Via Going Concern: WTF is with PwC's New Indian HR Campaign?

I'm a little baffled by the announcement from PwC that they've launched this mega HR campaign in India that they find really, really exciting.

Will there be shiny marketing materials to accompany this? One can only hope.


On the surface, Saratoga [PricewaterhouseCoopers' Indian HR project] looks like little more than an inventory count of companies’ human capital, which means something when you have to keep a leash on a bunch of customer service guys with fake first names (how else would you keep track of them?).

See, PwC cares. They care that JP Morgan outsources call center jobs to India – I know this because I’m a Chase customer (leave me alone) and have had the misfortune of dialing in. Meanwhile, JPM’s off-shore hiring spree continues and someone’s got to handle all that “human capital”, why not PwC?

Like I said there, I don't care that some guy in India has a job, I care that he tries to pretend like his name is actually Patrick and puts on a bizarre American accent while doing so. Not that I'm bitter or anything.
