Shivam Singh: I am a tech lead in IT Services. Shall I stick to it or move to lead position in an E commerce start up..which is better for future?
Animesh Sharma: Indian E-Commerce sector is at an accelerating growth at present. And experts believe that this shall continue for next few years before market stabilizes. Learning curve in start-ups is definitely much higher and is being valued in current market scenario. On the other hand, IT-Service is evergreen and there will always be a need for IT-services expert. If you are person of high ambition and want to ride on the great e-comm wave, then I would suggest you to go for E-commerce start-up. But make sure to do proper analysis of risk involved and your appetite for same -Question you should answer before deciding: Is the company well funded? Who are the competitors? Is their model scalable and self-sustainable? What if the company shuts down in 2 year time frame, what is your plan B?
