Are there better teams to work in India in Google office? Do teams get ownership of products here in India?

    Neither . You’re young - go do something risky , adventurous , fun . Build something great and use that energy while you have it to explore yourself and the world.. expand your mind and try many different things . You’ll just stagnate at the big firms with a myopic view of the world and cuffed to the comfort they provide . Don’t do this to yourself.

      That advice is hard to follow in many parts of the world.

      it’s actually much easier to follow now more than ever .. every part of the world is exploding with startups/innovation / opportunity .. i agree it’s definitely more comfortable settling for being a cog in a big firm but one can def do that post an exciting 10 years of choosing life vs FAANG. Get down , get dirty and solve for something really fun at different places .. the energy doesn’t last forever .

      The sentiment is nice but you need to realize why there is a brain drain to the US.

      You're either not from the Indian subcontinent or have been living in the US for a long time.

      If anything , there’s a reverse brain drain whatever than means . Look at all the fintech startups in India , delivery /logistics /any industry you can think of .. hell even agriculture tech ! Fintech is pretty much being led by the India example all over the world .. I know that google pay hired a bunch of early Paytm folks .. just one example of the many I know ..
      if one is capable to get into google as a fresher then they’re capable of forging their career on their terms and may use this opportunity to really grow vs stagnate in a golden handcuff environment where they live in a bubble and know nowt . That’s the context of my suggestion .

      If you're early in your career, go spend 2-3 years at Google, learn how to build things right, get a solid foundation and then go take on something risky - a startup you feel passionate about.

      What Austin said. Much better to get a couple good years under you belt at Google/MS before going to startup. Especially in a country where prestige is big deal like India.

      Now that's a more realistic idea for the Indian landscape @austin83

    Close your eyes and go to Google. Microsoft India will change your career growth from exponential logarithmic. All proprietary shit, worst software engineering practices

      I heard that in India freshers join Google because it is easier to transfer US in sometime. Is there good work and exponential career growth in Google here in India?

    I would say Google, however based on my observations Amazon is best for a fresher, you get to code a lot and work on some good algorithms

      This. Especially in India. Google India pays well and has good perks, yeah but, is super chill.

    Join Google, get one promo and then move to a startup.

    Fresher is just as obnoxious of a word as maths.
