Recent Questions about Layoffs at Microsoft

  • How are layoffs handled in the Engineering department at Microsoft?
    General layoffs in engineering are very rare. There are occasionally teams that become obsolete for one reason or another but normally, those are handled through reassignment. In the rare case of a layoff, people are generally given time and resources to find another job either internally or externally. Most of the people that are layed off are hired into another internal group. In the rare case someone is actually layed off they are generally given severance.

  • How are layoffs handled in the Sales department at Microsoft?
    I have no reference point on this subject within Microsoft. Cisco would lay off non performers and bring in new blood. I think Microsoft would be more likely to shift people to other positions before laying off.
