I am looking into hiring an agency to work on long-term development work on a monthly retainer. The cost is about ~$3,700 per "developer seat" month for an "American" firm with local account managers and Indian developers. (There are some project managers and architects in Europe as well). 

I was talking to one of my advisors that told me that $4,000 per developer month could get me a mid-level person in the Ukraine. Now I am thinking I might be overpaying if I pull the trigger with the development company using Indian developers?

Does anyone have some general monthly retainer averages by developer skill level? By country?

If you are using an agency with a monthly retainer model how much are you paying? Where are the developers located?
