I worked at sun for about 5 years and was let go when oracle bought sun.
I worked at the menlo park main campus. I am older than 50 and I'm white. during my 5 years there, I got good reviews and was the main guy for one of the products (software) that ships on sun servers.
all you have to do is walk around the outside of any major silicon valley campus and you'll see the same thing over and over. yes, its mostly indian and we all know this, even though the media does not want to outright say it.
and I'm 90% certain that I was let go because all the rest of my group was indian and I was making a good salary there.
it happens to me at almost every place I'm at, these days. the inevitable firing when the numbers from the company go downward and they need a quick 'profit boost' by letting go of the senior and well-paid engineers. this rarely happens to the indians, though.
Speaking of the large Indian population - when did KSJO become a Bollywood station???
