And there is a lot going on here. These firms are moving into to the Fortune 500 and taking over IT departments, causing massive layoffs.
They are treating their employees like dirt. Great pay at signing, but then they send you twice as much work as you can do and then threaten to lay you off. Eventually, they do lay you off as they outsource your job to India or Brazil.
But, right now their business model is working for them. I worry about their clients, however. IBM, which I have first hand knowledge about, screws up the tech side so it is impossible for a firm to take their business elsewhere.
We've all been in that situation where we found ourselves married to a software package that we wanted to dump, but entire companies are handing over their entire IT enterprise to firms they do not any leverage over.
