Thread regarding Follett layoffs

Follett Development no more - Quality no more

Those of you at stores and HO; this doesn’t apply.

For sales: those new applications that will soon be going live (or recently have), were created by offshore teams in India. The software we have proudly created, maintained, and updated, over the years, is the base line and the new toys are being released sooner than ready. Sure, Destiny has bugs… when uncovered and prioritized, we write tests and fix the bugs, so they never happen again. These new “partners” (ha!!!) have never heard of such a thing. It’s ridiculous.

Look forward to a myriad of defects - probably show stoppers! But it’s ok - it’s cheaper to spent 10k each on 10 devs who do it wrong every time, than 100k on one dev who gets it in right the first time.

For those people who say defects haven’t gotten fixed in a long time - we don’t get the choice on the what we work on. We are told what to work on and have no say. We only work on what we are told to do. That’s reality.

All the new apps… crazy short timelines with uneducated offshore development. They pay Follett staff to babysit. No joke. Could hire more competent devs from 1st year college kids.

Get rid of Aman. Save Follett.

You think FSS offshore is useless?

FHEG/Corp offshore: hold my beer. My devs are on week 13 of what should have been a 3 week project.

AK was brought in to do the "hard stuff". Get FTE to leave either through layoffs or quitting. The books will be lighter and the company will be easier to sell. The family wants out and AK will be the one to deliver it. Stick around if you want, or secure yourself a position elsewhere before everybody else.

Agree!Driving the business into the ground. Admits to laying off good internal developers to have the funds to hire incompetent India folks. Nice move BF and AK. Nobody should have ever left you in charge. Fools.

Have Faith-why did anyone have faith in BF before she joined up with AK to outsource the very thing FSS has held dear since our CF days? She’s got no skills no experience nothing to bring to the massive job she was given. Except she’s family. You don’t give TL a pass. Why give the local news reporter a pass?

Our offshore team is nothing but a waste of money.

Aman is the worst thing that’s happened to Follett. All respect for BF is gone since she turned over the reigns to him. She had answers, just not enough confidence in herself or abilities. Instead she gave power to the devil.

She can take back this power and turn things around.
