For instance Paytm. Paytm first developed a basic website with feature of mobile recharge only and within this decade they have optimized site, introduced wallets, UPI, coupons and so much that every week its completely different user experience.
Service Based Companies on the other hand deals directly with a client and build a software/app/website for them. For instance a boutique owner comes up to TCS to build a booking website for them and TCS design, develop the site for them. Then, TCS here is providing service here.
2. Salary in Product Based and Service Based Companies
Freshers: As fresher in the IT industry product based companies definitely offer higher package than service based For instance any startup or MNC service based like TCS, Infosys offer around 3.25-4lpa to a fresher where a product based company like Adobe, Lenskart,Amazon,Google have starting package from 10lpa and goes till 25 lpa average.
Experienced: With 4+years experience into the industry everyone wants to join product based companies for better package. So, the service based employees get a management position in these big tech firms to earn from 10lpa to upto 25lpa. But in service based company the maximum growth is 12lpa

Product Based Companies: In Product Based Companies you are kept in one single module of the software. Here you dive deep into the depth of optimization and how things work, but its tough to find similar domain in any other company afterwards. Also, the service based people would be growing from 2lpa to 25 lpa and you might get stuck to see yourself at 25 lpa throughout!
