Dudes asking for salaries in India

I really get pissed off when Indian dudes in US ping me asking about salary range in India because they want to move back but start complaining if I tell them that it might be in a bracket of 30-50 LPA. I mean what the fuck are you expecting? The same dudes were earning like 3-6 LPA before they moved to US for MS. And now they are expecting salaries in crores just because they have "foreign returned" tag. I mean, come on, if you have a strong reason to move back, just move back. Finances will take care of themselves. Don't make this only about salary. And if it is just about salary then don't think of moving back in first place. Simple! #mondaygyaan

    I fail to understand what it is that is annoying you.
    What is wrong with going back to India and expecting a comparable salary (atleast quality of life wise) to what we make in US ?

    If you are doing the same work in India, id say 30-50 LPA is a bargain for the Employer! And you are not doing your fellow Indians (or yourself for that matter) any favors with posts like this. Nobody knows when your H1B renewal will go into RFE / reject - at which point one has no option but to move back to Indian.. and why should your employer short change you just because of a shitty immigration system that antagonizes you for being on an H1B visa - and at the same time refuses to fix the laws and policies that keep Indians in decade long green-card back logs.

      If you are working for Google India and if you decide to move to US then you should receive the exact same salary by the same logic applied in reverse. Now stop being stupid and understand the rationale. Get it?

      Youโ€™re also completely missing out on teamwork & timezone differences. Say you have 4 engineers on a team working West Coast hours in the same office and one of them want to move back to India - youโ€™re effectively causing butterfly effects on a team that is worth >$1M/annual to the company

    Why donโ€™t you keep your opinion to yourself and just give them the info they need. I hate people giving me unsolicited advice when I ask them salary ranges

  • You missed the point- the more salary they get, the higher dowry they can demand๐Ÿ˜

      Forget dowry, it is difficult to get sutaible arranged marriage alliance in first place. Dowry comes later.

    Donโ€™t see what is the need to be pissed off ....if US return folks drive up the salaries then it benefits you as well right? Why to get upset?

      I am all up for the benefits. I am just annoyed by their cribbing when they themselves were earning 3-4 LPA a while ago. I don't think MS from some state university should boost up their cribbing index so much.

    Disappointed with a 30-50 LPA salary in India. Did I read that correct ? I think I need get back in the greedy-status-hungry-masters-circle. Off-topic but reminds me of that one guy from my batch who got a bmw after graduation. So everyone started aspiring for one as well.

    "i get really pissed when Indian dudes of current generation talk about jobs, govt performance, prices etc. The same dudes grandparents and great grandparents were British slaves. And now they expect entitlement and rights just because they were granted independence"
    Times and situations change and so do expectations. Stop cribbing about it. Start working on increasing your own comp and country's situation instead of bringing others down.

      Parse the answer based on its content and not national origin. And yes I am.

      Exactly! So instead of giving others gyaan and bringing down ppl who're already helping india u should get off your high horse and improve country's situation instead of preaching us the verbal diahrrhea

      Agreed and I am doing it. My point was for original post who thinks people should behave based on his situation and not their situation.

    People have accustomed to a certain lifestyle and probably have financial commitments so thereโ€™s nothing wrong in asking or planning to return based on an expected income. For example, if someone plans to buy a home just after moving back, they need to plan a bit and theyโ€™ll be fucked if they just moved back without considering salaries.

      Nothing wrong in asking . It's the pretentious tone that's problematic.

    I have 10 yrs of exp. Can you tell me which companies pay 30-50? I am thinking of moving back in the next year so will know which companies to target.

      DM me. In general you can target Flipkart, Amazon, Google, VMware, LinkedIn, Walmart, apple, d.e.shaw, tower research, directi, sprinkler, Ola, uber. Tons of options. Why do you want to move back though?

    Why are you getting pissed off? Are you jealous?

    They are not expecting higher salaries just because of foreign tag. You are being judgemental here. They expect that because that is what they have got here. They have become used to that lifestyle. To keep the same lifestyle, what's wrong with higher expectations? Here they get 200k$, so why isn't it reasonable to expect 60 lakh there?

    If they ask you for some advice, why can't you just give out the numbers?
