    If want to learn different Technologies, stay in India. For Project Management (no technology) / Functional, come to US

    Pros

    1. If want to learn different Technologies, stay in India. 2. If interested only Project Management (no technology) / Functional Role, come to US I have heard from people, life was easy in India and hectic in US for the people who come in US from India.

    Cons

    Nine hours straight job in US 9- 6 pm and after that from 9pm-11pm offshore call ...each day! in USA. No PM will allow you to work in project after you learn a new technology and start work for the first time, even you are good at it. New technology learning and getting a chance to work in project in next to impossible. They will always look for a lead position, like 5 years experienced in that technology who can lead the offshore team. So new technology learning scope in zero. I said, lead the offshore , that means limited opportunity in technology and more on functional role. Salary is extreme low. No work life balance. The managers expects you to sit in the office after 6pm, even you have completed all the works are needed for the day. People comes to work late, around 10:30 am and stays till 7pm each day. Do not get in SLA (Service Level Agreement) project, you will enter in the living Hell !

    Advice to Management

    Please do not kill your employees in SLA projects, please remember we are human too, we need to seep, eat and time off for friends and family. Work is not 200 % life for company profit.
