Why are Chinese students not willing to return to China?

It is worth noting that there are 85,000 H-1B visas (H-1B签证) in the United States this year. As a result, the number of applicants on the application day was overwhelming, reaching more than 170,000. Finally, the US Immigration Bureau used the h1b lottery (h1b抽签) to select 85,000 people. The author said that Chinese students studying for H-1B are the main subjects of Chinese students.

Statistics show that in recent years, the return rate of Chinese students has only been around 36.5%.

In 2013, there was media analysis, and low salary was the primary reason. The data shows that the annual salary of the first job after returning to China is generally not high, of which 36.5% of the annual salary is less than 40,000 yuan, and 67.2% of the annual salary is less than 60,000 yuan.

One international student said that in the case of the integrated circuit industry, freshmen in the top foreign companies in Beijing and Shanghai generally receive 10,000 yuan to 12,000 yuan per month, while in the United States they can get three to five times the salary. More importantly, the gap between the technology of most local companies and foreign countries is even greater, and some high-end talents returning to the country are not good for career development.Why not return to China? Complex human relationships are also major obstacles. Many foreign students believe that staying abroad, feeling lonely with their families, cannot integrate into foreign society, work pressure, but the social environment is good; while returning to the country, although they can reunite with their families, they also have frustrations and family backing, but they cannot adapt to domestic The social competitive environment and complex interpersonal relationships. The following is a real complaint from a Chinese student who told a story who have gone back to China for 3 months and work in the bank: 1) Endless overtime;2) Must flatter the manager;3) Colleagues mostly enter the banking system by relationship, and the intrigue between them is extremely serious;4) The rewards obtained have nothing to do with their own efforts. Those who work hard are often the most bad treated;5) Most of the leaders are laymen, don’t know how to pretend, sometimes they don’t want to install them. If the leader feels that you are better than him, you are dead. Therefore, those who have the ability must pretend to be stupid, and everything must be heard by the leaders. Even a very low-level mistake in the professional eye;6) The decision-making process is basically determined by the leadership, without scientific analysis;7) In short, everything is around the leadership, surrounded by the joys and sorrows of the leaders. In addition, the difference between the Chinese and Western value systems has made it difficult for many returnees to adapt. Environmental pollution and educational rigidity have also received increasing attention from international students. It can be seen from the online posts of some international students.
