1. A friend of mine is employed through an Indian outsourcing consulting firm as a python developer. He knows shit about python. The consulting firm has hired a real python developer in India who actually does my friend's client work.

2. People in H1B are supposed to be paid the same as their peers. Accenture gets around this by creating a separate entity that only hires Indians. They are all underpaid because no American peers to compare with. So they can hire more for less and take away jobs from Americans.

Yes, you are underpaid because of H1Bs. I am on an H1B (not Indian though) and it is ridiculous how much this is abused. Trump is right to clamp down. Sadly genuine cases are also feeling the pinch of the crack down.

Something we internationals know pretty well. The H1b program loopholes have been extremely abused to bring cheap Indian labor to substitute American workers

And sure, there are exceptions, but make no mistake, it’s mostly about bringing cheap India workers, period

This abuse is hurting all of us (except corporations, and Indian people desperate to come to the US even with a shitty salary)

smart

Absolutely you’re paid less. H1B tech workers are paid much less than equivalent American jobs. Consultants know it, corporations know it, it feels like the only people who do not know it is the government who should be enforcing this. Then, because they are paid less, they are billed for less which puts downward pressure on all bill rates and consequently your salary must be lower.

I’ve seen this from three sides, as a consultant, as management and as an independent contractor. It is very real.

Why are US agencies seemingly so reluctant to sponsor visas these days, despite being in the so-called era of remote working and talent shortages? I’m Canadian (relatively easy visa-wise) and it still feels near-impossible to move to the US ever since Tr*mp won. Even big global agencies aren’t really willing to do it. Or have I just not won enough awards/press yet? 😔

Hello! Any women here in an executive role within a FAANG/tech organization? Over the past year I've had interviews with Google, Uber and Amazon/aws- and so far I've always resolved to stay within 'consulting' because I'm unsure if the 'exit' would be the right move for me.
My question is, what is it like being an executive female leader inside a FAANG - and any guidance on moving into a FAANG as an external hired executive.
Thanks & happy friday!
