This study aims to understand the demographic profiles of employees working for Information Technology located in Hyderabad. It is known that, while pitching for projects IT companies boast their employee profiles to garner highest billing rates. As multiple companies pitch for same project, from the client’s end it is imperative to know differentiating factors among employee demographics. We randomly collected data from employees working for 10 IT companies located in Hyderabad city of Telangana state and analyzed demarcation under five demographic factors i.e. gender, age, education qualification, work experience, and annual income. Data were collected by administering 1500 questionnaires to sample respondents and analyzed using Pearson’s Chi-Square test. Results of study indicate that there are differences among the companies. Findings of the study are very helpful to client companies to choose right vendor for development or deployment of their IT technology.
