Thread regarding Ford layoffs

I don’t understand

Ford is giving up so easily on their most experienced employees and best performers, the very employees that had the best ability to create new value and do the job the right way.
I’m not saying that there are no knowledgeable and hard working young folks, but isn’t it too much o a gamble for the company to put important jobs into the hands of employees that didn't prove themselves. I get the goal is to cut costs, but from what I’ve seen often this turns out to be a more expensive option for the company.

It makes perfect sense for a company that is selling. All that matters is short term COSTS . Nothing else matters and COSTS drive everything. Ford is setting up to be sold off. Example: Blue is sold to VW, Pro is sold to CAT, Navastar, Model-e keeps the Ford name to complete BF’s vision. Ford as we know it will not be around in a few years….

@OP. Let's face it, no "Data Mining Analyst or Software Developer" worth their salt is going to prefer Ford over Silicon Valley. So FMC is shedding its only advantage over Silicon Valley (at least until we get the Apple car): the experienced vehicle manufacturing Engineers. At the same time, FMC is replacing those with "second rate" developers and it intends to make better software products than the competition. Am I the only one seeing the stupidity?

We should double down in making better vehicles, and then make a great integrated software. Instead, we are just doing cr---y vehicles with buggy software.
