500 layoffs are being reported by WRAL. No breakdowns provided as it relates to location, business unit or function. DCG (Data Center Group) is estimated to have lost about 200 people (out of 1000, approximately 20%). The head of PR in RTP confirmed this - anyhow, for now it's all mostly guessing but at least we have some initial numbers to work with.
I feel the number is a bit bigger than what they are reporting but we'll know soon enough (or not)!
