Question
Hi
I am a 26 years indian software professional having 1.5 years experience. Presently I am working with an MNC, which I recently joined. I am getting good package here.

Here is my problem. I was previously working for a small company.i was paid less, but the role was amazing. I was a designed, developer, analyst in that company.
After this, i joined a MNC. Got good salary, good people around, good culture as well. But, the work I was made to do was not that good.it was like half development and more maintenance type.I am not feeling like an engineer here.I am working like a machine except few technical stuffs.switch between works,multitasking, more to follow procedure rather than real developement.

I am really afraid that- I will forget my skills , that i have earned earlier.What to do?I am really not satisfied with the work.

need a helpful answer. i will give any needed information for answering this.Thank you.

Hi shaktikanta
Thank you for your question
It is a great question I discussed on many occasions with my students and colleagues.
I understand you are a 26 years indian software professional. You invested many years to get where you are yo have the knowledge you have.
You as well mention “having 1.5 years experience”. Even though you are young and have this experience you may be aware that in your area things evolve very quickly and new information is released on a daily basis.
In life we have to decide which way to go, it may be related with joining a place where we will be “getting good package” as you said or as well where we are passionate about what we do.

A problem can always be solved if you can find the balance between both parts of what I mentioned
I read carefully what you say: “I was previously working for a small company. I was paid less, but the role was amazing. I was a designer, developer, analyst in that company.”
Why did you decide to change that work?  Ask yourself what where you looking for when you took the decision. Money is important to pay all your bills and expenses and evolve in life as much as feel great integrating Purpose, Vision, Mission and Passion. It is about your own decision and nobody can take it for you.
You say “After this, i joined a MNC. Got good salary, good people around, good culture as well”.
Looks like your expectations were fulfilled! Congratulations
As soon as the work you were requested to do was not that good, since “it was like half development and more maintenance type.”
And very important you said that “I am not feeling like an engineer here. I am working like a machine except few technical stuffs. switch between works, multitasking, more to follow procedure rather than real development.” It is time to ask yourself if this is what you want or not.
My advice is go to your previous post and ask your boss or the company if they want you back and re negotiate a new salary
Or look for a new job paying attention about what you will be requested to do added to the salary you want.

Fear is something to avoid in life as you say “I am really afraid that- I will forget my skills , that i have earned earlier.”
These are the things in life to which we have to pay attention to live a happy and fulfilled life
You say “I am really not satisfied with the work.” So you have to think meditate and make a decision about how to walk forward from the place where you are today.

This is my best advice
