Next layoff coming in first quarter. Plan is to go all vendors.

I can’t speak to 2021, but I can tell you that 75% of my Harrison developer colleagues of Transamerica are being laid off in an unprecedented elimination of senior staff by the end of November. They are being filled by consultants sourced by Synechron. I find it very disturbing that senior staff are being targeted. I further find it unsettling that many of the Synechron staff are not US citizens and possess H1B visas. It has been suggested that Synechron is being used because of the relationship they have with their former managing director, George Vega, who is now CTO at Transamerica. I prefer not to promote rumors, but I now feel it is suspicious to say the least. Luckily, I was spared from this layoff, but who knows what 2021 holds. I know that I can no longer give my allegiance to a company that behaves in this manner. I wish my colleagues the best of luck for the future in these already troubling times. I wish us all luck for 2021.
