Microsoft layoffs coming 2019

If you are not aligned with Azure keep your eyes open. I have no insider info and this is all just my gut feeling but overall the shifts in the market and on the consumer/business side are tectonic. I feel there is a lot of layoffs coming in 2019... 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

Thoughts on Working at GitHub?

Thinking about applying to a job at GitHub, but they were acquired by Microsoft and I don't see a separate forum for Git. I know of some friends that would do the same in different areas. We don't know how Microsoft handles acquisitions (strip them... read more

Somethings up in CSS

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?

Great company

Every July, regardless of performance, employees come to work on edge wondering if they’ll be part of the “reorganization.” What a neat place to work if you are supporting a family. Cannot believe the strategy of paying a headhunter fees, training... read more

International Sales on the chopping block

This is in line with what transpired back in 2017 - as more sales is pushed online and as cloud offerings continue to cut into legacy channels - we'll see more and more sales folks leave the company. Most legacy companies have done the same (e.g.... read more

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

Wonder if the office in downtown Portland will get hit; such a disgrace about Wilsonville - so many bright, hardworking, and innovative people there.

After 15yrs, bad review, preparing for exit...

I provide this as a cautionary tale to those at Msft who are getting older (say 40+), have been with the company for a while, and have drawn the wrong card when it comes to projects they get assigned to work on. If you think you are more than one... read more

More layoffs incoming?

It seems that Microsoft is planning to gift us with more changes and more job cuts. We will know more after the quarterly earnings call, I guess, but I am not optimistic... read more

Time to become a "v-"!

I'm seeing a lot of level 65+ managers are doing absolutely nothing, either not show up to work or went out fishing. They have been with MSFT for 10+ years and no way can find another job will pay what they are making now. Even you survived from last... read more
