Mohandas Pai talks sensibly on fresher salaries and high attrition.

Looks like the ex-Infy bosses are trying to outdo each other in bringing out internal issues.
Wasnt Pai himself the head of HR for 7-8 years that he has been talking about? And did the Infy freshers salary size in accordance with inflation numbers during that time? So he was either part of the cartel or just happy to benfit from it.

But why do IT services companies need smart people? They mainly deal with coding work that can be done by highschool passouts. The Wired magazine recently declared, and I agree with it, that most coding is blue collar job.

IT is the only industry I think where the equivalent of a super-specialist surgeon and a first aid worker have similar educational qualification and job titles, despite having vastly different skills. This is mainly because the skill depends on the person's continuous learning ability, training obtained, and experienced gained.

Just because H1-B visa required 4 year degree, all the body-shopping IT companies kept hiring low quality freshers with BE degree. If a company job required high quality, such companies did pay high and got their high quality freshers.

I don't agree with the cartel concept being at work here. That only works if the number of employers are limited. Not the case here. Brilliant freshers could always find better paying jobs somewhere.

The average fresher salary remain stagnant only due to too much supply of low quality freshers, which could easily satisfy the IT services job requirement.

Though not an IT industry, a lot of start up's which took off well, are now facing the heat. Snapdeal laid off 600.
Here's an extract and link to the news
Quote:
"Over the last 2-3 years, with all the capital coming into the market, the company and the entire industry started making mistakes," said the letter, adding, "We started growing our business much before the right economic model and market fit was figured out."
