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

Re: Another corporate sacking them off...

I do feel sorry for the good staff. Many of my former colleagues have been there for years and when you're older and have family commitments it's a much bigger decision to up sticks and move on compared to when you're just starting out and don't have to think about schools, partners job, looking out for elderly parents etc. Making the decision to move on from a place where you're comfortable and know the routine is a big decision and should not be underestimated.

I don't feel sorry for (ex)clients as they should have made sure the contracts included break clauses for missing targets and been aware of the risks of lock-in to any supplier.
