Re: Loss making

Have a upvote, I was contracted to Syntegra when they were making great profits, then got dragged screaming back into the mothership and were forced to use all the BT systems and processes instead of how they operated sucessfully independantly.

Early on in the re-merger exercise I remember a visit from a new high up BT manager appointed to our special division after the changes and he stood up in front of 20 people and told us that the next move was to get rid of all those leeches draining the company dry, ie contractors.

Interesting tactic to mobilise and improve things as most of us were on contract, and the rest were admin or managerial, and we pulled in millions of pound of profit per year as a team selling high expertise solutions to very discerning customers.
