I'm from India, working for a avionics company (Headquarter at US) since last three years. At start my career I was involved in software development (Matlab/Simulink/C). The work was pretty exciting and challenging for two years.
Now since last year the work is no longer challenging/interesting. Its all about issues/minor bug fixation/support for old/legacy projects.
I'm a good performer and have contributed to a great extent to all project in which I was involved. I also was "Engineer of Year" last year.
My employer is now sending me to US for at-least 6 months, consoling me that I'll learn and get training on new design aspects. These training too will be on legacy projects. And I feel like I'm loosing all my skill-sets.
I am very keen in projects involving C/C++ /Data Structures SW development, which my current organization hardly have any and therefore I'm planning to prepare well and switch to any other reputed firm, which have such kind of projects.
Any suggestion regarding opting for US Travel or switching organization will be appreciated.
