IT firms and the Indian market – I come from a non IT and internet background and have been very surprised how arrogant most IT and internet companies in India are. In engineering, even if you worked for the largest company in the industry and your customer was a very small company, you always tried to be flexible, listen to the customers requirement and make changes wherever possible. I remember going to every hardware store in Ajmer searching for a particular type of cable for wiring, after a customer had made a last minute change in location and the cable reel the vendor had bought from Mumbai was not enough. After all, the customer ultimately paid your salaries.
Looks like I am not alone, many other Indian companies face a similar problem. That is why I don’t feel work experience in the biggest IT firms or internet companies helps, the Indian market is very different.
