Thread regarding McAfee layoffs

McAfee officially an Indian Company

Shutting down many sites. Laying off SCA and Plano. When will they officially designate themselves as Indian?

The fact is many (if not most) of the top-level management below CEO is Indian. While most other IPO stocks went up 50 - 200% days/weeks since IPO, McAfee stock went down 20% same week. That's just reality and customers/investors are NOT buying it. It's about time to SHORT this stock and go with other companies whose management truly care about their employees and customers/partners. Very much agreed with this prior comment:
Management changed to mostly indian, roles transferred to india. But it will backfire in terms of quality if you think all can be from low-cost location. Once customers complain enough, suddenly the hiring in the west starts again, you'll see.

There are not 3500 employees in MIC, and yes there were dozens of engineers laid off there. Your comment is grossly misinformed.

The original post isnt racist just stating an opinion. I see no derogatory comments about the indian race or culture, just pointing out that the workforce is growing in India. Why is that racist?

McAfee is an American corporation. Google it.
So this posts is just racist.

McAfee is just using cheaper resources outside US. And US and its culture and capitalism is what allows this to happen.

So change the US culture first, and this won't happen.

Shut up.

If you're offended by that, too bad. The fact is over 3500 employees are out of MIC. There are less than 6800 employees world wide (and less than that now). The majority of the company is in india, plain and simple. Further, no engineering positions in MIC were eliminated in the last RIF, faring far better than Cordoba and Tel Aviv, which were obliterated, as well as Plano and Hillsboro, and Santa Clara, all of which saw significant engineering talent walked to their home front doors. In fact there are software engineering recs open at McAfee; all of them in MIC. Those are the facts. That you may not like the facts doesn't change that. No matter how many times you close your eyes and repeat just how real fairies are, no matter how it makes you feel, when you come back to reality the facts are still the facts. So get over it.

This is such a racist comment. How do we report them?
Show me the evidence, how many workers they have in India, and how many workers they have outside India.
Have you actually read any of the other recent threads...? Just asking...

You would think that was the case. With the majority of the employees in India. If they say they are a Indian company I am guessing they would have a harder time trying to get any US government contracts.
