Thread regarding Microsoft Corp. layoffs

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, relocation costs, then severance - all within 12 months. Over and over. A model of inefficiency........

You're lucky if you only get reorg'd one a year. There are years where it can happen every quarter.

As @xgrv and @1pue said below you need to move to Azure and you'll be good.

I would not feel comfortable being in any other group.

Unless you are in the azure biz, I wouldn't get too comfortable. Almost everything else is in sustain which means cut headcount and drive down costs.

This is the rules of the game for working at Microsoft, welcome to the family. L65-67 and even CVP are no longer safe, everyone could be on the chopping board. Last time I checked, Amazon, Boeing, Starbucks, and others still hiring.
