Racism by Indian IT Companies in the US

Recent articles in the Indian media¹ ² ³, reported a racism case filed by an ex-employee of Infosys at the US. Though there could be truth to the claim, it is not completely the racist issue as seen today in the West, but it was a constraint put on by their business model. In a way Indian Companies too are victims of certain kind of corporate racism.

  • willing to work beyond 8 hours — usually about 10–14 hours a day, sometimes even on weekends, but still willing to take 8 hours payment;
  • work at flexible hours as these projects usually is executed out of offshore, so the onsite talent should have an overlap time with their offshore counterparts;
  • ready to onboard or off board with a short notice and willingness to relocate to any part of the country — client must respond to his market conditions so there will be project ramp up and ramp downs at any time. The delivery partner should have capability to increase or decrease his talents and move them around anytime the client asks.
