No one says you have to answer to anyone but public opinion will decide that you're full o'stuff when it comes to what you're saying.

All you've provided was a article that states USAA layoff 1,400 people in 2001.

Awesome show. Great job!

USAA relocating/buying out 1100 employees in other cities. 250-1000 will be relocated here. this is not a sign of strength and nothing to be excited about. this also means no new hirings here in SA, only relocations. once relocated, they will probably get 6 months before they are terminated as well, as per USAA standard operating procedure.

for example, earlier this decade, they relocated 1300+ people, then had 1400+ layoffs in san antonio. this is also when usaa brought on 1000+ indian contactors.
I guess I don't understand what is accomplished by relocating employees, and then terminating them shortly afterwards. If a two-week-salary-per-year-of-service severance payout policy is what is holding them back, then why wouldn't USAA just rescind the policy?

Even if it is in writing, employers can change or cancel a severance policy. I know; I worked for a company that did just that. They canceled a long standing written severance policy, then eliminated 25% of the workforce without a severance payout after the effective date of the change.
