Thar pajeets are hired generally for their cost. They are cheap and there's lots of them. So for big projects it's easy to scale. In terms of quality, from my experience, they produce some of the shittiest code I've ever seen.

Have also worked with a few Russian and eastern European programmers. Generally i found them to be highly competent.

Great in theory, if not for the quality part you mentioned. I also noticed they usually cost 100-200% more in hours than in-house, at least until in-house becomes all visa holders and then it gets about even.

We hire tons of Russians and Ukrainians for programming work, but most of them want to stay where they live.

They do remote work or take contracts to write a specific piece of software.

My experience is that larger companies (especially financial) normally hire from India because it is easier for them. Companies like Cognizant and Accenture make it easy to pretend you are hiring large groups useful people since they do everything for you. Russians and Ukrainians seem to mostly be smaller groups and don't have near the US presence for hiring. They rely on someone knowing their skill-set is useful and hiring them, as opposed to just hiring a nameless, faceless group of people. Just my experience though.

Good point, I definitely saw more Indians when I worked in the financial sector.

You're kind of highlighting the difference here too. If you want high quality remote work for rock bottom prices, talk to the Russians and Ukrainians. If you want a shit load of people to fill seats in your office, talk to the Indians and the Chinese.

Ethics, duh! Sand niggers are way more trust worthy than a fucking Russki. It's not like they have a political agenda to conquer the West like Russia!! They're called the religion of peace for a reason.

ETA /s, just in case.

Hacking is limited by the opportunities provided by Microsoft. It's basically just unauthorized people "finding" (inside jobs) the secret doors and radios that Microsoft secretly installs for themselves and their confederates (government, other businesses...the ELITES).

I could EASILY secure any network with secure hardware (design) and OS that is completely incompatible with commercial hardware and software. EZPZ. Government, for SOME reason, doesn't go that route. ALLOWS intrusion.
