When Should the developer switch the company?


Its a time where software developer are switching their company. This article is a small effort to make them understand what they needed for switching. Hope it may help for all the IT guys.

As a developer, first choose the company which works  in your interested domain. One of my friend was much interested in Java, and Android application but now he has joined a company which is working on C# and Python language. Now, he is not working with interest and want to change his job. I know that is very different scenario. It is recommend to change his job and join as a Java developer in some another company.

But what if you are working in the interesting domain language and you want to switch the job.

1. You should have enough basic idea of language which you are working. So, in your company try to work as much as you can (here we are referring to freshers), sit with your seniors and catch the style and skills of them. Most of them will not feed you the tips and tricks of programming language as they themselves have deadlines and pressure. So make sure that you have confidence about the language. Because after switching you will  not be treated as a fresher.

2. When you are switching read the company profiles, its growth, in which aspects they want the employees to work, suitable time and insights visits.

3. See the salary structure you should get 25% to 40% hike on joining the new company.  Every developer focuses more on this point. 

4. Notice the culture of company, its awards, certifications and clients.

5. When you are switching make sure you have completed at least a year as a fresher in the previous company, take this as a personal advise, as a fresher you need to get in technical parts, coding styles and proper testing as developer of a modules.

6. At last do that what you love, programming  is an art and every artist wants to get  appreciation. If you work with passion and love you will get all the things i.e. self satisfaction. While switching keep all this mind.

7. When you are going to switch the company make sure that you are trust worthy with your previous company. Before switching pass the codes, projects, applications, modules to the person who will be assigned after you will leave the company.

8. Explain the database structure, coding style, weak links and way of designing the application to the coming ones before you switch the company. If any web services are used then pass that information to seniors.

9. When you have less time for family as the distance between home and company is very far, then for the sake of family you should think to switch the job. I think we should not mix professional to family. Give time to your parents as they treated you as a prince/princess in your childhood now its our time to treat them like a king in their old age

Hope it will help to the guys who want to switch in coming days. This two months most of the Software developers are eagerly to switch to make their life better.



Hope it may help to you all guys. Best of Luck to our IT boys and girls.

Dear Amatya,

Thanks for the article, the topic and inside content is good, however this article need little refinement. If you can correct the spelling errors and use correct words, this can be one of the best article.

Like "tips and tracks", I feel you mean "tips and tricks", so change it. Similarly, look for other errors also. Add few more topics and explain them properly.

Good luck!
Keep it up!

The 9th point is the diamond word or even more precious than diamond. Everybody should keep that in mind while switching company or opting for onsite or looking for outside country opportunity.

At last time of your life, it matters how much time you spent with your family and how much you and your family enjoyed. $ or Rupees hardly counts.
