Sail in ship of ambition and anchor at harbour of success

IIM vs IAS vs Software Engineer

These are facts based on listening to some of experiences of people in these fields .

Well myself am a Software Engineer at Adobe in Bangalore , When you compare this development life , the progress here is difficult , you need to be a very good engineer compare to a moderate engineer and a good communicator in services !! What u get is some components , design and develop and ya u get ur weekends , go be a happy guy witha wife n few kids .

Now you start to trade , and you suddenly feel u r a born “trader” !! You become intrested in finance and think of an MBA In this sector if u join as a fresher u most probably end up being in an ibank where u need to work 16 hrs a day and alternate Saturday’s . You can join them even as a undergraduate but u generally join as a “Analyst” and if u want to become an “Associate” you need a stint with a B-School . Even most of B-School grads retire as a n Associate . Still you are not the “decision” maker . To be the decison maker you need to be an “MD” but most of them retire at Associate level .

Here the crowd is young … n u retire early compared to a Software job .

Now turning to IAS , you are the decison maker !!! You get Authority to drive the projects that change lives of people . But pay is less , but u get the perks . What do u earn for ?? You need to pay House EMI , car EMI etc .. If u get these then is’nt the pay competitive . You join IPS .. you get to ride horses !! the royal life .. After all what does money get you ??You get a power with money ..If that power is given by Authority , its great !!

Dont be in any illusion !! Its ur life u need to decide 🙂

i think ias is a better job then an engineer because after calculating all profits and losses ias is dominating job if we talk about politician then engineers face their own boss who is more khadoos then a poly. and eng. face a lot of competition then an ias

HI, i am a software engineer with more than 2 year of experience in IT currently i am also preparing for IAS kind of examination my target is around 2 years to pass the exam. I think There is no need to tell the procedure for being an IAS or a Software engineer as u can get it from above post. I read from someone’s post that there is less money in IAS than soft.eng. lol..i would like to say being an IAS your one sign will be worth around 50 lakhs moreover if you have some talent than within 20 years you can earn up to 1000 crore that u can’t even imagine with soft.eng. cheers & enjoy..

Hi vaibhav. I wish you all the best for your IAS preparation and may you do well in your examination. The country needs honest people as their leaders who will direct the country with their integrity and values. It’s true though that in a career for IAS there are several ‘opportunities’ for gathering black money, which is just sad and disheartening.

But let’s all hope (the present younger generation of India) that a change will come and people will look beyond personal selfish gains and put their motherland in front of their prejudices.

Jai Hind!!!
