IT Heartache

It's been tough in IT for, what, about the last 10 years? It's gotten even worse in the last two, as you've been asked to not only do more with less, but sometimes do more with nothing!

How have these budget cuts affected you? How does it feel to lose co-workers or even be the one to give them their pink slips? How do you keep your head up and respond to these challenges? How do you prioritize spending when you're dealing with chump change?

I want to bring your stories to life in a cover story for Redmond magazine. I want your war stories and advice. E-mail me directly at [email protected] and we may feature your experiences in this upcoming article!
