in the past 3 years that ive been with this company, ive watched mbo's for % of offshore development go from 25%, to 40%, to 50% this past year. is this how it is in every company? i wouldnt mind it that much if we were an international company, but 95% of the revenue comes from US citizens, and a significant amount from the public sector

Yup. Brownies are cheap labor, and quantity over quality applies. It really is the software development equivalent of fast food. Tastes like shit, but people keep going back for it because it's cheap, quick and easy.
