Are the bigger tech companies outsourcing?
I guess not really outsourcing, but trying to shift development out of America and into cheaper countries and get rid of positions in America or other expensive countries.
Anytime someone leaves one of the software teams and we try to get a backfill management just says "we can get an entire team in India for that one American salary". It's getting to the point that in a year or two there's hardly going to be anyone left in the same office that all the product team is in. Are bigger tech companies experiencing the same phenomenon or is this only happening with slower growth smaller tech companies?
I can see expanding to other locations because you just can't find the talent where you are, but for us this is never the case, it's solely about dollars and cents, which seems crazy considering developers are the ones bringing so much value to the business.
