Microsoft seems to be in the process of a pivot, shifting focus away from its platforms to general productivity, at least on the mobile side of things. And there is no shortage of opinions on this change. One such insight has come from Tim Sneath, a former Microsoft employee who spent no less than 17 years at the...

The company has received the Global Randstad Award 2015, despite the challenging situations it had to face with the recent waves of layoffs pertaining to the Nokia acquisition. Google has, over the past few years, attained leading position in this list, but Redmond has managed to enhance its image across the world —...

Or what is actually termed as the final round. More depressing news, but we just had the latest round of Microsoft layoffs with the company releasing hundreds of employees across the globe. These are, of course, part of the 18,000 or so job cuts that were announced last year. Back when Microsoft completed the takeover...

Everyone has a breaking point, I guess. Microsoft employees usually have an easygoing attitude with whatever top level changes the company goes through. Usually.

Out of these, 747 were in the state of Washington, while the rest of the cuts occur worldwide, in various Microsoft offices across...

Redmond is on track to announce its second round of job cuts this week, on September 18 to be precise. These Microsoft layoffs are part of the gigantic cut of 18,000 that were made official this summer. That announcement back in July sent shockwaves across the technology domain. Microsoft, at that time, confirmed that...

Pretty absurd move, if true. Microsoft is indulged in a few battles with the Chinese government, and things have escalated quickly in the past few months with local authorities. If the banning of Windows 8 and multiple raids on company premises were not enough, the technology giant’s plan to cut around 4,700 jobs at...

Well, a privileged position to be in, right? Microsoft’s CEO Satya Nadella shocked the world when he announced a few weeks back that a total of 18,000 people would be sent home.
