I think is too low this number.
If there is a trouble with the UK contract then there will be a trouble with their jobs.
Next right step is fire a lot more.
Too many people working in this company, share price it's a half so workers can not be the same.
There is a crisis in the world.
Those are not my words.
If I spoke the truth and offended someone here, so be it.
Governments and government contractors are the largest welfare organizations on the planet. It is a great place for those that cannot or couldn't cut it in the real world and find the comforts of socialism more to their liking.
Well, that's reassuring to hear. So what you're saying that it's okay to fail. It's okay to have interns perform brain surgery. It's okay to pay bonuses to incompetent shetheads.
Your ideal is noble and your zest and quest for success and excellence is both admired and lauded.
As our present White House occupant and leader once said in his motto, let's "Hope and Change"...
Unfortunately, based on my combined 40 years of working inside governments and outside as a government contractor, things are more likely to go 'the other way'.
Ah but would it not have been better for everyone - emps, shareholders and clients - if the outsourcing companies, such as IBM, SAIC, CSC etc would actually PERFORM QUALITY WORK on the contract and HOLD ONTO IT!!! Think of that - an actual SUCCESS??? Instead we have disasters such as NHS, and CITYTIME. IBM detonated a $1 billion deal with AstraZeneca, lost a Texas Data Center, and just lost Disney quietly and I think VF Corp as well. What everybody misses is that outsourcing may be cheap, but quality usually suffers and that hurts performance and contracts. Again, why not TRY TO SUCCEED!!!!! Imagine if NHS actually was a good thing instead of the horror show it is at CSC???
It has always been CSC's business mentality to "quick get this contract signed and we'll fix it later" that is a sure sign of failure.
I guess it's all about who can close the most contracts and get the highest bonus. Once the contract is signed, let the other sucker deal with it and lets move on to the next one.
All I can say is CSC shouldn't have bid for this contract after Accenture tried and failed with a 1.5B writeoff.
Someone needed to fire the idiot within CSC who decided to bid for this "no-win" contract.
