Thread regarding AT&T layoffs

What's T strategy with India and Eastern European hubs?

I know it's just more offshoring to improve the bottom line, but my question is with countries enacting stricter data compliance rules , how can T flirt laws and allow corporate data to flow into regions outside the US.

Plus doesn't using external offshore resources expose additional IT security holes as offshore staff may have incentives beyond a paycheck?

They’re gonna funnel money through Eastern Europe. Just like the big guy.

This cannot be a serious question.

Meanwhile Verizon is offshoring to the Caribbean. Same time zone, most speak English, easy flights to get there if needed or them here, and cheaper than India. My buddy that works there said they are closing their India ops and ramping up there as fast as they can.

Generative AI won’t come to its full fruition for years at this rate… despite all the big talk from the globalists & soulless technophiles.

Workers in India work exclusively in the office and are expected to collaborate.

The point is, we were fed bull for over a year now, how everyone must be in the hub with their teams, right? Except half of your team can be in India, and it's fine, "they" are "collaborating" with each other, over there. I wish these companies just grew some ba--s and laid off as many people as they feel they need to without these stupid games. When Legg was asked if he was moving to Dallas, his answer was, "I'll be there when I'm needed". Rats like him don't have to put their families through relocation, but you and I do? By all means, keep looking for excuses for these "people". You won't find any.

I see lots of posts on LinkedIn lately from people in India sharing that they were just hired by AT&T. Still find it funny that collaboration in the office doesn't seem to apply there, but I guess it's rather off-topic.

Lets face it. Generative AI is going to essentially wipe out the need for developers (coders). Prompt engineering solutions require a skillset that is not at the "coding" level. All of these jobs are in jeopardy - and yet we are hiring coders in these areas left and right.

It will be interesting to see how the economies of these countries fare when their development resources are replaced by Gen AI.

Move the entire C suite clown show to Bangalore first. Now that would be leadership.

Offshoring work?
As a CPA, I'm more concerned about the IRS offshoring Tax Returns to India and Pakistan.
I have a client that received 2 ea. $18k tax refunds. At 5 years the statute of limitations ran out and should the U.S. want their money back, well - too bad, so sad.

Is security of the network really your top concern?

It’s far worse than most are aware. The control in biz billing is a written policy that offshore do not view sensitive restricted contracts such as Federal or State Gov without any method for monitoring for violations.

T doesn’t care. In the end, it’s all about the bottom line and where can the same work be done by the cheapest labor.

should not be offshored.

You would think so but not true. The outsourced this kind of thing to IBM in the past who then off shored it. Now AT&T is doing it directly.

Anything that connects to the fiber transport and switch network cannot and should not be offshored. These routers and switches that are used for monitoring and configuring the network are a security risk point and should be only accessed by trusted employees in the US. I believe national security rules prevent this. It would be like giving foreigners the password to our electrical grid.
