I’m telling you, I can’t make this stuff up!

Seriously, according to this article on AustralianIT, CIOs in Australia are less than happy with the results of outsourcing. And, though it’s no surprise to me, CIOs in the US are even less happy! According to the article, roughtly one-third of the Australian CIOs were unhappy, but fully 50% of the US CIOs were unhappy with their decision to outsource! (I hope my former employers are reading this!)

So, I hope that executives start to think more before the send jobs off-shore. Cheaper isn’t always better!


  1. I hope the bastards cry all of the way to cash their bonus checks for sacking everyone. Sorry, but I doubt their sincerity. After all, they still have jobs.

    Now, if they get sacked for sacking everyone, well that’s a much happier situation all the way around. then I’d be more likely to believe in their sincerity. As it is, it sounds like they’re just trying delegate blame. Want me to trust you? Take one for the team.

    Not that I’m bitter or anything. :chuckle:

    Hey, guess what? The people they threw out in the streets aren’t too effing thrilled about it, either.

    I’ll come back if you pay me my old rate, you blood sucking bastards.
