Cock-roaches

My first encounter with those smelly cock-roaches were in the 80's when scores of them showed up in old clothes and sandals as contractors who were stacked in meetings rooms and closets by the dozens, They would stay for 4 to 6 months and go back to India wearing levis, I love NY t-shirts, and nike tennis shoes.

It really hasn't gotten any better .

Wipro was the beginning of contracting pimp-service .

I interviewed at RS years ago.

It is located in a crime + gang ridden section of San Antonio .. in an abandoned shopping mall enclosed by razor wire fencing. It was like entering a prison. The turn over rate I was told is a big problem. SA is not a high-tech zone except for few military bases that only hire "IT contractors" .

A real dead-end place for a career . I didn't like the interview process and I had no interest in getting a job there afterwards.

Remember when HP(E)'s logo was " Invent " .. ? I can't even get their various name right anymore it has changed so much.

Now it is "Outsourced to lowest bidder"

Their other attempt at building a cloud platform was stealing Debian Linux to make a Openstack deployment .. and that ended up in the gutter in about a year.

My last review at HP was 1 line

After 25 years my 3rd manager in two years wrote " does not meet expectations " .. because he never set any expectations. I had just turned 50.

That is how they weed people out.

There is a reason INVENT was.removed from HP logo

Because HP invents nothing. It only outsources to the lowest bidder.

Remember. Cloud Computing ...

DXC: We axed 10k staff, shut nine data centres, closed 4.6m sq ft of office space... and sales tumbled, funnily enough

Euca was swallowed up by that cesspool and dealt a death blow.

Re: To be clear ...US gave China the technology

So many DOWN votes - I must have hit a nerve.

I dare any down voter to list a piece of modern equipment in their sphere of life that is NOT MADE in China . Crawl under the dashboard of you car and look there too . I'd include looking at the packaged food in your kitchen too.

fredesmite2

Re: "... US gave China the technology"

Look at the bottom of ANY electronic device in your home, or work .. and list how many DO NOT have "made in China " and post that list of equipment here .

I dare you

To be clear ...US gave China the technology

US corporations have been spoon feeding China manufacturing for decades with technology ..Every technique they use US firms gave it to them .

Re: It hurts the Chinese...

But the pussies grabber supporters never mention who actually pays the final tax .. the consumers.

Re: It hurts the Chinese...

Chinese will not be hurt at all... the peasants have no idea what the outside world is doing and as long as they get their 2 cups of rice with fish heads they think everything is ok.

fredesmite2

REMEMBER : CONSUMERS PAY ALL TAXES AND TARIFFS

What a fucking asshole.

China doesn't give a shit. Their 2b people are not going to see any difference because they have no control.
