..you'd move as much as you possibly can to India." So says Jurgen Rottler, a VP at HP. HP also says a "good high-end programmer in India costs about $20K, or one quarter of his US counterpart." These quotes are from a Forbes article on-line. CAUTION: article contains a particularly unflattering photo of an especially ugly woman, Carly Fiona.
Anyway, it's a race to the bottom among HP, IBM, PwC, EDS, and of course CSC, to see who can throw the most US workers out on the street while undermining the US economy by exploiting cheap Third World labor.
While you're at it, why not move CSC's headquarters to Calcutta on the banks of the Ganges River. Enjoy the view of its lovely brown water while inhaling the intoxicating aroma it exudes. This would be the ideal, the best of all possible worlds, right, Van?
hey i apologize for that rude reply to your 'colored' men post.
i should have known it was a pun
goast told me all about it
how you guys just act like morons
to get others upset
boy you had me fooled
never in a million years would i of guessed you were only acting like a moron, good job keep up the good work
CSC's biggest problem is MONEY. The number one criteria to measure management's success is how well did they perform to budget. Resource managers don't want to buy new computers or provide needed software to employees. The accounts are stagnant because no one can offer new technologies to the clients to get them to buy. How many CSCers do you know that have at least a gig or better CPU. Try buying software. I know making the numbers is important, but we are rapidly falling behind in technology to a point of being useless.
Well as usual you are right the customer IMO is at least half of the blame and I have said that before. We have cut managers I honestly can�t say I have seen any favoritism in that respect. I believe telling the customer we will keep costs down is hurting us. And never saying anything to them about all the hidden costs we expect to slap on them. We also brag about a hug resource pool to draw from and efficient process that allow work force reduction that don�t seem to be picking up the slack. Everything CSC sells sounds good on paper they just don�t seem to deliver what they sell. I think we have 15 years to fix it if that's enough time for us? :-/
You got that right. And it doesn't take years of experience to recognize that fact, either! Log on and try using it once and it should be obvious - even more obvious than the need for a stop-loss order if you're holding the bag on CSC stock. For anyone who neglected to do that while this PoS crashed through $35, and then $32, what are you waiting for? [About twelve more nickels gone today!]
