    Nope MPhasis are owned by Private Equity since HP sold in 2016 - its now mainly owned by BlackStone Group see Mphasis - Wikipedia

    It wouldn't be so bad but I pointed this out 4 posts ago...

I know because I was thinking I was applying for a contract at HP and it turned out I had to work for Mphasis after the second interview. I told them to F.O for wasting my time and keeping me in the dark about this.

    my 1st contract was with them. The 'lifers' were truly awful.

    I wonder what made them think combining the worst management (EDS/HP) with the worst workers (cheap, poorly skilled Indian techs), would ever make a successful business.

    Yep, the ownership by EDS / HP rather screwed their expansion options when everyone else was massively expanding.

    And Google say:

    Infosys revenue 1 Trillon Rupees
    Mphasis revenue 100 Billion Rupees

    Which UK Companies actually use their services/data? Should be named and shamed!
    From a clients point of view they can sometimes be better.

    They will bend over for the client and do the needful when UK agents might not.

    Absolutely tulip loads of UK companies use Indian outsourced services. Especially for development. There probably isn't a company in the FTSE-250 who don't. And I'd be surprised if any of the largest 5,000 companies don't or haven't.
    So what do you think you'll benefit by naming them?
    +1 - why do you think we tell anyone asking for advice to move up the skillset (from developer to architect) and to do customer facing roles that can't be done remotely (yes I know about Covid but think longer term).

    I don't want this agency to represent my contracting business. It seems like they have outsourced their recruitment consultants.

    And then this morning I had an email from a different company outfit supposedly based in Harrow, HA1, London. They also had an office based in India Pty as advertised on the email signature.
    The email was about a ____ developer job in central London for 6 months. So I thought okay, goody.

    So I started reading:



    The job description text appeared all in blue in my Gmail, and at the bottom of the email it read:



    It was complete spam. I just thought this was basic-level bottom of the pyramid stuff. They obviously grabbed my details from JobSite or CWJobs website, because I am looking, but I now believe that this trend of clipper cheap-as-chips cowboy building contractor is very real. Somebody else out there falling for the hook like a fish and it ain't me.

    See also the thread State of the Market from a few weeks ago!
    dabster does not have any contact person in Ireland, issue with payment time frame, They use UK numbers + 44 while being in India misleading people. <mod snip> is very abusive, does not care about laws in Ireland. Their contact method is whatsup with Indian numbers. they were already other victims, please check forums
