I did the Math. If you cut the real estate cost and transportation, the cost of living does make a difference but because of high demand, there’s always shortage of engineers which increases the price. Also, if you adopt similar standard of living as SF then there’s no way Indian engineers can afford it even by Indian standards. However I do agree on my 10x statement being debatable on the basis of quality of engineers, but I believe there’s nothing that can’t be fixed after few months of intense training. You’ve a fair point. Thanks for sharing your thoughts, I appreciate it. :)
