Opinion By Raj on Lack of Talent with College Graduates in India.
India in not exception to diversity in pay packages.
An average Indian fresh IT graduate may not get any SALARY at all for his first 6 month.
They are kept working as trainee or even if they get paid, they get around per month 15,000-20,000 Indian Rupees = $200.
Which is not sufficient to afford rental accommodation in metro cities where these companies operate (leaving food expenses apart).
For Accommodation you need to pay 2 months salary as rental advance and upto 1 year advances in some cities like “Bangalore” to start carrier.
They start their career journey in these Indian IT companies, whose savings directly goes to top managerial people’s pockets. Managers are generally not billable by US clients as opposed to the ground level software employee(worker).
On an average for every Indian Engineer in Indian IT company is billable by US client there are three non billable Managers that feeds on Engineers Salary.
Engineers controlled by managers whose task are generally not related to computer by any means say (attendance, compliance logistics etc).
Theses managers often control regulate the workers appraisal process.
Company policies often not liked/understood by Indian Workforce engineer and they (Engineer) often switches to new companies every 1-2-3 years.
That reason Indian companies heads in cheap and surplus labor task force but lack in talent pool (creamy layer) is because of bad managerial policies/decisions often not rrational and related.
That’s why most MNC like HCL are now Employee centric than Managerial centric than his counter parts Infy and TCS India.
