Re: American tech needs a paradigm shift
@asksqn- Well, I think it is fair that all sort of ":sms" exist inside corporate America in pockets. I have no doubt sexism, racism, and all sortos of problems exist and we cover them.

But I have to say, I'm not sure I agree with the idea that American companies never hire anyone else. IT unemployment is extremely low in America. There is a general percpetion that we don't have enough IT pros. People I talked to at InformationWeek conference this week all say they are desperate to find qualified candidates from colleges. They are struggling to find them. 

I think this is as much a failure of the American education system as it is a failure of corporate America. Enterprises can't afford to ignore talent for racial or gender reasons.

American tech needs a paradigm shift
Funny how all these American cos. cry about about needing "qualified" employees and yet not one of them wants to train OR hire anyone not male or over 35.  American tech would rather import H1B Visas they can hire at a deep discount, instead.  Meanwhile, the rest of the world, including the Third World, offers apprenticeships to anyone who wants to learn.

Re: Not really surprising results
It is indeed good to see companies helping people find the most competitive positions. The increased exposure will hopefully lead to more companies providing good compensation for their workforce.

I imagine the Gravity Payments reshuffle has helped too, by making $70,000 the new standard salary for employees there. I'd like to see other companies do something similar.

Re: Not really surprising results
Hi, Ahish,

Glassdoor is a great resource. I wrote a blog about the company a few years ago when most people were still unfamiliar with the name. It is really working on getting people useful information so that they will see it as resource for job seekers, making it more attractive to companies who post their jobs there.

Not really surprising results
Dear David/Friends at IW,

The results from this survey are not really surprising to me(atleast personally).

If Tech Companies want to remain at the cutting-edge of Technology they have to hire the Best /Premium Talent(which does'nt exactly come cheap).

In fact I am quite surprised that the Pay Disparity is'nt even more than it is today,simply because most Tech Companies are having to fend with Startups(who are armed with Boatloads of VC Cash today) for The Best Tech Talent.

Another way of looking at it is from the prism of Specialization-These companies do only this stuff(Tech) and do it well.

As the Blog clearly pointed out-Netflix does'nt have Truck drivers for instance and whatever peripheral staff they may have is usually outsourced to the lowest bidder.
