I have been working in Software testing fead for 5.5 years and have 16L ctc planning to switch to development is it a good time or how it my past experience help or will be drawback? Any light on this?

I assume that you were working in automation before. In that case your coding experience will surely help you to get into development a lot faster compared to someone who was a manual tester.

Moving into development profile is lot easier in your current organization than switching into this profile in other organization as they seek development experience and won't hire someone with testing experience on the same level.

Before you jump into development, let me ask you WHY? Is it because you feel that you will have better opportunities or better pay?

P.S: Even I started my career in testing and after 4 years in this field I moved to development.


Okay thanks for the suggestion but I hope it's 1 out of 10 cases 😅 open to discuss but even I have the same thought
