I moved to Georgia last year and have been in job hunt mode between contract jobs and whenever I see something posted by EITHER CSC or, worse, IBM - I avoid it. No life is worth working for these #$%$ outfits and as a former IBMer and CSC er, I know the truth about working with them.
Interestig, old IBM - and it is old now - is concentrating on Cloud and Big Data too, so they are desperate to go with current trends that smaller, more nimble companies are already jumping on. Cyber security is VERY important given recent breaches, but ... wow, took 'em this long to figure this out??? Can dense be a more appropriate word??? CSC is slowly moving, too slow to survive.
WOW, maybe that is good news our wayward savant is looking for to DRIVE IT $12 BY FRIDAY.
More good news?? Don't see it, have not seen it for months, maybe a year. DUMP URSULA would be good.

Karl Marx had it all wrong, do not quote him as the guiding light of argument. What modern management does do wrong is to focus ONLY ON SHAREHOLDER VALUE to the exclusion of all else. I prefer W. EDWARDS DEMING as my model, who said that a deadly disease is to have companies focus on that alone. IF you focus on the business, providing quality service and product, all the rest will follow along as it should. Never a guarantee of course, but if your product is good, and your focus is on client satisfacation, then employees are rewarded and stock price goes up WITHOUT DECIMATING EVERYTHING ELSE along the way. Obviously, Triumph, you want a 5 year plan in place. Try Moscow, you'll find free enterprise thriving over there. LOL.
Watson - calculate the value of Pi to the last digit. That will learn'em.
He has chosen many varieties of Friday for years, occasionally he is bound to get one right. You have to persistence, attitude and the ability to copy and paste common text. He is also good with the exclamation mark and capital letters. I would not let him near HIGHLIGHTS FOR CHILDREN however.
IBM on the cutting edge? HAHAHA what a joke. That USED to be true when IBM was controlled by the Watson family, not dominated by the Watson computer. They are FAR behind the edge, and only cutting into their own bone and marrow by cutting staff and cutting FAR too many of them who actually KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING and,instead, hiring phone call reps in India. God help OLD BIG BLUE as it used to be, it aint
No, we did not hear it here first, you been on this insane drumbeat for years now.
HAHAHAHA --- HAVE? IBM has no technology to speak of, they have sold off everything solid and real, and are investing in cloud and big data, late to this game by far. IBM is FAR from the best, betcha you read those posts by topguninvestor. This is a dead firm moving along only by mass and nothing else.
The nature of this move sounds horrible, almost like a firm pulling down the REVOLVERS for a last shot of credit or cash before THE END comes. Read up on ENRON to learn what this move is, but this smacks of pure despiration by management to get cash NOW. Never a good sigh.
One poster here on the 401K plans indicated that Aon Hewitt hosts the site, which is a blatant conflict of interest as Aon, i.e. Hewitt has LONG been a CSC client. I know, I was part of the group outsted - outsourced out - in December of 2005. That a client is managing retirement funds is, well, conflict. How else can you argue that.
Now you are new to this board, all you other posts - I looked them up - involve some other firm you spammers like to pick on as the next best thing. GOBO or something like that, so please get your facts right - Aon HAS moved to London. Done deal. Finito.
Back up the truck, you must be the moron from the Xerox board. Guess you believe and other's should too?
