I had started to back off on talking about layoffs, but this one had to be covered. With Microsoft reporting 28% year-over-year growth with LinkedIn in their last earnings report, it is disheartening to see them slice nearly 1000 jobs. So what if they can keep their company tech devices (I think I’d rather have a job than a $500 smartphone). It’s also concerning when this is a time when job hunters need a good place to go online to search… like LinkedIn. Ouch. Seems to be tone-deaf to me…

The laid-off employees can keep their company-provided devices.
