Today Infosys has crossed one billion dollar revenue mark. The company is being praised all over India for this remarkable achievement. Let us take some time to closely examine what this company really is and what lies for it in the future.
Infosys claims to be �Powered by Intellect and Driven by Values�. In reality it�s intellect is nothing but a bunch of half educated Third World graduates and values boils down to prostitution. Each year Infosys hires thousands of graduates from all over India with no educational experience in computers. Most of them see their first computer in life after joining Infosys. The average starting salary is around $500 per month. After joining they go thorough some initial training program and then they are dumped into offshore projects. Once in project they are forced to work like donkeys. India does not have any labor protecting law and Infosys exploits that to the fullest extent. Infosys employees work on an average of 12 hrs a day and 7 days a week but Infosys never bills the client for more than 8 hrs a day and 5 days a week. Naturally no one receives any overtime payment. On an average Infosys employees work for less than 2 dollars an hour. This is less than half the minimum wage in the United States. Naturally greedy American Corporations love Infosys. This is a new form of Slavery for them, as it existed in the cotton fields of Southern States centuries ago.
Now let us consider the values that Infosys boasts so much about. Infosys cheats its clients at every possible opportunity. Since there is a huge shortage of experienced professionals in Infosys, it assigns one experienced consultant to an average of three to four projects and allocates inexperienced trainees for most of the work. Most of the time Infosys bills the client 8 hours a day for all the projects. This way Infosys bills the client 32 hours even though the consultant actually has worked for 12 hours. This practice is as unethical as prostitution. Infosys delivered code is always infested with bugs and sometimes Infosys delivered screen freezes after the transaction is submitted. One might wonder why client tolerates such performance. The truth is all client project managers hate Infosys but they have to keep their mouth shut since company CEO thinks Infosys is saving them lots of money. In absolute dollar term Infosys does save money but if one brings into calculation the productivity loss due to faulty software, Infosys does more damage than the money saved in development. Unfortunately CEOs are so blind by their greed, they fail to observe.
Abraham Lincoln once said �You can fool some people all time and all people some time but you can never fool all people all time�. This applies very much to the future of Infosys. It has been successfully able to fool investors, clients and media for some time by showing its huge campuses, golf course etc but the truth has started to come to light at last. Outsourcing has become the most important political issue in the United States and the jobless recovery has made outsourcing the major target of attack. In Australia Infosys has been recently forced to drastically cut back its outsourcing plan in Telestra account due to political pressure. Similar trend is expected to repeat in the United States. Some of Infosys clients like Morgan Stanley has started cutting back on outsourcing due to poor quality of delivery. The rise of Indian Rupee against US dollar has already reduced Infosys operating margin by around 10 percent over a period of one year. This trend is expected to continue and as the cost of living in India goes up, outsourcing will loose its attraction.
"infy_sucks123" is showing his true immaturity--no doubt he is out of job!
His statement on CEOs--"Unfortunately CEOs are so blind by their greed, they fail to observe" shows he has serious issues.
and you think you guys are not hierarchical? Have you read material on how your president runs your country? Did you hear to the testimony of Rice?
You are now saying just anything to make a case for yourself.
well, first of all thanks for the good criticism. You have made a castle of cards - looks great but baseless.
First, Infy employees dont work like donkeys, they work hard and deliver value. So does Immelt in GE and Gates in MSFT. American workers are so used to 6hrs/day and that too with hundreds of personal obligations. Infosys has some of the best graduates and so many of them have been offered jobs by their client which they decline. I have been through this experience thrice in lasst 5 years.
Second - VALUES. while American corporations have their CEO's salaries at millions of dollars per annum, check the annual salary of Infy CEO. They travel economy class and very down to earth. Your argument of billing more hours than actual is ridiculous. There are numerous process to ensure that this does not happen. You think the American CMM-5 stds are so empty?? No dear, becoming a CMM-5 company is s no joke. Stop shovelling such baseless arguments.
Third, client PM's not being happy. Yes, i have seen lot of junk client PM's threatened and therefore bad mouthing offshore. Best of luck to them. The world is survival of fitest, compete or get lost.
are you nuts? American workers work their asses off. you are shoveling
The indian workers that I have often have to have their work redone. Getting them to work more than 8 hours a day is the challenge.
As far as I am concerned,
Well, I believe truth sometimes is very bitter but truth needs to be told nonetheless. I am an ex Infosys employee and everything I have said is true to the word. Someone from Infy send me an Email threatening lawsuit. I replied I welcome the lawsuit since it will give me a broader platform to unmask Infy(similar to the Phaneesh Murthy scandal) . I do have documented evidence to substantiate all my claims.
Don't blame infy_sucks123. He doesn't understand capitalism. He thinks that all the Infosys employees are "exploited".
What do you think of your poppy-breeding suicide-bomber cousins? Are they exploited too?
Infy_sucks123, when your white pay-masters ask you to do destruction on your own people - Afghans, fellow pakis, etc etc, isn't this exploitation too?
I'd rather be an "exploited" Infosys employee than a worthless paki terrorist who gets his orders from his criminal general who is just a slave of his white masters.
I guess that makes you a slave of a slave!
A word of advice to all India bashers. While I understand that racism is in your blood, let me also remind you that investment and hitech are domains which are mutually exclusive of racism. So why are you wasting time in these areas when you can make a killing (literally) in the KKK?
Enough said on the topic.
