Silicon Valley about Indians

Recommended Posts

I am quoting verbatim from one of the very popular books about Silicon Valley: 

For the dozens of Indians Theranos employed, the fear of being fired was more than just the dread of losing a paycheck. Most were on H-1B visas and dependent on their continued employment at the company to remain in the country. With a despotic boss like Sunny holding their fates in his hands, it was akin to indentured servitude. Sunny, in fact, had the master-servant mentality common among an older generation of Indian businessmen. Employees were his minions.“

“Sunny had elevated a group of ingratiating Indians to key positions.”

“one of the receiving guys who worked there with him arrived at work in a shiny new Acura. He proudly showed it to John, who complimented him on it. The next day, though, the car had a big dent in it. Someone had hit it in the office parking lot. John found the culprit by checking all the other cars in the lot for signs of a collision. It belonged to one of the Indian consultants Sunny had brought in to help with software development.”

“John confronted the owner when he came outside for a smoke break with his   friends. He denied it even though John had used a tape measure to match the size of the dent on the Acura to the scrape on his car, a trick he’d learned from watching cops do it. John advised his warehouse colleague to report the accident to the police and show them the evidence. That’s when the situation escalated. The Indian software consultants went upstairs to complain to Sunny, who came down in such a fury that his hands were visibly shaking.”

You are making it as if the whole book is about indians..lol. Sunny was the jackass who allowed this culture.

Ms.holmes was way too persuasive and she was able to get away for too long.
