Microsoft about to fire 17% of employees
Just a few days after Danny Sullivan told Microsoft where they went wrong when it comes to search it seems as Microsoft has other problems it's focusing on. Rumors are that Microsoft will be laying of 17% of its employees.
The cutbacks at Microsoft are supposed to be taking place within two weeks, January 15th is the date named as the day for the massive lay offs. Lay offs will take place not only in the US but also in other parts of the world, including Europe.
15.000 out of 90.000 Microsoft-employees maybe out of a job early into the new year. Most probably the lay offs will take place in those areas that are not making enough revenues. If the search-part is one of them is not clear yet. Microsoft will present its earning reports January 22nd.
