Are Big Companies really paying Higher Salaries to Java developers?

paywatch_article_jan20171
Larger the company, higher they pay. This has been the understanding of most of the IT professionals and their families. It has also refrained many from following their heart and joining a small or a medium size company. But is it really the way people think? Or are IT professionals giving it to that peer-pressure that is merely based on an assumption? This was the next big question that some Java developers put to us after reading our last month’s article on  (Who pays more to IT professionals? Product Vs. Service Companies).

So here we are!

Team Paywatch brings you the truth behind this assumption. This month also, Team Paywatch has enhanced the Paywatch Special 2016 edition with the comparison between the average salaries offered to Java developers by Very Small Companies, Small Companies, Medium-size Companies, Large Companies and Very Large Companies in Pune. We hope that this will help you make an informed choice.

Paywatch Comparison of Average Salaries offered to Java Developers in Pune based on size of the companies – Methodology

Team Paywatch studied the latest figures related to salaries paid to Java developers of various experience-ranges by each company in Pune. Our analysis is based on the current salaries (CTC) of the candidates, and their respective companies (source: job portals). The study involved identifying Very Small Companies, Small Companies, Medium-size Companies, Large Companies and Very Large Companies based on the number of employees (source: LinkedIn). We segregated the current CTC of candidates in these five categories and plotted the average pay for each experience range in a graph below. This graph is also added to the main technology page of Java in Paywatch Special 2016. Please note that this graph consists of the salaries of Java developers from only those IT companies in Pune, for which we were able to identify the size of the companies in terms of manpower.

We have enhanced the pages for Java with the addition of candlestick graphs that show you the salary distribution of companies.
