I have to do phone interviews at 8/9 am for people they want to hire in India. Qualcomm and tons of other tech companies are building teams there. They can hire 3-6 people in India with the same cost for one person here. Same thing happened to my friends in Broadcom. Their teams have a group of people in India and that site is growing fast! They have to work extra hours to compete with the cheap labor.
