This is the first I've heard about this, will it affect my team? I'll have to arrange a meeting if someone can help me do this.

Fire 40+ experienced GERAN engineers in favour of the same number of inexperienced engineers in India (who have not even yet been recruited yet!) just to save a few hundred dollars in LLR is an act of short sighted lunacy and immense disrespect to the UK team. I have admiration for the GERAN team in India and have over the years forged some good friendships and professional relationships with some of the more talented and sociable members of the team. The fact is though that these guys come from a production line education system and work with a production line mentality. The teams in India are perfectly capable of making small design tweaks and supporting stable product lines but continue to prove time and time again they are highly incompetent when it comes to creative thought and serving the critical needs of the product that fall outside of the narrow boundaries of the time-bounded task to which they have been assigned. It makes me sad to say it, but I am done with Qualcomm - any company that can make a decision like this is not worthy of my time. Roll on 06/16!

Here's the plan for the transfer to our QIPL friends, first they need to enrol in some proper university and complete a degree, no, you can't pay to get it in europe. Once they have grasped the basics of embedded programming, we can train them on the particulars of the geran code base. I am going to have such a laugh when geran is in the spotlight for stability issues, lte will be happy, pressure will move to geran and they will have some rest!

What I don't get is how come they expect people in UK to transition their knowledge/expertise to QIPL while knowing that they will be laid off eventually within 9 months. They will need to find us in the pubs or or at home etc but definitely not in the office so good luck with that and don't blame even for one second any of the folks in the UK or question their professionalism. What is happening to us is ridiculous.
