My company recently acquired a large tech firm in india. We are in the business of Insurance Software.We currently have about 1500 US employees. The India office has ~600. During corporate meeting today, they touted that they are continuing to "invest in our India Team Members" and are during a hiring spree and promotion spree.In my department, we've been dealing with severe lack of resources and no shortage of work. We've been asking for new hires and only gotten a few fresh college grads.Today my boss gave notice that Indian Team Members will be "shadowing" our development groups to help offset some pressure on us.Should I be worried for my job? Am I about to be training my cheap offshore replacement?Is now the time to start dusting off my resume?
>>81458641Yes it is time to dust off your resume. OR end up being buddies with the Indians and start your own contracting company.
yep, the previuos company i worked in was acquired by an indian company. so i switched to another job just in time before the shit hits the fan
>>81458641Yep you're training your replacements.Get a new job as soon as possible.
>>81458641You are being replaced by cheap and stupid ipajeets, do as little work as possible and gtfo.
>>81458641I got laid off because my boss hired three freelancers.As >>81458921 said, time to get texlive installed. Good luck on the job market.
>>81458641>Is now the time to start dusting off my resume?yes, but not for the reason you fear (that they're gonna take your job), but because this is a sure sign that your company will be out of business soon. once the indians take over development, the quality of your product will go downhill, severely. your company will last maybe 2 years, tops.
Be sure to train your replacement in the worst possible way and start negotiating your severance package.
