It seems to be happening somewhere between Jan 18-Jan 24.
It seems to be quarterly now.
It would be close to earnings like Oct.
The 1st of January is behind us, if mass layoffs happening what week will they take place? Asking fir a friend.
Lets see if targeted or mass 5 to 10 percent
There is immense pressure on Microsoft to cut costs and headcount is biggest cost. Honestly, placing 5 percent or less on PIP and managing them out might be better than HR doing some random RIF
This is all BS.
Promotions and raises are around the corner (2023).
I’m one of the managers and I can share that anyone with insufficient results is being managed out.
Do you know what groups may be impacted?
Maybe I know because I might be involved in it. Don’t shoot the messenger - believe it or not your call but layoff happening Jan 2023 and lists are prepped and done.
Anyone can say anything on this platform, we don't know who is telling the truth and who is not.
Going to be big? And you know this how?
This next one is going to be big. List already prepared for January, start of FY Q3.
