The maths doesn't add up

Nov 16, 2018 26 Comments

I see a lot of criticism and hatred towards Indian workers, especially related to work ethics and diligence (all those I will get back to your snarls), but then, how did Manik Gupta (UBER CPO) and Thomas Kurian ( Google Cloud CEO) happen?🤔

      Thanks both of you, I studied British English too and know maths is correct but if you’re talking about us issues and posting in blind which has 90% us users then post in correct English context.

      Well, the op is asking why criticism etc. Using a foreign language in front of a domestic audience is a good way got get criticized.

      It's amazing how you can be triggered by people using the correct spelling for things.
      Colour me surprised.

    It's a bit of jealousy and honestly I see it more from East Asians than white people. It kinda upsets the "Asian people are the smartest" stereotype that many East Asian people seem to base their self-esteem on.

    For the record, Indian Americans are statistically doing better than both Chinese-Americans and Jewish-Americans, who are traditionally seen as the model academic minorities. People might not perceive it that way because you'll find Indian people both at the top and the bottom (taxi driver, small store employee stereotype).

    Basically, when groups that you don't expect to do well are doing well, people suspect foul play. That's how 20th century European anti-Semitism started. The Jewish were seen as nomadic low-life outsiders like the Roma and suddenly they became very prominent in banking etc.

    Most Indians tell me they come to the US to get away from Indian culture. It ruins US companies....

      Clearly. I mean Google, MSFT, Amazon, Oracle, and every other tech company in America are a total mess. Get them out.

    Being a CEO just means you have more money and power (inside your company). That doesn’t mean you are happy or healthy. For many, the latter matters more than the former. The FIRE number for everyone is different. Some people slog all their lives and don’t reach there even after becoming a CEO while some others reach their number in their 30s itself.

      Yes - a lot actually - because I am slogging and have not reached my FIRE number yet. 😩Once I reach there - hopefully in another decade - then I would be happier bcoz I won’t hv to slog everyday at work.

    I think offshore teams 10-15 years ago took a lot of coaching and hand holding to get things done. Really not the case now from recent experience; I work with off shore quite a bit, and there are some really bright, driven people on our teams.

    Well, are we discussing average scenario or best cases? I personally support the criticism for the average, based on my observations.
