This is in relation to the software industry in Australia.
I am noticing a repeated and consistent attitude stemming from Indians towards those of non-Indian background in the industry.
- Favoritism in hiring
- Not helping non Indian background developers from Indian senior engineers
It is simply so obvious and I can't believe this is happening and how they are getting away with it. I work in a large firm and the team managers are showing favoritism in hiring practices. I've never seen an Indian manager hire a non-Indian developer and their teams are pretty much 99% Indian. Other managers have mixed teams.
When I ask an Indian business analyst or more experienced developer for help I am given a usual answer of "figure it out yourself, I'm busy" (in a professional manner of course) but if an Indian developer asks the same thing they drop everything and happily spend upwards of 20-30 minutes explaining things to them. I see this happen literally every day.
I have seen this happen in a few businesses I've worked in.
My question is really how do I navigate such a workplace?
Specifically, are there tips on how to still remain productive despite now being adversely affected? Is it worth complaining to management about?
Disclaimer: Leaving this workplace is very difficult as most industries have been taken over by them and they only hire each other. This is a European company so it is still very mixed but still plagued with this issue.
