Wow this is bad.  A coworker's wife works there.  Wonder what they will do.  Hopefully she is close enough to retirement.

Here is the word:

2900 people remain in CA.
750 positions are being added to TEMA in Erlanger, KY.
Bulk of operations (~2400 positions) across TEMA, TMS, and TFS move to Saline and Plano.

This move sounds in between Honda's IT/legal/HR move to Ohio and Nissan's full blown exit to Tennessee.

so what is left here?

I wonder if the TMS datacenter is moving too?  I wouldn't want to be in charge of that.

According to this WSJ article (http://online.wsj.com/news/article_email/SB10001424052702303939404579529672654374090-lMyQjAxMTA0MDIwODEyNDgyWj), Denver, Charlotte and Atlanta were in the mix. So maybe John's Creek was under consideration.

Some other interesting tidbits from the article:
A challenge for Toyota will be avoiding a brain drain. Nissan retained just 32% of its workforce when it relocated from the Los Angeles area to Franklin, Tenn., outside of Nashville. Many more employees returned to California after a few years, said Larry Dominique, who was the chief of U.S. product planning for Nissan at the time and now is president of Automotive Lease Guide, a unit of TrueCar Inc.

The auto maker also has a small manufacturing operation in Long Beach, Calif. Toyota said its design studio and several other smaller functions would remain in California, keeping its total workforce there at 2,300.

I love that Texas taxpayers are paying $40M to make it happen.

So much for "limited government."

CA needs to be more corporate friendly.

It is, if you're the "right kind" of corporation.  I'm sure if you're a "green" company and donate to the powers that be, you'll be just fine in CA.  Unless the laws of economics take hold.  That's just the way it is, until it's not.   >:D

They are getting a long term bargain

True, but if the relatively modest dollar figure of $40 million is all the incentive it took to uproot a stable long time business the offset costs of simply staying put must have been enormous.  This just illustrates the onerous overhead and costs of doing business in our little corner or heaven.  We need to really re-think our anti-business environment.
