Fortune – Those who work at Google India speak of a halo effect. Landing a job at Google India is said to increase marriage prospects in a culture where title and income are critical to the practice of arranged matchmaking.

Google says it pays on average about three times the annual salary of a tech services company in India.

Depending on experience, that means $13,000 to $30,000 a year, according to industry watchers, who say that Google engineers with five years of experience make $40,000, and those who have developed a patent can make up to $100,000 – plus stock options, taxi service to and from work, and health insurance that includes a worker’s parents.
