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...

The Chinese Odyssey continues for Microsoft. Since the Nokia acquisition, the technology titan has been gradually cutting jobs and releasing its surplus workforce. No surprises here, considering they got nearly 25,000 employees from the Nokia deal. Microsoft initially projected that they may have to cut no...

Some 3,000 more Microsoft employees have left the building today. Or rather, buildings. The company conducted its third round of job cuts as part of its reorganization process. This has been confirmed by regular Microsoft watcher, Mary Jo Foley, and it appears that support staff is the one most impacted with...

Well, we have official confirmation, people. Microsoft has cut a total of 2,100 jobs today, as part of the previously announced layoff. Inevitable redundancies, as they call are called. Out of these, 747 were in the state of Washington, while the rest of the cuts occur worldwide, in various Microsoft offices...

Redmond is on track to announce its second round of job cuts this week, on September 18 to be precise.

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. These are, easily, the biggest ever layoffs at the software titan. But despite this, it is business as usual at the company, and the...

Layoffs. Wonder what year is this in the Chinese calendar, because whatever the animal, Microsoft sure has had it tough in the country these past few months. And now you can add another issue. Windows 8 is banned on state computers, while the government is investigating the technology titan for possible...

It was about time someone shot it straight. While Steve Ballmer’s reign had its fair share of ups, the way the former Microsoft CEO conducted business during his final few years, left a lot to be desired. He was at the helm when the company initiated the reorganization process, and although it is still going...

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella surprised the world with a massive 18,000 job cut earlier this month, but it appears that this was just the start. The company might announce more layoffs soon.
