Sorry to hear it, and I no its of little solice but you're better off not working for such a
company. To wit - why protect their name? Seems to me I'd want to make it clear which companies
are still under the belief that software development (I assume you're a programmer) is a
commoditized resource - if only so I can know to short their stock. I'm all for cheap labor and my
stance on allowing talented foreignors to come and compete freely is widely known - but most pure
offshore development efforts have failed miserably because people don't know how to manage
them correctly. Of course, a great many "onshore" ones do as well so I guess if you're planning to
lose money then you made the right decision to lose less of it... :-) But then - you shouldn't be CEO.
