Thread regarding Western Union layoffs

No incentives for those not laid-off to stay on sinking ship

So as WU will be in chaos for the next year, and especially where in IT things will get really bad when the majority of the teams are in India, and the company continues to decline, at this time, there are no incentives for those not laid-off to stay around. So those with any transferable skills will be leaving.

This is WU for you, only a few privileged such as those who are best friends with the CEO and we all know who they might be are well cared for, such an imbecile of a CEO. Nice to see a company CEO play shuffleboard, sit back, relax and watch the show. Those who remain at WU will be the most disadvantaged. Just imagine for a while the environment those people will have to contend with. Its been great knowing you WU.

Management still hasn't learned that you can't cut your way to success. Kowtowing to the quarterly demands of Wall Street investment firms and chasing "shareholder value" are a surefire recipe for disaster.

On the IT front, anyone at WU who has worked with Indian outsourcing firms has experienced their incompetence firsthand. Don't get me wrong, they do have very skilled and accomplished people, but they are the exception rather than the rule. The company would be making a grave mistake if they outsource yet more IT functions.
