Microsoft US Sales Organization (MSUS) in Global Sales, Marketing and Operations. Started back in May 2019 is rolling out and ongoing as Q4 closes. This is typical Microsoft to purge 20% based on stack ranking at end of fiscal year.

Microsoft is targeting older (50+ yo), tenured, Level 63-64 with over 10 years at company, and many who have medical/physical disabilities.

What do you expect from a CEO who is a self proclaimed Marxist. Hopefully talent in the job market will take notice of MSFT's discriminatory practices.

This push makes way to bring in more H1B visa indentured servants at a low cost to back fill US FTEs and bringing in more contractors staffed with H1B visa indentured servants working out of Costa Rica and Canada.

I heard few from Dublin as well, wondering its common these days in Microsoft to let go people just like that
