Frequently asked questions

What is and why do we need

There are thousands of Indian professionals in the US who are employed with small consultancy firms. Most of these professionals work on an H1B Visa.

Everyone who finds themselves working with these staffing firms has a story to tell. Some do not get their paychecks on time, others have their H1B original papers held by their firms and yet others have a certain part of their pay held up to hedge against the employees leaving the firms. This is especially true about the students who pass out of colleges on F1 and get into one of such firms on an H1B.

Professionals working for outsourcing companies like Infosys, Wipro and the like often leave their otherwise cushioned but low paid jobs to join such consultancy firms for a much better paycheck. However, sometimes they find themselves into a rut with so much red tapism going around. is an attempt to provide such software professionals a platform to voice their opinions and experiences so that they can make better and more informed decisions about joining a particular consultancy. Experiences of professionals working for or who have worked with a particular consultancy can immensly help a professional who is in process of making a decision to join the same firm.

Why the name 'Goolti'. Dosen't that mean Telugu?

Its very well known by now that Telugu people in the US are heavily involved in running many consultancy firms. When you hear the term Goolti the first thing that now comes in mind is folks with a consultancy company! Hence, I thought this could be a catchy term for a website which aims at reviews of desi consultancy firms in general.

Please note that, the website name is not intended towards mocking Telugu community or insulting it. There are hundres of consultancy firms which are not run by Telugu people. Those are also intended to be reviewed here. Goolti is just a catchy name so that people remember the name of the website when they want information for or review a Desi consultancy firm.

Please take the Goolti term in the spirit of Humour rather than any mocking or insult.

Are people behind Telugu?

No. I am not Telugu.
