Thread regarding Microsoft Corp. layoffs

Now Terry is gone - when do WDG layoffs begin ?

Lots of fat In that org. What is it all doing now ? Do they wait until autumn to do the RIF or have Scottgu pull the trigger now.

Totally agree on that. During the 2014 RIF post WDG reorg, I lost 75% of my team on one day, and had to deal with rebuilding the team in a role I no longer believe in. It was super demoralizing, I ended up changing discipline and role. Now I'm happier than ever and wonder why I didn't make the change earlier.

A more creative leader would have kept terry for a while to have him RIF the org, then given him a golden handshake. That way the new leaders would not have to put up with the bad mspoll numbers and unpleasant all hands meetings (but who in Windows knows anything about AI in the cloud etc ?)
