    My Experience in co-coordinating several outsourcing efforts with ‘the largest IT house in India’ was terrible! They refused to listen to the customer or accept that what the customer wanted was best. Those projects suffered a complete breakdown and the relationship was severed. At no time did the representatives of the Indian company ever give the impression they cared about the work they were doing. Their sales reps just kept talking about how huge they were and how fast they were growing.

    Later, I had the misfortune to work in a company that hired some Indian programmers. As the technical manager I had never seen such bad code. It was indescribable. They kept racing through assigned tasks like it was a race, so fast they used random amounts of indentation per line. In fact, they tended to not un-indent so the code was unreadable. No matter how many times we explained to them what we wanted there was no improvement at all.

    Actually, I really liked some of them, they were great guys personally, just the worst programmers I had ever seen. After this experience I lost my fear of outsourcing. Only the most junior roles will be outsourced.

    As a freelancer, during the last few years i’ve work in quite a number of companies who’s use outsourcing to india, and i’d agree on the faster… But the cheaper and better ?

    Well, if it’s small vb gui applications and such, i’d at least agree on the cheaper…

    But anything more then that, and forget the cheaper, and most definitely the better.

    The problem is not that indians are incompetent or anything like that. The problem is the same thing we’ve all saw during the .com times. The IT industry in india has grown very rapidly, and being a software developer can pay *MANY* more times what you’d get in another job. Result, guess what, there’s only a finite amount of competent and skilled developers, and there a huge influx of people who have no clue and no skills who get in software because it’s where the money is. Result, the very very large majority of developers you’ll find in those outsource companies are *really crap*.

    And to compound that problem, the indians have a culture of ‘Yes, sir’, where they’ll agree to everything, and then do their own thing, and never communicate problems or issues until it’s much too late.
