To that end I am weighing hiring a project manager. I've mostly hired filipinos for very specific tasks in the past, and compared to say indians I have found them to be quite pleasant to work with, very respectful, honest and appreciative.
Eastern Europeans seem to have more technical talent.
Managers and especially project managers, I'm not sure about. Do you guys have any recommendations from cost effective parts of the world?
I will default to the philippines if given no extra suggestions elsewhere. But I'll also expect to do a bit more hand holding due to their soft temperament and dependent nature.
