If I join this company right after graduation I would have to sign a bond and pay a fixed amount to be deposited as security measure in case I leave the company before 2 years!
They say they will be providing training and investing time and effort hence these measures. I am not sure how much training I will actually be receiving, however money is not the issue - time is.
I am thinking of going for Post Graduation courses in about a year, which may or may not impact my ability to continue at this company. However, HR is telling me that it would be "suicidal" for anyone's career if they broke this bond.
I have another offer from a company which also requires I sign/pay a bond, but for a period of only 6 months. Unfortunately I am not particularly interested in working for this company.
As of now I want to sign with the former company as they are offering good experience and a better salary than the latter. However I would like to leave the company if I get admitted for a PG Course within a year.
Would breaking the bond truly have disastrous consequences for my career?
