Hi folks,

Need an advice from you guys. I joined TCS Kolkata as a BPS employee in 2014 and currently I'm in a Finance project working as a Senior Analyst. I have always wanted to be a developer so recently I acquired the knowledge of HTML, CSS, Javascript and Angular. So can I apply for the same in other companies? Or they only want freshers in this segment? As my overall experience is 7+ years but will I be treated as a fresher if I apply for the same?

Product owner role
Airbus vs VMware
Fixed is same in both, Airbus is paying higher variable pay amount and hence higher ctc.

I am also in the middle of interviews with some other firms but for now I have these 2 offers. Which do you think would be right considering WLB, opportunities and hike/growth. If someone from VMware can mention what's happening within the firm with respect to Broadcom acquisition, that will be helpful
