Microsoft Layoffs

Due to “restructuring”, Microsoft has started laying off some of it’s marketing team. If it was up to me, and I was restructuring, I’d be finding these folks some different positions within the company at the very least. If they weren’t good enough to keep, then I can see a layoff, but I’m sure they are throwing away some good talent there. It’s been rumored that the layoffs were coming, and were expected, but sad that they have to pack up their offices and get their resumes out again. Good luck, guys and gals.

One Marketing Manager at Microsoft tweeted on February 1 that the layoffs had begun. “Microsoft to announce major layoffs today as a result of marketing org restructuring,” tweeted Commercial and Communications Sector Lead Maher Al-Khaiyat.
