Sometime in the next couple of months I’ll be working for a different company. Yet, I’ll still be coming to the same place, going to the same desk, and performing the same job. So, what gives?
Our work is being ‘insourced’.
I work for a health care provider. Sometime in the early-to-mid 2000’s, they outsourced most of their IT functions between two different companies. One company specialized in the infrastructure (network, servers, PC, phones), and the other was dedicated to the application systems that were used throughout the environment.
I work in infrastructure, and I started here in 2006. I was actually hired by that company in 2007, as it’s their standard practice to hire you first as a contractor before eventually bringing you on. So, yes, for awhile I was essentially a contractor of a contractor.
