I came through Capgemini. My LCA mentioned a pay of 120k. Two weeks before my travel(when all my plans had been finalized), I was told that this is a clerical mistake and they shot down my pay to 73k and filed an amendment. At that time, I had an option to screw my life in India or screw my life in USA. I chose to getting screwed in USA. I was living a more luxurious life in India though.

Don’t feel bad for him. Help him change his job and hook him up to a new gig.

Indian Tech companies pay peanuts even now. Pick any company for that matter. What's your option though? Nothing until you switch. If you ask for a raise you might be quickly replaced by a villager who is ready to work at 10% lesser.

After my masters degree in US, I joined a big 4 firm for 53k. I left the firm as soon as I found that the new hires from my school were paid 70k for the same level. Having an H1b visa is a gift and a curse.

I started at Infosys with 67K. I got promoted twice but my onsite pay wasn't revised until after a year of the fact, both times. When I quit Infy, after 3 years onsite - I was at 74K. Total 7 years at Infy and a rank below Project Manager.

I made 65k when I moved in 2013 for a small company ... didn’t realize how low it was! Realized i was at par with kids 2-3 years out of college in my city! I think it’s okay based on the local market and my peers!
