Years ago when Novell was nifty and IT was respected, it was a good career but today American management is driving everybody with skill sets OUT of it by outsourcing and offshoring everything they can. I truly believe that IT is viewed not as an integral part of a business but as an expense line item that can be reduced if we outsource to India and thereby pay staff $5 an or so, maybe less, and no health care benefits either. Just look what IBM is doing with so many of it's employees. Accounts have deserted Big Blue because of bad service from India. AstraZeneca cut it's 7 year deal. ServiceMaster said BYE BYE and is insourcing everything. Hilton went away. And IBM views this as a good thing so they can further cut AMERICAN workers and invest more in India.
IT used to be fun. It is dreadful now and I am the sorrier for it.
