And now, a few things to be happy about being an Infoscion.

There is no doubt that no company can match the training of Infosys in India. Not even IBM. IBM freshers have to manage for their own accommodation even! TCS, Wipro, L&T Infotech etc may have the same recognition in the IT industry but in my opinion, there is no company which matches Infosys' investment in training.

The brand "Infosys" is so strong that it landed me a new job even in such bad times for the industry. I wouldnt have been able to get such a job if I was sacked from some unknown SME.

MNCs offer higher starting salary than smaller companies. The salary offered by Infosys, TCS etc to freshers can only be reached after atleast 1 yr at smaller companies.

MNCs offer more facilities and incentives than SMEs.

Higher Education Support. Infosys has a looong list of MBA programs that it sponsors at IIMs and other major B-Schools. The list has been recently revised to include almost all the well-known courses offered by reputed B-Schools.

Lesser bond period is another advantage.

This is as much as i could gather. You are welcome to add your own point in comments. If it is good enough, i will include it in the post.

    Hi Chintan!
    I had been to Ahmedabad in te month of Sept-08 fr an interview in IPR(Institute for Plasma Research).... i had cleared ter written test but was not recommended in te interview...

    now am waiting to join Infy in march. i heard tat tey hav made revisions in te training schedule as well as te cut-off percentage to clear each module...

    do u hav any idea bout wot percentage of people frm ECE background clear te training?? do tey fare well in te tests r keep complaining bout te toughness of te training?

  2. Chintan Patel  


    no, that change is not confirmed yet...

    The % of people clearing training from this branch or that branch doesnt matter...

    There are people from mech scoring 5.0 throughout training and people from CS-IT who dont clear training.

    How much is the bond amount in infy if we quit 3-4 months after training?

  5. Chintan Patel  


    LOL... You can just fail in training and avoid paying any bond amount. Infact you will be paid extra 1 month's salary if you do it like that plus leave encashment for leaves that you didnt take.

    Already answered so many times about how to quit during training. Please dig around this blog using site search above.

    i want to leave infosys after the completion of my training at mysore. it is one year bond after training i want to quit before 3-4 months of the completion of bond. do you know around how much of amount will be charged by the company....???

  14. Chintan Patel  


    The bond is of 50k Rs. so you might have to pay that much at most. Also, it depends on what your role means for the company. If you are not on any project, they might relieve you even without bond money and if you are an important member of critical project, they will pressurize you to stay on even if you agree to pay the bond amount to leave.

    how to prepare for the written test for infosys?

  16. Unknown  

    any idea about 2011 batch salary,,,,, what is the real in hand salary after training.

  17. Chintan Patel  


    Salary increases by 10% every year for Infosys freshers and so it would be 3.25 + (10% of 3.25).

    Real in hand salary depends on a lot of factors like hostel rent, ECC membership fees etc which increase every year and so it cant be predicted as accurately.

    I have been selected by infosys recently..
    I wanted to know if the 1yr bond includes the training 4 months or is it 4 months training + 1 yr???
    plz reply as soon as possible as i m getting diff answers..

  21. Chintan Patel  


    The one year bond starts after your training ends and you get posted and it has always been like this. Anyone who has told you that bond starts from the start of training is grossly misinformed.
