Before going to new organization always check following points
- Role & criticality to business
Most of time we observe that during interview they selected for different role and after joining there job profile is different so please Check out if your role is interesting, and if it is crucial / inevitable to the business. If it is both, then you have surely struck gold. The more critical role, the less are chances of you getting fired in bad times.
- Financial health of the company
You don’t want to end up with a company which is going down financially and whose future looks flimsy. You may have to look for a job then which may be even more difficult.
- Company’s brand value
Company brand values always add on to your career,Your career prospects depend on how much industry value your employer has. A stint with a company below average market value will land you with similar companies in future.
- Work culture and environment
Most of company have very worst working environment so If work environment is not friendly then it is very difficult to survive ,Ask the interviewer about work practices, celebrations on events or how they pursue ‘employee engagement’. Since this is one thing that can be visually exhibited around, your employer will most probably show off these through photos /videos on the website or during your interaction.
- Salary, perquisites, designation and benefits
Always ensure your In -Hand salary verses your C.T.C. This being the most direct result of your work, you should expect about 25-50 per cent hike on your current salary package. Check out your tax implications and if the new salary structure helps in saving taxes, it is all the better.
- Work-life balance
Work life balance is very important some organization working period is not define you have to work 10-14 hours daily and no weekend holidays so please avoid to join such organization .Will this assignment need you to make lifestyle changes (travel, commute, work timings) and are you prepared for it? If it undesirably alters your lifestyle to a big extent, you should give the offer a second thought.
- Current team/ boss
Ask proactively about the current team, team leader/ boss, a typical work day in the team, and any good practices they follow. This will give you an idea about whether you’ll like working in the team.
- Company’s growth and attrition rate
If attrition rate of company is high then think twice before joining the organizationAsk about company’s growth straightway to the interviewer. The growth can be measured in terms of employee size, increase in revenue/ turnover/ profit. Getting to know about the attrition rate is equally important. You would not want to part of that figure in short term.
- Learning and growth opportunities
Your work experience of five years should not mean one year’s experience repeated five times. Only good learning opportunities ensure exponential growth of your career.
- Transnational opportunity
Job seekers who are evaluating trans-national job opportunities should always do a thorough check on the location, compare the cost of living and evaluate career progression plans for the role, in case they want to come back home in the future.
- Company FeedbackAlways get company feedback from person working there it will be very helpful for your future
