Re: Seeing the light finally...

Yeah, my company is pulling the "offshore" resource gig. It's funny watching this not work. Not only are they having a hard time connecting, they are butting heads with the data security group opening holes everywhere so they can connect with some crappy ass remote desktop software. Not to mention, it has to be slower than punchcards. Offshore sounds great on paper, but it's not panning out where I work. The real question is, how long will it take them to see the light.

On the flip side, my company just offloaded about 400 of us. We were outsourced to IBM, who picked us up as employees. I have been working for IBM for a few weeks now, and it's working out nicely. Business as usual for now, but I am sure there's something in IBM I can migrate to.

Good, keep the f'ing jobs here so my friends can continue to live well. I swear the US tries to farm out everything, glad this didn't work out.

It was a fad. I'm sure it tot some executives some big bonuses back in its prime and now that it's not working out hopefully they'll get the boot.

Enact the Fair Tax and watch every American business come back home, as well as many offshore businesses.
