Any chance for an Indian to become VP of Alibaba?

Sky is not the limit. We’ve already conquered Google and Microsoft. I was an exchange student in Shanghai for half a year. Love it! Best city ever.

CEO is only for Chinese I believe, but VP/SVP is not impossible. I can speak some mandarin, and still learning. I’m 29 now, L6 SDM at AWS. I’m pretty sure I’ll be promoted to L7 next circle. Suppose I will be very fluent in Mandarin in 5 years, and will be L8 at Amazon. Is there a chance for me? I really want to go back to Shanghai. Also, paycheck is fat for upper management at Alibaba. Plus, more growth opportunities. I can help with their Indian business.

    Please be proud after you create a company instead of moving around to serve in other people's companies.

    Becoming even a CEO of microsoft, google still means you are an employee there. The real ownership of a company always remains with majority shareholders, who are either founders or big investors.

    I really hope indians come out of this inferiority complex one day and stop jumping with Satya's, Sundar's examples.

      Why Indians hate Indians? Okay, fine. I know you have GC. That’s why India is still a shitty place because Indians only care about themselves. I don’t plan to stay in US for my whole life anyway. NYC, Bay and Seattle are all sh**holes

      I don’t have GC. Your words are factually incorrect and you sound novice .

      Even the Indians in India are fighting one another. It's not just the ones here with the GC/citizenship vs h1bs. 😑

      Cut them some slack. They are under lot of unconscious inferiority complex due to 1000 years of subjugation. It will hopefully go away in 1 generation.

    L7 SDM under 30? Hmmm.... Not impossible but very unlikely. Maybe a troll post?

      I joined Amazon when I was 22. I transferred from India to US. It’s doable. I have a manager who got promoted from L6 to L7 then to L8 just in 3 years.

    Low, because the core strengths, such as good at importing and managing Indian people and dealing with white coworkers, of Indian managers are not that useful in Chinese companies.
