Dynamics Layoffs Took Place This Week.

The axe fell on Monday. I do not have exact numbers and I've seen multiple posts claiming different numbers on Blind, so really cannot even nail an average (#s are all over the place). Anyhow, cuts were on 1/14 and I think they are done for now - I... read more

L62 offer?

Is this out of whack - this is what I've got offered: L62, Base @ $140K, $12.5K RSU per year (50K for 4 years) and a 20K sign on bonus. I was expecting more but the recruiter seems to be fairly firm and is indicating that this is not negotiable. Do I... read more

Not sure what this new re-organization is about but people are being moved around in CSS and also let go this week and very quietly. Everything is being handled in very bizarre way from the top down.

latest riffs - which teams were impacted most?

Curious... across MS... which teams were impacted the most by layoffs. My team was told partner management focus is decreasing, which means PMAs are affected. And why is North Dakota impacted so strongly?

More WDG fun..

With the demise of the inbox win10 apps, and the shift to web frameworks and edge - I would be worried if I was working on the UWP / Xaml side of the world. So many conflicting frameworks - most devs would rather target xplat c# or html5 for iOS... read more

New RIF on our way?

I would imagine come July we will see a bunch of RIF going on as the feet on the ground are swapped out for new. WDG is fat with headcount that at this point has no purpose and makes no sense. Some will be sent on a death march toward cloud to see... read more
