Once great company, aging and sneaking out of US borders

Former Employee - Project Manager  in  Atlanta, GA
Former Employee - Project Manager in Atlanta, GA

Pros

- Extremely talented and motivated workforce
- Access to a vast array of potential markets for project work

Cons

- US employee pool is on a 'shelf-life' as 'Profits' are posted year after year though the off-shoring of jobs to India disquised as 'Reorganizations' and 'Resource Actions'
- Salary Increases are simply pathetic, if they occur at all, given a company that has done 'so well' during the downturn
- Career Advancement opportunities are anemic at best

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop offshoring US jobs to AP in the 'dark of night' masked as Resource Actions.
