That gibes with my experience with Infosys. They have some talented people working for them, but they’ve got others who barely have a pulse. The whole offshoring paradigm has to have been a major disappointment for those companies that thought they’d save millions. But it’s been a boon for India, which has built its economic infrastructure on American dollars in the last 20 years.
Why would the hire someone from India who can’t do the job? What does the company gain by hiring them. There are plenty of people here already who do not know what they are doing that are will and able to not do the job. There are plenty who know they do not know what they are doing and would be willing to work for less.
