Thread regarding CSC layoffs

With the change...

HPE has been staging contractors on those government contracts... obviously, NewCorp wasn't going to be allowed to keep those contracts under CSC ownership. With the change, it means a bloodbath on both sides, as HPE sheds all those "expensive" employees on government contracts in favor of those temps who presumably have been busy transferring knowledge over the last two or three months. Manager turnover has been high in those groups too... indicating some troubling policies being sent down from the board. I doubt CSC employees will fill any roles on those particular contracts; as for the rest, it will be a race to offshore as much of the non-government stuff as possible.

HPE's goal under the "great" Meg has been to Off-shore at 80% and she's almost there now.

Off-shore maybe cheap, but they don't think outside the box and when quick on the fly responses are needed they are like a deer in head-lights.

Based on the last financial results conference call, Mike Lawrie stated the goal was to move to 65-75% off-shore model.

The majority of the off-shore talent are "book smart" and "street stupid". They have the degrees, big deal, but they don't have any real world experience to put that education to practice. They think if someone has 3 years experience in IT, they are capable of becoming an architect! It is so sad and it only hurts those of us with 30+ years of experience, who know what an architect is really supposed to do...

Bloodbath? 50 to 60% of the workforce off-shore? Yep you are spot on.
