Scuttlebutt indicates early May for Cloud+AI to purge folks brought over from UniStore. Foreign subsidiaries already getting the purge news. Redmond next. Employees are being encouraged to job hunt "sooner rather than later" by decent managers. Probelm is many teams that will be hiring won't be until the FY turns over.
Cloud+AI held onto services from UniStore that are not a part of their charter specifically to use as purge fodder. Profitable customer facing services are at risk.
All this after record earnings.
Here's to hoping the rumors are wrong. But I don't think they are.
