Is it bad to work in Indian IT sector?

I have worked in the IT field for the last 6 years and I am the same person who thought I should never go to the IT field.

  1. In each decade, society collects a field and assumes that it is the best way to earn money. Note that I said earn money and not live life.
  2. Really, why do you think you should look for a job? To earn money......! According to India. But that's not true. You need to identify what your real interest is, something that you can create while enjoying it !! And finding this is not easy and you need to work for that from school. Once you do, any field and any job won't

I have worked in the IT field for the last 6 years and I am the same person who thought I should never go to the IT field.

  1. In each decade, society collects a field and assumes that it is the best way to earn money. Note that I said earn money and not live life.
  2. Really, why do you think you should look for a job? To earn money......! According to India. But that's not true. You need to identify what your real interest is, something that you can create while enjoying it !! And finding this is not easy and you need to work for that from school. Once you do, any field and any job won't be bad because you love working.
  3. For all those who said IT is bad, it's because they were pushed to do it just because society and parents told them and those who didn't get a chance to explore themselves.
  4. This decade is banking, government jobs. This will or will not change. But it is you who have to identify your field.

As for me, I realized that I cannot do any other work other than this and this is what suits me and of course as I am continually learning and doing new projects it keeps me excited. So ask yourself the same question and you will get the answer.

Just ignore what everyone says. If everyone in India chooses a field that they love and work for, then there would be millionaires and billionaires in India alone and we have that ability.

It is time for you and this society to change and start thinking. Go for passion or at least for a job that you like and not for money. You will never be happy and you will never live life if you work for money.

Each field as its ups and downs. Then IT has yours. So if he is not interested in IT, the casualties will weaken him and make him babble. If you like it, whatever happens, you will like it.

Well, as I have 4.7 years of experience in software development, I think I am qualified to give an answer. And sorry for my bad English.

One of the harsh truths of the Indian IT industry is that they hire candidates by referral from someone other than their knowledge. I have seen many people who do not give interviews or get a developer position. and they sit on the head of the candidate who deserves it. Here many people join the IT sector because they can earn a lot of money in a much shorter period of time.

I have seen a business analyst (BA) who has about 9 years of experience, has worked in several multinationals and has told a woman about software.

I have seen many people who do not give interviews or get a developer position. and they sit on the head of the candidate who deserves it. Here many people join the IT sector because they can earn a lot of money in a much shorter period of time.

I have seen a business analyst (BA) who has about 9 years of experience, has worked in several multinationals and told a software developer in Hindi (connection banana friendship karo logo se yaha connection hello kaam aate hai Knowledge se kuch Nahi hota hai.) I translate this into English (the girl makes connection and friendship here. Here only connection and friendship matter. Here there is no need to have good knowledge and be a hard worker).

I have seen that those who have less than 1 year of experience in the IT sector open their own company, they have no knowledge of any type of coding. They hire rookies who are very desperate to take a job and offer them a penny or no salary. And put pressure on them to complete the project without giving any training to the candidate. If the candidate does not perform well, they are fired. They only want the result so that the client pays the invoice for their project. They don't care about the structure of the code, they just want the project to be delivered.

Here in the IT sector you will see that the policy is at an all time high on everything including% hike, on site, promotion (to achieve this point you need to follow 4). Here you will see the greatest politician, some were greater than the leaders of the political parties.

As I have seen, very few people are interested in development. Success here depends on your manager. How much you make the manager happy will be a career advancement. Here to go on the site, it does not matter that you have to be very talented. Here, many with very little coding skills have gone to the site. You have to lick managers' boots. I have seen many people who do not have any knowledge. They are not knowledgeable about the basic concept of oops. I've seen TL here who doesn't know what the difference is between passing by value and passing by referral and they are TL leading around 30 team members. IT sector foundation in harsh words is (uppar ki chato niche ki maro). But I have seen very few people who are very good at coding but do not get the position they deserve, they never had a single chance to go to the site. I am not saying that the IT sector is bad. The candidate here should be more focused on their work and eager to learn new technology because every year a new technology is introduced so always be up to date. Again sorry for my bad english

I am a computer engineer with 5 years of experience. I used to earn 5 Lacs per year, but during my 5 years of IT work I have been frustrated. Tight deadlines, unmanageable pressure, sudden unexpected rush tasks, and an average of approx 11 hours of work per day. Have I ever worked until 12 midnight. I felt like I didn't have a family life and when I got home I felt damn tired. I can't even talk to my wife or family members, I would just have dinner, check mail, etc., sleep, and wake up early in the morning with the same routine.

Tired of this, I quit work. I've been home for the last 3

Tired of this, I quit work. I have been at home for the last 3 months. I am trying my experience to start working as a freelancer, but it is difficult to get regular projects up and running.

I receive many calls from work, but since I have now decided that I will not do overtime, I confirm that I want from 10 to 7 hours strictly, without overtime and they say that it is not possible.

I'm not saying the IT industry is bad, but most IT companies are running an outsourcing model in India, they earn in dollars and pay us in rupees, they make thousands of dollars with a developer and exploit the developer.

Working in IT in India is like working in hell. Your entry time is fixed but the exit time is NOT.

I am thinking of changing my domain, any advice is welcome.

Hi everyone.

First of all, I will make it very clear that the points I am going to make here are true for most not all ... we know that "the exception proves the law";) of IT companies.

The IT sector is currently the most popular sector among the young generation (especially engineers) in our country.

Now, why do few (yes, “few” because there are few truly hard-working people in any industry) of IT employees feel bad about the work they are doing?

The answer is:

i) The salary structure and hierarchy of these companies are often unfair. 20% of employees do 80% of the work, but often none of these em

Hi everyone.

First of all, I will make it very clear that the points I am going to make here are true for most not all ... we know that "the exception proves the law";) of IT companies.

The IT sector is currently the most popular sector among the young generation (especially engineers) in our country.

Now, why do few (yes, “few” because there are few truly hard-working people in any industry) of IT employees feel bad about the work they are doing?

The answer is:

i) The salary structure and hierarchy of these companies are often unfair. 20% of employees do 80% of the work, but often none of these employees are among the 20% of employees who get 80% of the money spent by the company to pay their employees.

ii) Those most frustrated are newcomers (2-5 years of experience) and those who are really good at work (so don't have time for nasty office politics). Yes, boot licking occurs in almost every industry, but here, in many cases, it crosses all boundaries. And the worst part is that those boot-licking people will try to disparage hardworking workers with all their might to safeguard their own position. Also, newbies feel worse as they take a huge shock after facing harsh reality for the first time. During our studies, we knew that hard work is the key to success. But here, that job is something else.

That being said, no job, which you are doing honestly, can be bad. Just go ahead, if you feel bad in a particular place.

And always remember the words of Chanakya, which if converted to English, mean: "A king is worshiped only in his own kingdom, but a wise person is worshiped everywhere."

Thanks for reading 🙂

I would say that working in any sector that you don't like is bad.

Most guys come to you because

  1. Engineering: This dialogue of 3 idiots explains it all "5:15 minute for mere janam hua or 5:16 minute for mere abba ne kaha 'mere beta ENGINEER banega'". It roughly translates to "I was born at 5:15 and at 5:16 my dad said 'my son will be an ENGINEER'".
  2. Someone "suggests": Beta IT me jao, aram ki zindagi hai aur bahut paisa bhi hai (Son, get into IT, it's an easy life and you will earn a lot of money).

What these people don't realize is that working in AC does not reduce workload and stress. No f

What these people don't realize is that working in AC does not reduce workload and stress. No field gives you easy money. They get frustrated and then you see these statements like "you can ruin your life by going to the IT industry or falling in love."

If you ask me, I joined my first company on June 16, 2014 as a developer. I had the opportunity to work on various technologies. There was a period when I worked more than 12 hours a day. I have delivered projects with tight deadlines. But I have never repeated it NEVER regretted that decision to join YOU.

The only reason is because I love what I do.

You have something new to learn or a new challenge every day. It doesn't make sense that someone doesn't like it. ;)

I work in IT industry for the last 7 years and I can answer this question in a better way: -

  1. Remember that the IT industry has saved India from the economic crisis; Otherwise, without IT, you won't be able to find any high-paying job. Unlike Western countries, where there are millions of companies available, whether small or large, and everyone will appreciate it, in India you have to think thousands of times before starting any business.
  2. Every private company has pressure. You can see that private banks or the type of jobs that have goals have a lot of pressure. In the IT industry, at least, there are no goals. You will only

  2. Every private company has pressure. You can see that private banks or the type of jobs that have goals have a lot of pressure. In the IT industry, at least, there are no goals. You will only have tight deadlines, which is unavoidable.
  3. Remember that a good manager with bad company is better than a good company with a bad manager. People leave the company because of the project they are assigned and the boss they will be working under. It's a matter of luck.
  4. I am not lucky enough to work with a good boss or potential clients. I have always been assigned a project that is already a disaster. I have many friends who earn well with less work and it is their Destiny.
  5. Indian customers are often freaky and frustrated people who make another life hell. It is better not to work under them. His thought is to make you a slave.
  6. If you can't handle the pressure and still have an interest in IT, go to western countries like the US, Singapore. Don't go to Middle Eastern countries. Your life will be hell.

While I was in college, I thought that coming to this sector would kill my creativity and I will live a dull and boring life with no idea what I am doing. Today, if you read the answers on quora, most of the people who publish them have something negative to say about the culture in these companies and they are not wrong when expressing their observation considering their disappointment at the difference they find in their expectations and reality. .

If you are a college graduating student, first let me congratulate you on your achievement of entering the single digit percentage of our tally.

While I was in college, I thought that coming to this sector would kill my creativity and I will live a dull and boring life with no idea what I am doing. Today, if you read the answers on quora, most of the people who publish them have something negative to say about the culture in these companies and they are not wrong when expressing their observation considering their disappointment at the difference they find in their expectations and reality. .

If you are a college graduate student, let me first congratulate you on your achievement of entering the single-digit percentage of our country's population. You are very lucky that these parents have given you so much education in a place where there are people dying of hunger and poverty.

Another great achievement that you are going to achieve is that you will now be independent and even in an IT job, you will earn enough to have a comfortable life. Keeping a job and earning money for yourself is very respectful. How much comes after.
So let me congratulate you on that as well.

These 2 achievements are enough to dismiss the notion that society has speculated. Things in abundance are never highly valued, ask those who don't get even that.

As for ruining your life by going to YOU ​​or falling in love, I'd only say one word: "hurry."

Yes, it is, if you:

  • they are not trained for the job
  • are not treated fairly by superiors and peers
  • don't enjoy the work you do
  • they are not paid well for the results they produce
  • you are doing the job just for the money, while you actually want to do something else
  • they don't learn something new every day

Now if you go back and re-read all the points, they apply equally well to any job, not just IT jobs, don't they?

My cousin was in India about 1 and a half years ago working in an IT company in Banglore, he was earning 3 lakh per month and that's a lot of money.

From there he moved to the US to join a startup and then in a year he moved to Google, now he makes 12 lakh per month and that's a damn amount of money.

I am an engineer who dropped out and I am self employed, I live in a level 3 city and earn around 1 lakh per month and for that city it is a lot of money.

Don't listen to those idiots who say these things, life is a race, fighting, competition and money makes it easy for you to stay ahead so my advice

These are interest-based questions. You know better about yourself what interests you and what doesn't. Based on that, we make decisions for our careers!

One thing is for sure that the IT industry is for people who have at least some interest in technology, the Internet and programming ...

IT jobs pay well to be sure, but they could become a burden in no time if you're not skilled enough and working just for money ... Otherwise it's a good industry with a lot of exposure and corporate challenges technical (if like challenging yourself) .... In my opinion, whatever

Otherwise it's a good industry with a lot of exposure and corporate challenges technical (if you like to challenge yourself) .... In my opinion, whatever you do, do it well, whatever the industry, we are always happy and satisfied if we do something from memory.

Whoever said that working in IT is as good as doing nothing is totally wrong. At the end of the day, the country is earning taxes on wages paid to employees, which in most cases is money from abroad. This is a true income generation and positive income for the country.

In fact, in my opinion, the most useless jobs are those of all government employees who are nothing more than useless cost centers.

Anyone who puts money in the nation's purse is undoubtedly the most useful to the country. It doesn't matter what level of work you do.
