Outsourcing, top manager outsources his own job to China

outsourced-call-centerIt’s genuinely hard to decide if this is the smartest or stupidest man in America. An unnamed computer programmer got caught outsourcing his own job to a company in China for just 20% of his six-figure salary. It’s been going on for years and was only uncovered after someone at his company noticed their website was being accessed from China.


It seems our friend physically FedExed his RSA security ID to China so the third-party contractor could login under his credentials during the workday. It would then appear that the employee was working an average nine-to-five work day.


In fact what he was doing was just goofing off surfing sites such as YouTube, Reddit, eBay and Facebook, before sending his superiors a daily status report and going home. Ironically, investigators had the opportunity to read through his performance reviews and for the last several years in a row he received excellent remarks. But they fired him anyway. Wait a minute? Fired? But he got his work done yes? And got good reviews? He’s not a bad employee. Just smarter than his bosses. Make that man a manager! (Ananova)
