2015 H1B visa rank and the average salary battle

As you might have known, the top 3 H1B visa sponsors in 2015 are Indian Consulting companies (all come from India, again!): Infosys, TCS and Wipro, and these 3 companies have 46277 visas which is 54% of H1B visa quota this year!.

The average salary is about 70k USD per year in the top 3 companies. But wait, what is the average H1B salary for these top american companies? Google has 125k USD and Microsoft has 116k USD, which are 78% and 65% higher than that 70K USD from these Indian Consulting companies. Unfortunately Google only has 3056 H1B visas and Microsoft 3750, which are 10x less than Infosys+TCS+Wipro. What does it mean? If you are a smart guy who can have a job offer from Google or Microsoft (125K or 116K USD on average), you might have to quit Google/Microsoft and choose Infosys, Tata or Wipro for 70K USD: you have 10x less chance for getting a visa in Google or Microsoft!

What a pity for American companies who want true high skilled workers! What a pity for true talented engineers who have to quit Google/MIcrosoft and choose Infosys, TCS and Wipro for a visa!
