That's a very general question and very general response from your friends. Let's get into details, shall we?

All I meant was, we need more information from you. Please take efforts to describe your question in detail so that we can answer it accordingly.

While I was  discussing with my friends about different types of IT industries, like product based and services based companies ,my friends told that in service based industries the work pressure will be more and no hike will be given easily .we will get frustration soon .so is it truth that service based companies will be like that? @Kaustubh

It's not good to generalise things. Frustration is a result of doing something over and over that you don't like to do. I've had the fortune of working for both product and services companies. 

If you are genuinely interested in the work - you'll put in 18 hours a day and still be fresh. If you're asked to do something that is not interesting; you'll get bored in 15 minutes. 

It's essential to understand that there are so many factors involved that you can't actually decide whether a particular job will frustrate you. Frustration is our 'reaction' to the events happening around us. It *can* be controlled.

Work pressure, frustration etc. will depend upon the project you are working on, how your seniors treat you, what deadlines are being followed and how your colleagues are. Then there are other very important factors like how's your personal life; which invariably affects the professional life. 

It's got *NOTHING* to do with the job itself. If you are working on the technology that you are genuinely interested in; you'll automatically ignore everything else. 

If you have no specific interests in any type of work - it doesn't matter. Life's is going to be very similar for you whether you go into product development or IT services. Hope this helps.
