SEP layoff has been completed. Estimated 20 people got laidoff with majority of senior n experienced engineers n managers (basically money makers) .No respect as to what these guys put into making this company. Shame on the upper management. Why dont they fire themselves to save 100s of jobs.

Happened in 2015 as well and in prior layoffs.
When I worked at CMI, I was a resident without work restrictions. I never felt safe. The HR is made up of all H1B (as crazy as that is) and midwest natives. I was never in the club. I always wondered if their thought would be "that employee can find another job easier and has no family here so we can lay them off". I am glad I got out when I did and the advice below could not be more true!
It is almost like self-fulfilling prophecy on how they want the employee makeup to be.
If you’re an American engineer or resident without any work restrictions, work at CMI and get your experience and get out. The largest groups of employees in Indiana are either HIBs or Midwest natives who have limited options. Lots of politics involved in these layoffs, regardless of your projects and performance, say the the wrong thing to the wrong person and they’ll use these cyclical RIFs to get rid of you.
Damn, that was bloody.
