I was in Yahoo in US and moved to Yahoo in India. I had an offer in Dec 2014 to relocate to the US or take 9 months of salary (3 months of severance, 3 months of tech transfer, 2 months of bonus and 1 month additional that all employees got).
The money part got me out of poverty as I have closed my home loan and on the job front, the world of Data Science and technology opened up.
Instead of being happy of being an IC-5 in Sunnyvale with 180K salary, my Indian salary almost doubled in 1 year and I am doing real Data Science and no ETL Bull Shit. I actually influence my employer's bottom line.
I have worked on Similarity, B-Clustering, Real Poisson's process and Predictive Analytics ... things that could only be a stupid tech pulse papers at Yahoo.
