Downsizing, Outsourcing, & Backstabbing: Memoirs From A Techie in the Telecom Industry

 
9781598791280: Downsizing, Outsourcing, & Backstabbing: Memoirs From A Techie in the Telecom Industry

Since graduating from Drew University in 1982, the author of this journal worked in the technical arena. During this "career", he has seen corporate America evolve from a time when (technical) employees were recognized for making a difference to the current period where technical employees are on a current assignment that can end at any moment. He has seen many former co-workers lose their jobs to mergers, attrition, H-1B visas, and outsourcing. He has seen a change from when an employee could work a full day and enjoy his/her free time with friends and family, to a period where free time is spent answering a pager or cell phone, or (even) worrying that the phone could ring in the middle of the night. In short, the technical employees who were treated as rock stars now have to hide from the executives throwing stones (and other things) at them. Even career advice has been reduced, making this book paramount for Informational Technology (IT) professionals. By the way, this author will donate 10% of all profits to Colorado Wheelchair Sports, because he actively participates in this organization and feels a social responsibility.
