Motorola closing

Motorola Layoffs 2018

Motorola Mobility (Lenovo) just tapped 50% of their Chicago workforce on the shoulder to let them know they are being laid off. Their expected last day of work is April 6, 2018. Sad... and to think this was my dream job getting out of college.

I'm curious the history of the layoffs..

I thought when Motorola split, the mobility side had roughly 30K people (I could be wrong). Then you got bought by Google, who then sold you to Lenova. Does anyone know the layoff history after the split?

More layoffs in Moto (2016)

Buckle up, it started again. Lenovo just announced it will be cutting off hundreds of jobs (up to 1100), and Motorola Mobility will be impacted the most. Some say that about 700 jobs in Moto will be cut, that's more than 50% of its current workforce.
