promotion,and your salary package will automatically be increased.

    Hello,

    No, salary is not the only criteria for switching companies. The following things should also be
    considered,

    1. Companies reputation.
    2. Working environment.
    3. Equal opportunity.
    4. Job recognition.
    5. Grivence addressal.
    6. Performance appraisal.

    Salary plays a very vital role in taking decision but it;s not the only criteria to consider while
    shifting jobs.

    bye,

    If u are getting a fairly good amount of salary in your present job and you enjoy working there i.e you are satisfied with the job then there is no need to change the job unless you gets the same platform in your new job.

    Dear Aspirant,

    congratulations for getting better opportunity of job with high salary.Of course salary is not only the matter to consider to join a job.You should see your designation,job profile,working culture,level of company place of posting etc.

    When you are satisfied with the present job,you must see the above aspects to join the new job.If you find better designation,job profile,place of posting,working culture & prospect,you shoud opt to join the new job otherwise it is better to continue in the present job.

    Thanks & good luck

    I would like to congratulate you for the new job offer offered to you by a multinational company.It is common for experienced and efficient employees to get such job offers.You should definitely look forward to it since it can turn out to be an important milestone in your career.

    Switching of companies is common in the professional sector.Employees switch companies inorder to avail better prospects in terms of salary,better work culture,better growth and also better location.Even few do it due to personal issues.There is no harm in switching,however it should not be done frequently.

    You should judge all the factors before switching to a new company.Moreover,since you are satisfied in the present company,hence analysis of all the factors in the new job should be done properly,otherwise you may have to repent for doing the mistake of opting for this new job offer.

    First of all,do research on the employer or the concerned company.Gather information about the work culture that is prevailing in the company,the working environment and the work pressure.Try to gather information from various sources.If possible try and collect information from the employees of the concerned organization.Also enquire about the growth and the perks or incentives given in the MNC.You should also enquire about the extra official activities especially the recreational activities,health services,etc.

    Then compare all the factors with the present company.If you find that only salary to be the factor which is better in the new company,then it will better to compromise with the high salary and stay in the present company.This is because job satisfaction is a big factor and plays an important role in the upliftment of one's professional career.So you should give preference to job satisfaction and then salary as the parameters to decide whether you should switch or not.

    dear,
    money is most important and we all work for money.but sometimes we take wrong decision to see instant money.
    so consider following thing when you want to change your company

    1-work culture( as you have mentioned),
    2-growth opportunities,
    3-behaviour of the management with the employees
    4-Grivence addressable.
    6-Performance appraisal.

    Sometimes those companies who give more intial is bad for peformance appraisals
    best of luck

    Hi
    The environment says that we all work for money, but then we all know this too that money is not everything. Therefore it is advisable to you that if you're happy with your work culture in your present office and you think that with the present salary there is no financial problem which can occur to you, then you shouldn't switch the company. Instead you should notify about it to the higher authorities of your company that you've been called in a different company and that too with a better package. If you'll do so, then they will also shortlist you for the early promotions.
    Gud luck

    Re: Should better salary be the only criteria for switching company?

    better salary and better work platform is the best choice and your work platform should be in demand in the market this is very important for career growth.. salary is also important to you as we all work for salary and also the work platform should be also in the mind.. don't matter working under less salary if you have a better and demand for the work you do.. you may also get hike in salary in coming years but to get salary with work less in demand is cause of worry... for example if you do a job in SAP module which is high in demand and with less salary initially then your future is bright after you gain experience of 4-5 years you will be earning a lot... salary is secondary issue but the work you do is very important.. whenever you choose a company definitely you should get the idea of work description which is very important in your life and career... its ok to accept the new offer letter that you have got from the MNC on same job work description then go for it because salary hike is good for you as you need some appraisal at your work ....
    it seems that you happy at the present company then its upto you to decide as you should be mature and intelligent in taking decisions.... when there is good work culture that is giving job satisfaction then its fine.. all the best for your future

    Dear friend, it really depends upon you if you want to change your job or not. people out there change their jobs for many reasons. sometimes, people are not happy with their boss, they are not happy with the pay package, they are not happy with the work culture etc. sometimes people have no problems with their present job, but still they change just because they think that, it is the best thing to do. so to answer you question, I feel that first you should decide that if you want to change your job, why do you want to change it? what is the strong reason why you feel that you should change your job? in your case you say that you are happy with the present job, that you love the work culture there. and also I think that the pay package is also not bad. so you are almost 90% or more happy with your present job. now let's see the other point. you may be getting a good salary in the new place, but maybe no good boss, maybe no good work culture; in short maybe you don't get full job satisfaction. well I am not say that that is going to be the case, but its just the worst case scenario. so I feel that if you are happy at the present job, you should only change your job only and if only you think that the work place and the work culture is at least the same or much better than the present one. Good Luck...

    Re: Should better salary be the only criteria for switching company?

    Dear only salary and incentives does not matter to switch from your job because there are so many multinational companies which gives better salary and more facilities to employees than other companies but they takes too much hardcore work from their employees and after being continue in that company till 4-5 years, employees resigns their jobs because of huge work load and more responsibilities provided by company and in that case you will not be able to give enough time to your family and may not enjoy your life like present that is why do not see that face of money and be happy with your current job because if you will work good in present company and company will see your performance well then you may get salary hikes and promotion in this company too and once made image may not be made in any other company that is why new company's atmosphere will not be suitable for you easily and you will not get enough assistance in your work that is why keep your job continue

    All the best

    Re: Should better salary be the only criteria for switching company?

    Dear friends..,

    I think nowadays many employees expected more salary because the money is most important in professional life.

    salary is not the only criteria for switching companies. The following things should also be considered.

    # Companies reputation.
    # Working environment.
    # Work hardness.
    # Equal opportunity.
    # Job recognition.

    If u are getting a fairly good amount of salary in your present job and you enjoy working there i.e
    you are satisfied with the job then there is no need to change the job unless you gets the same platform in your new job.

    So you can definitely join the other company.

    Thanks!!!

    GOOD LUCK...........
