Some reports claim that the cost of employing an Indian engineer is just half the cost of hiring a Chinese worker, which means Indians could see their revenue more than double if they came to work in China," it said.
"Some enterprises in Southwest China's Guizhou Province provide convenience for Indian talent in terms of housing, insurance and transportation and could enjoy a much better standard of living in Guizhou cities than in Bangalore," it said.
What a load of bull! No Indian who is really smart is going to stick with a Chinese company for long, at best they will use it to build their resume before moving to the West or taking a better position in India. If you think Indian companies have favouritism, internal politics and dysfunctionality, you will be surprised how much better they are than Chinese companies where besides all the above you have questionable funding, cash flows and payoffs. The Infy drama is a daily affair, except none of the dirty laundry will be washed in public and the common employee will be wondering why they haven't got a raise.
If the thinking is that the Indian engineer can be hired in China at the same salary as he/she is making in India, boy are they in for a surprise! If you need to get an Indian engineer to work in China you better be prepared to pay more than you are paying their Chinese counterpart, because guess what, their cost of living is going to be astronomically higher as an expat.
Best way for Chinese companies to use Indian talent is to set up/purchase outright or fund Western or Indian companies to employ the talent in India, and have software products and services delivered to the Chinese masters. Even a Chinese subsidiary company in India has a rather low glass ceiling with limited career advancement due to its nature and of course language challenge.
