In the northeast, particularly the ny metro area, we had 6 local folks in the install group prior to the outsource announcement . Upon the announcement, one person retired on our last day at HPE, one found another job, and the third stayed at HPE due to his clearance and job scope. Of the 3 of us left, one found another job elsewhere before the year was up, and i left for a civil service job 4 months after receiving the bonus. That leaves 1 local guy, and the folks in new england, pennsylvania, and delaware, must travel in every day to cover the workload. Concurrently, they are asked to fly all over the countey to cover other areas' work, as most areas are short of staff. Everyone that left for another job makes much more money, has a better job overall, and would never think of returning, as unisys, at least in my experience of working for 5 companies over the course of 32 years, is the worst IT employer ever. I will leave it at that, so as not to vent, but to inform. They have just recently(this week) cut their field technicians hours back to 32 hours, with the rationalization of saving jobs. Meanwhile, they have already laid off field technicians in other departments.
