All depends on the person, in my previous workplace, I have seen locals also walking away from responsibilities, or even when they broke down machines, quickly run away before someone else finds out (but I found out several times,as it was easy to trace who used certain stuff).....this goes for every Asian lah!.......scared of loosing face, don't want to admit mistakes made.....

I think there are a fair few IT folks replying to this thread, and the outsourcing / foreign talent issue seems to hit pretty much close to home ... but guys, you gotta admit that you're painting in broad strokes ? You'll only get behavioral uniformity if the workforce functioned like industrial line robots.
Anyway, for Falcon, my take is this ... look for a job that you _like_ ... don't worry too much about the salary package at this point in time. I'm guessing you are not saddled with too many fiscal responsibilities yet (eg. pay off car loan, housing loan, credit card debt) ... so find something that you feel you'd enjoy. When going for interviews, ask about corporate culture, whether it's quite informal or stricter (can you call the CEO by his/her first name ?), etc ...
Build your experience, and if you're dedicated and good, the money will come. It may not be with the same company, but at some stage, you will enjoy both your job and pay ... if you went strictly on pay, you may get into a mentality of "if I leave this crappy job, no one will pay me the same amount", or something to that extent.
And a word of advice ... there is nothing wrong with calling yourself a "consultant" in the right context. If you're a software engineer by training, and you can add value to a project on your first day at work, then you are providing the team with consulting services. Just be aware of the experience you've picked up while you were at school, don't shortchange yourself. But don't have an arrogant attitude either ... you're there to both contribute and learn. And this will continue for the next 40 years ...

any idea how much is the starting salary for an analyst in the consulting workforce of Accenture? I heard rumours that it is approx 3.4k. But they work ridiculously long hours for it.
