At our company, most of the indians that are here are good salt of the earth people.

The salaried technical people are super mercenary and will fuck you HARD to make themselves look good. Fortunately there aren’t enough of them to consolidate power but fucking hell…. They will screw you really bad just because they can.

They are quote "restructuring" and "eliminated my job". No warning.

Took all my stuff and gave it to an Indian guy. The guy who notified me that my job was gone was also Indian.

You guys predicted it was going to happen after I burned an Indian consulting company a few weeks ago.

I freaking hate the IT sector.

Sorry man, that sucks.

"Eliminated your job" by giving it to someone else? Name and shame, man. It won't help you, but at least it'll be public knowledge.

Good luck in your search. HPC seems like a booming area, especially if you can combine that with AI.

When I was let go in 2020, I got a severance package, and took a job making $20/hr fixing school chromebooks, printers, desktops, laptops, etc.  Was a fairly fun job.  Was there for 3 months when my contact at the place I'm at now (which the company I used to work for sold, and was bought by another company) let me know a position was posted.  I was planning on jumping ship anyway, the only downside to this is that I lost my 6 weeks of PTO, and I'm back down to 3 now.  But I make more money, can work from home half the time, and I'm more siloed, so I have less responsibility.  Plus, the people here really appreciate I came back.  

It'll work out, OP.  There's lots of greener grass on the other side of the indian landfill.

I have been laid off I think 7 times at this point. Been doing this garbage over 20 years with the last 10 doing modeling and simulation. I have watched it turn from a job that Americans wanted to do to an Indian dominated sector. My office was probably 80% Indian.

Indian culture now dominates the IT space, they have completely taken it over top to bottom, left to right. People tell me that there kids want to do computers and I say this - if you are smart enough to do IT you are smart enough to do something else. Do you want to compete with these people in your own country for the rest of your life? NOPE.

Sorry, dude.  IT kinda blows (some places more than others; it's actually less shitty in the public sector).  H1Bs are bullshit (not to say that the Indian guy was, necessarily, an H1B, but I'll play the odds on it).  There is no tech worker shortage, just a cheap tech worker shortage.  For morbid entertainment, sometimes I read IT wanted ads; "Wanted: Senior DBA, with expert knowledge of VMware, Windows, Linux, and 'full stack' development experience.  Salary range $45-55K."  There are a lot of ridiculously written descriptions.  Experience has taught me a lot of that is just for 'cover' so cheap foreigner can be hired as an indentured servant to do something reasonably resembling the job really needed.  On the plus side, there are thousands of IT openings all the time and they're not all like that, so you'll find something.  Keep your chin up.

Welcome to the club OP. Got my notice last Friday. Ironically it's likely because my Indian boss (actually he's first generation American) who was really a good supervisor and genuinely good guy is leaving, and they put some clueless woman in his place. There's more to it than that, but no sense in trampling your thread. Good luck.

We had a gunsmith who was a very good programmer.  He told me when he reached middle aged, it became more difficult to stay in IT b/c the employer wanted fresh, younger look and middle class w/receding hairline ain't it.  He took up gunsmithing until he found it too unprofitable.

Our corporate HQ engineers saw the writing on the walls and started retiring. All of our engineering was outsourced to India and things went to shit. Assembly drawings were cut and pasted from other drawings, often showing components that weren't actually part of the assembly.

I finally had enough and retired. Who was my replacement?

An Indian guy.

OP, congratulations on no longer killing yourself for a company that doesn’t give a flying f*** about you or about building something useful and successful. It hurts to have the bandaid ripped off but, not to sound cliched, you’ve just been handed a great opportunity.

After my employer was acquired and the new bosses wanted to fire me for not providing my vaccination status, I left after 12 years. Found an AWESOME employer in a completely different field who rolled the dice on me. Despite my complete lack of industry experience, I demonstrated my competency and they thought, “maybe we can teach him.” I started at a low wage but learned the field. In just under 2 years they increased my salary 25%. I’m happy as a pig in shit, making much more money than before, and making the organization better. I love these people.

I really don't understand why companies still do that. Every time I've seen it, it's been a disaster. Replace 1 American engineer with 20 Indian engineers at a fraction of the salary total, except their output is so mediocre it has to be rewritten by American engineers later anyways. And when they do that with IT instead of product engineering, their incompetence (or laziness and apathy, I'm really not sure which) results in tons of stateside employees being unable to work for days at a time. The only metric where you "save" money is on salary. Once you factor in everything else, it's a disaster.

Get hired back in about a year when the outsourcing company completely shits the bed?  Not that I would know anything about such a thing...  Funny how it's only "mentoring" when they act racist as fuck.
