Hello ranchers,
Any idea about how is the pay in Amazon for 6+ years experienced.

Selection procedure and interview process??

Please share your ideas.

Thanks

Hi Devesh,
Lots of Info, Thanks very much. By the way i got a question my company processed L1 Blanket visa to one of my friend and upon submitting the papers, my company blocked the stamping date for him immedieately.

But for me its H1 B and it took 6 months to get the papers approved and after that my company blocked for a stamping date.

So my friend got visa stamped 4 months earlier than me even though we started the processing at the same time. This is what i wanted to convey on the differences of L1 and H1

Anyway if we get the exact info that is good for all the ranchers.

Thanks

Hi,
For L1 blanket visa's i guess the papers are not sent to USA. The company gives the visa and directly book the appointment for stamping. During visa interview in the embasy they will ask lot of questions and it purely depends upon the person who is interviewing to give the visa.

Once the person clears the interview he gets the visa. I am not saying its is very easy but it is fast as compared to other visa types.

Please correct me if i am wrong.

Hi Karthik,
From your previous post, i understood that you are working for Satyam.

Here are my comments on H1 and L1

1.Usually services companies Like satyam,TCS,Infy,Cognizant will apply for the USA visa after a employee completed 1 year service, I guess this is a rule for L1 visa's. For H1 this is not the case.
2. If we are not from computer science background, then usually these companies will apply for H1. That entirely depends upon the Immigration HR present in the companies. I guess the employee cannot prefer a Visa type (not sure)
3.Mostly all these companies has reduced their H1 visa's
4. In L1 there are 3 different types of Visa's
a.L1 Blanket - No need to get approval from INS(USA) directly go for stamping. Very fast and the criteria is the candidate should have computer science background
b.L1 Individual - Need to be approved from INS will take minimum 6 months to get papers from USA and then stamping 3 or 4 months depending upon where we are getting stamped.
c.L1 Premium - Need to be approved from INS, 1000$ extra charge, but we can know the result within 15 days. It will take the same amount of time as individual L1.
Mostly all these companies go for L1 blanket for all the computer science students.
5. So at a minimum when the company starts processing a Visa (L1/H1) except L1 Blanket it will take minimum 6 months for the papers to get approved from INS and to arrive India. After that, Visa stamping will take another 4 or 5 months. So at a minimum it will take 10 to 12 months.

6. As said earlier in H1 we can change Jobs, but in L1 we cannot

7. Irrespective of the visa types these companies will pay more or less the same money when we are at onsite. So saving depends upon person to person. At a minimum one can easily save 80k to 1.3L on a average per month. This doesn't depends upon the visa type.

So all the best

Hi,
TCS increased their salary at onsite in 2006, but not sure at offshore. Getting 7.2 for 5 years expereinced is great in TCS.

Not sure on Infosys.

Hi Karthick,
No company will raise the salary immedieately when we demand and say that we are having offer at some XYZ company. If this is the case everybody will start doing these things for hike.

So the answer would be "Will increase in the next appraisal cycle". Or If you have visa stamped they may send you onsite. If you dont have Visa, then they will try to initiate the processing. Only these things can happen at the most.

So decide what you want and make use of your existing company or leave for a good offer.

CTS is good for freshers,a It is great deal of luck to get into a good project of our desired technology. They will definetly process visa and send onsite with in the first 1 1/2 years.

The work will be hectic and all depends upon the project

No idea on CITOS, By the way which location the offer is in CTS?

It all depends on the offer and benefits you are getting from those and your long term goals etc etc

I guess it has very few project scope. Mostly migration and maintenance projects. To my knowledge Services companies (Infy,TCS,WIPRO,CTS) will have projects in that.
