Not the place to advance your IT career
Magic words are synergy means out source you work to cut cost.
You will not advance here.
It's a follow the leader environment, if the leader sinks you will sink with them.
If you are bright they test you to pieces and if you survive you may have a chance of promotion, but unlikely.
Put in your time and leave, don't hang around.
May be a learning opportunity.
All depends where the synergy wind blows for the day
