  • The Philippines is about Telephone services, selling any stuff, disturbing anyone's calling and offering products. They hired filipinos that the course is not even related to the position, It is simple because their job is just about just to sell, call and call and sell that's it!

    While Ukraine IT outsource is about Engineering, developing more convenient and latest technologies, which a teacher can't do.
    And Ukraine has less unemployment rate, they have 1.9% unemployed, everyone has a job. If to talk about 'work environment' well I honestly would say that Ukraine has very good working environment, the place is clean, things in the office are complete, everyone treated equally, no matter what you are, an ordinary worker would address his boss just by name, unlike in Philippines if you talked to the Manager and you are just a worker you should pay too much respect by calling Sir,Mam sounds like you have to kiss their foot, or else you'll get to be fired at work if you just mistakenly call them by names without saying 'Sir/Madam Smith!
    Ukrainians are very loyal to their job, hard working, honest and they are mentally quick, always have new ideas, and they don't tend to keep longer in job if, you give them a very simple task! They always love a challenging work, they love to learn more and more with latest technologies, no matter what the price even small pay as long as trained them the most updated technologies, because even you will pay them 25 dollars an hour they will still resign if the work is not longer challenging to them. I know the behaviors of Ukrainians because I am with them for around 15 years.They are very hospitable and humble, they work hard and at the same time studying in University taking lots of courses. Most of Ukrainian work in the office for more than the hours they required to do, just they are workaholics.Most of them arrive in the office at 7 am and ended even up to 10 pm, and when they are delayed with work they even work whole night, and sometimes sleep in the office just to finish the job, they don't want to submit late results.

  • Guys I am a Filipina and call centers in Philippines are everywhere, they are selling blah blah,means more on sales or telemarketing,the agent assigned for inbound and outbound offered products and so on,receiving call or calling anyone abroad to offer products, this is a different thing! In Ukraine my husband is one of the manager in a big company in Kyiv, and we don't have such services, we only have 'local call centers' that mainly used for internal to serve banks,governments, it is used to contact companies to sell units of computers. The Ukraine call center is just served locally means just a call center for internal use in Ukraine, so this is not a call center outsource, In Ukraine we have skilled engineers, IT specialist,Web Developers, that knowledge ranges already for 30 years in IT development.We mainly focused in engineering, improving software technologies,programming and developing, so this is a different thing, we don't sell promotions or so on, This is much different, and the rates are not less than 1USD, we work for a rate of minimum at least 10USD an hour,If our team serve for government then salary ranges from minimum of $1000 a month 40 hours work a week. If work in private company the average salary should not be less than $3000 If managerial then a lot bigger, just really depends to your skills, but this job specifically available for locals. Ukrainian developers earning from $4600 to $6666 a month, we don't have outsource telemarketing!
    This comparison is absolutely different, because Ukrainians are highly professionals, they are not sitting to call abroad to offer products or to sit many hours to wait for a call.They sit to improve new software technologies and sell in the market. And it is wrong to say that they earned less than a dollar an hour, because Ukrainians average rate is 15$ an hour, and they have extra job that gives them $20 an hour, my husband rate from $30 and soon he will climb to $50 an hour.
