HP boss places bets on 1,000 staff at UK race track

no hope?

yeah, the thing is tho - the people at the top don't know what's it's like on the ground (i.e. technical support etc) as most of the team leader / middle management are useless...

there's talk of getting rid of 1800 ITO staff - surely this is what hp bought EDS for..? their expertise..? or was it at a higher level (project management etc?)

they're already got rid of staff (VR) then having to replace them once they've left...

morale amongst most of the uk staff is absolutely rock bottom now and the threat of VR has been going on for over a year due to best shoring etc...and people wonder why sensitive data goes missing - the reality is that the staff don't care...
