Indians hire Indians

I see a lot of teams where managers are Indians and they interview only Indians and hire Indians (even bring them from oversees on h1bs).
I don’t really believable they can’t find candidates here, on site.

So,

Is it because they’re cheaper?

Indians are racist?

Indian brotherhood?

Is it a good thing at all?

What about diversity as every single FANG says about it but hires 90% of workforce in Asia?

PS a friend of mine had a problem in one of the biggest IT companies here in the bay where the whole his team regularly was speaking on one of an Indian dialect when he was in their circle, which is not an appropriate culture, so he decides to leave. His manager was an Indian guy.

🍿

Peace.

    Well my experience has been quite the opposite. I have always felt some hostility when interviewed by fellow Indians. Almost as if they are wanting to prove something. Have had much better experience with interviewers from other ethnicities. This experience has been consistent across FAANG and non FAANG. And if you come from a top school, they always want to ask you much harder questions than otherwise.

      Yes. As an Indian, I've cleared higher % interviews with non Indians. Indian people in big companies are super careful not to be tagged this way, so everyone's really careful.

      But if 9 of 12 candidates happen to be Indians...

      This happened to me a couple of days back @Microsoft. I was asked a difficult question that I solved in 30 mins as opposed to 45 mins and the interviewer screwed my next 15 mins for the way I declared a variable. The same interviewer asked a verify Palindrome question to the next person (white guy) who happened to be my friend. Such hate 😂

    Indians hate Indians in my experience. With these many cultures, languages and beliefs it’s so hard to get national level unity. Although, I have definitely seen state/province level favoritism- specially with Telugu people.

    Lots of startups and teams will only hire white dudes that went to the name school as they did.

    There is a bias that you have to counter, and until you’re challenged with it not much will change. “Cultural fit”. People will tend towards hiring people that look like themselves.

      I know some startups that would take issue with that statement, that really made an effort to hire a diverse and international workforce. They sourced white dudes from Western Europe all the way to Eastern Europe.

    Are they cheaper? Not always.
    Indian brotherhood. Yes always.
    Good thing? No
    Diversity? My a$$
    Diversity and Inclusion? My a$$

    Here at my workplace I see Indian VPs with Indian directors, Indian managers, and Indian subordinates.

    Don’t you see the big picture? There are teams that are 100% Indian and some teams that only have men only. Indians look out for each other.

    Talk about diversity and inclusion crap that the company likes to brag about to the public.

    Neoliberals want more of that everywhere under the guise of multiculturalism......reality is you end up with tribal rivalry which reinforces the us vs them mentality.

    But there is one tribe really benefitting from all of this

    Part of 3rd world mentality....hyper competition over finite resources in India and China, so nepotism, tribalism, sexism, racism is strong.

    Definitely is the case and FANG companies understands it so well they built it into their interview panel selection.

    My Google panel contains 1 Indian dude, 1 white lady, and a Chinese lady. Very diverse.

    My experience has been very different. I'm in ML and find very high Chinese concentration in ML teams in Microsoft, Google, Facebook.
    Eg one org under a Chinese partner is almost 90% Chinese in Microsoft. Left that team and company recently, only to land in another ML team that's 60% Chinese and growing in Google.

    Yet another racist Indian post.

    You see an Indian hire an Indian and assume it's because racism. Maybe there's just more Indian devs.
