Almost all Engineering and Tech companies who contract out work are doing the same.Outsourcing to cheaper locations might be good for the beancounters (note... their jobs hardly ever go overseas) but the skills drain is immense.It happened to me twice. The last time I refused to train my Indian replacements. They had two people just to do my job.The experiences of the first episode made me think long and hard about training people who really didn't care about the job and who were unable to ask relevant or hard questions for fear of losing face with their boss.I have warned my grandchildren away from going into the IT business as there is no future for it in the west.
