ValleyDiary: Diary of Indian Software Engineers

ValleyDiary: Diary of Indian Software Engineers

Diary of Indian Software Engineers

For quite sometime now I have been contemplating to start a public discussion on what Indian Software Engineers think about the best known Indian companies that are changing the IT services landscape of the world.
These companies have earned a distingusihed record in the business of offshore IT services, in the business of offshore product design & engineering, in the areas of Quality, Processes and Methodologies. Some of you work today for billion dollar Indian IT enterprises that employ 30 to 40 thousand software engineers, and growing.
Every year Nasscom comes out with an impressive annual review of top 20 companies from India that shows impressive double digit growth. We see corporate captains from these companies on top business magazines explaining their achievement and what lies ahead. Let this forum be dedicated to those of you who toil to make this happen. Let this be a forum where you talk about what you feel- your aspirations, frustrations, the things you like, the things you hate, the policies in your company that you like, the ones you hate, the work culture etc.

So, if you work for TCS, Infosys, Wipro, HCL, Cognizant, Patni, Polaris, I-Flex, Larsen & Toubro, ITC Infotech or a MindTree, Sasken, Sonata and the like, please write and share. This is an open forum to express your thoughts. Your thoughts, feelings, suggestions, emotions can shape the future.
This forum is open to CEO's, to VP's to Managers to Software Engineers, HR persons and all others. It does not matter if you are in Bangalore or Silicon Valley, whether you are in Hyderabad or Boston, whether you are in Munich or Sydney- you are welcome. Finally, let us hope we will express but keep this diary 'civil'.
