Some companies that went with sending programing jobs overseas have actually stopped the process and returned back to the good ol' USA for it's own people.

I saw an article last month about how a company had outsourced its IT department and is now taking it back in-house. They were claiming that it would be a competitive advantage to them over their competitors that had outsourced! This should be obvious, and if your IT department isn't delivering, that should be fixed, not by outsourcing. But above a certain size company, it seems insane to have another company essentially running your business. Now, companies that can't afford an IT department may gain something by going with a service company.

Another interesting claim is that the outsourcing company hired the IT department employees that were being laid off.

If a company is in the software business, I can't see how sending the work overseas will make the company stronger. It may mean that you have paid to set up a competitor.
