Got a job in a small company -parents , brother unhappy!!!
First of all, let me tell you that you're in good hands. Once you ask such a question on CE, you will only get good advice from fellow CEans. 👍
So you got a job in a startup. Let me break it in points for you.
I would focus on the positives at first.
Working at a startup -
1. Your ideas, your work, and everything you do everyday adds to building a secure foundation for the startup. You have a large say on your work.
Each individual in the startup is extremely engrossed in owning his or her piece of work.
2. What a startup offers is very rare and often more valuable – a chance to pursue what you love doing working together with some of the most brilliant strong willed people and for some that beats any pay scale any day.
3. Godspeed learning!
A startup is always hungry for more. If learning new skills and taking on challenges on a daily basis is something you are yearning for, you have to look no further.
So, here are a few lines that I read on a blog and I think they will suit here the best. In a startup -
Mentally you are trained like a ninja. Ready to take on any surprise and turn it into a victory. Fighting till the end. That training at a very formative stage is very important in long-term career success. I meet lots of ‘Corporate Suits’ who have no edge of being able to take hits and downsides.
The bottom line is, if nothing written above interests you or drives you, start looking for walk-ins in a MNC. 😀 The perspective changes from person to person.
Choose what suits you best. And keep us informed about your decision.
PS: Feel free to ask more questions.
If it is in your interest and good learning scope then you are on right path, even you have to work hard.
More you learn in first 2-3 years of career more your future will be secured.
By the way: see some reaction about BIG BRANDS
Main thing is you will learn a lot from small company, if they torcher you then I will say it is good for you, if you take it in positive way, the more pressure you will get , the more better you will be
Search on google, How diamond form? same concept applies to humans too
These are my real life observations Don't worry about anyone? It's your life and your decisions.
For parents, I understand they might had some expectations from you, but I am sure if you are really passionate about your work and hard working guy, then you will soon make them realize that you were right
I already told them i wish to work on android but recently i read this post that got me scared https://tizenvsandroid.blogspot.in/ And makes me still worried which fielld to choose?????
In IT no one gonna give you programs like for compute where a no is prime or not ?
You will see real challenges and you have to face them
Did you get the help you are looking for? Feel free to ask more questions/doubts until you think you've the direction.RamannnOK, sorry 😉....
Remember only drop outs built EMPIRES not Scholars
You can Build your own empire That is my opinion A good opportunity for you to not only learn new thing But also develop way beyond others imagination
PS: Thank God you are not a slave in TCS or Infosys Have a great time in your new atmosphere.
Java is also old But the scope for both .net and java is not going to end in atlest 3 years so go for one which intrigues you
Few they told JAVA ...because .Net is OLDOne up for funny quotient!!!😁
wouldn't .net just tie you up with a windows platform?
You are building up your logic and LOGIC is the key everywhere.. You just have to use the syntax of Java or any programming language to use.
For those operations you use google so its nothing wrong in doing that!
Ok , Ramannn: Stop thinking too much and join the company. Give your best in whatever you want to learn. Learn the language dont byheart it..
Trust me , you will not be laid off, even if that happens you will have the skills to get job anywhere.
Why do you have to think of your friend's opinions if they are not helping you and making fun of you?
Trust me, if you join there and learn they will learn your value sooner or later. The key is hardwork as goyal mentioned.

Hey Ramann, working in a small company is nothing to worry about. i read a book by Rashmi Bansal (Stay Hungry Stay Foolish) where she mentions how Sintex became such a big name in India and do you know it was nothing. the person who joined that company was an IIM passout.
