With worsening economy, do you think Microsoft will mass layoff like 2009 since they will have a great excuse?

Anonymous, to assume over 50s don't understand the new gaming is absurd and ageist. Just stop. I've worked in gaming for 30 years. Most of the people I know are in thier 50s and they get the new games.

Age discrimination like any other discrimination will be met with a lawsuit. Google and Apple were already sued for this. Assuming anything about someone because they are in a certain group will be met with a lawsuit.It's not ok to judge.

Yes, they will have some great excuses to do some large layoffs and get rid of some of the less driven/passionate, yet expensive people. Microsoft is a frustrating company to work for due to its size and complexity, and many people are worn out, but staying there because it's comfy and they are well paid/have good benefits.

I am an analyst working in the UK office, I've been asked to put a list all employees over the age of 50 that earn over £100k. I didn't ask why, but it is strictly confidential, not to even report to the UK headcount, this is strictly going to corporate.

I know the company is going to pivot towards the Metaverse through its acquisition of Activision and an ad-based model through our gaming division, I can only conclude they want to reduce costs from their other businesses by purging over 50s who are not really the type that would understand newer technology or play games.

Probably. Microsoft has had a layoff pretty much every year for the past 5 years, no mass layoffs though. However, yes I do think mass layoffs will hit in 2023. Majority of employees like 90 percent should survive but it will be stressful.
