Indecisive about relocating to
Bangalore and applying for a
relocation to Kolkata instead. I am a
fresher who joined at the beginning
of this year (staffed in project) and
my base location is Bangalore,2days wfo. The
primary reason to move to Kolkata
being the cheaper cost of living.
FOMO the life/culture in Bangalore
and job opportunities there, are the
reasons why I haven't asked for a
location change yet. I anyways plan
on moving to Bangalore once I can
afford it. What would be a better
pick?

I just moved out of Bangalore. I will tell you this:
Stay in Kolkata for this job. Save money, invest and buy some assets if you can.
Then next switch onwards move where ever you want.
Bangalore is not cheap. But then any IT city is not.
As for the culture and experience yes you would imbibe a different one in Bangalore.
Nowhere it is written that Bangalore has the best working culture. Yes you have ample opportunities there due to most of the org having offices in Bangalore but you can anyday switch.

You need to decide what matters to you. New location diff culture or saving money. You are a fresher and hence you can explore everything right now. 🙂

All the best for your future.

Nice answer

From career prospective Banglore will be better.. But if Kolkata is near to your home town or you are looking for low cost of living then you can relocate..

I have team members that are constantly checking their smartphones and it drives me crazy.
