Why are they hiring if they are "pulling out" and still actively recruiting?

So you don't know what kind of clawbacks the county and state have in place on them if they leave before 2017?

You little punk, you better get your ass back to work and quit surfing topix during business hours, or we'll be down one more member next week.

I looked at the jobs on http://jobs.cgi.com and they have jobs here in Lebanon. Would they do that if they were leaving?

Don't really care about the same old job postings for .net that they aren't ever going to fill anytime soon in Lebanon. Doesn't anyone with .net skills leave CGI as soon as they are trained?

Don't really care that CGI is transferring the brass-plated members out of there, and doing more PIP firings. Don't expect them to bail at all before the 2012 elections, but look for a more gradual process. Want to take bets on them still being around here by 2017?

Do sort of care CGI tells new hires and all others they built and own that building, when it is a flat out lie, the building was built and is owned by Russell County and leased to CGI for 10 years. Now, is it a $1 a year, or something else? Are there penalties if they leave early? Do they have to pay back any of the other incentives?

Very interested in what the community and taxpayers got out of the deal. The Canadians got to lay off people in Fairfax and hire ETSU grads for half the money, and the politicians here got to say they are bringing in jobs, but what about the community? Do you think Russell County and SWVA are that much better off from the 10 million or so spent to get CGI here?

...Alcoa....Teleflex...Lear... . Yes I do agree... Cgi will follow suit just like all the other companies that were lured into Russell County with tax benefits...money..buildings etc.... When the perks run out...they pack up and leave town.... Guess our leaders like the nice collection of empty buildings the county is acquiring .....

What is the point, good question. I guess I'm just surprised that these kinds of deals ain't more out in the common public knowledge, and politicians ain't run out of town on a rail or whatever, and that a foreign company managed to get what seems like a much better deal than for example, Grumman. At least Grumman had to pay for and build their own building here.
