    Big layoffs at INOC today.

    Lost a big chunk of their IT developers and a few vital people in IT operations (they were already barely able to keep things afloat as is). I was told they even got rid of some of their new developers that were supposed to be developing for the "new" Java platform. Yet another multi-million down the drain on another lost cause. There's only a few people left (there are apparently only about 10 people left on the entire second floor, other than the incompetent overstaffed HR department). At this rate, INOC should start leasing out all of the empty cubes to make some extra money, to at least pay for the electricity.

    I think they also tossed the wonderboy CTO that they promoted from the return.com disaster a year ago. Funny, since the new contractor CIO has been spewing the exact same things as he did a year ago -- and they're paying the new guy an hourly fee. I think the old guy would have done great -- he had some excellent ideas that would have pushed INOC well past its competitors, if Reno/Chicago didn't completely screw him.

    It doesn't sound like anyone from Reno or Chicago got hit with this, even though they're the cause of all of the problems in the first place. From what I understand, the management in Reno, that hid the problems from Atlanta for almost a year, is still there, and still causing major roadblocks in getting things accomplished.

    Dorfman and Gamsey and the new CIO are holding a damage control meeting tomorrow to try and keep more IT people from jumping ship. Good luck. If I was there, I would have bailed long ago.

    Hey INOC IT staff.. check the job postings ... the market's coming back. Get out while you can.
