I have something interesting to tell you but I’m warning you, this is coming second hand and I hope I have all the details right.
My company sold their IT department to EDS. Hewlett Packard then bought EDS, not long after.
The other day, an EDS employee was on my floor and told one of my fellow admins that Hewlett wanted to adjust everyone’s salary to be more competitive with the folks in India, since alot of the outsourcing was done there. First of all, what competition? We are in two different countries with two different economies, etc.
Needless to say, HP adjusted her salary to what she was making back in 1999.
I was so floored that I had no words to say about this. What are your thoughts?
