Thread regarding Lenovo layoffs

Apple in RTP is bad for Lenovo Employees

With the announcement of Apple HQ coming to RTP, it will be bad news for Lenovo employees. Lenovo can't compete with the salaries Apple is going to have. They may lose some people to Apple, but the general tech salaries are going to increase beyond what Lenovo, IBM, Cisco, and others will pay. Lenovo will instead shift even more US jobs to China and get rid of more RTP workers.

For those very few that have the skills Apple wants, you will be fine. For the rest that think they will be safer, that is a bad misconception. You are now more vulnerable and Apple gives Lenovo more reason to abandon US workers.

Haha because people who work for Apple and pay that absurd amount for cost of living in CA are smart okay. I think I can take my engineering degree+MBA from a top university anywhere I so choose. Speak for yourself!

Bad for everyone- they aren’t here to hire local yokels and unemployed hi--------s...lol. Driving up the cost of everything - overloading infrastructure- clogging up the plumbing with all that libertarian yuppie BS. Getting big incentives for promises that amount to a fa-t in the wind

There are no employees or contractors with the skills Apple is looking for. Many of these jobs will be from internal employees wanting to get out of California. Sell their over priced homes, buy a home for cash here, and buy rental properties. Definitely no skilled labor in Lenovo, Cisco, or IBM going to Apple. People with those skills are smart enough to already be out of those companies.

Lenovo has been hiring lower paid contractors a lot for the last 9+ years now. Take for example the inside sales team on the PC side. They seem to rotate in 20 or more new contractors (most have less than 5 years of sales experience) every quarter (to replace several existing ones) and since they are contractors, some don't even earn commission on their sales. I know in other departments, some people remained as contractors even over 10 years; their managers + directors just didn't put in the request to convert them into regular employees even when those contractors asked. The contractors don't get a commission, don't always get any bonuses from Lenovo, and many times don't get raises either (in fact many CTG contractors don't even get overtime pay for working overtime hours - just straight time pay). What I'm getting at is that Lenovo has already been cutting their "costs" by making so many people basically expendable over the last several years, I don't think the management cares if people jump ship over to Apple as long as they (the managers) aren't affected themselves.
