Microsoft to Downsize within a Week’s Time; Biggest Restructuring in its History

Bill GatesMicrosoft is about to undergo a massive number of layoffs. This news comes about after the huge enterprise’s acquisition of Nokia’s Oyj. 

The company heads have decided that it is time for some lean thinking and so much of the extra staff that weren’t exactly contributing much to the firm are to be given the pink slip. 

Besides, these are times of troubles. The economic crunch is not over just yet. The leaked news comes from some very reliable insiders in the company. 

The job cuts will occur in the Nokia division of Microsoft. They will also be taking place in the commercial, marketing and technical departments. And the deadline is a mere week. 

Nearly 6000 employees got laid off about half a decade ago. But the current layoffs will probably dwarf those earlier golden handshakes. The full plans have not been hatched just yet but they are in the pipeline. 

The Chief, Satya Nadella is on a mission. The focus will be on cloud equipment, smart phones and fecundity software. Nadella has been the replacement for Steve Ballmer

"The announcement would come one week after Chief Executive Officer Satya Nadella issued his first company mission statement, calling for greater emphasis on mobile devices, cloud-computing and productivity software.

"In the July 10 memo, which also called for Microsoft to become more focused and efficient, Nadella, who took over from Steve Ballmer in February, said he would provide more specifics on implementation later this month," states Bloomberg.

The task at hand is to make the company more efficacious and sharper in its vision. Today, Microsoft has 127,104 employees. It is a large-scale corporate powerhouse where everybody thinks big. 

At least 30,000 extra employees have been taken on after the Nokia merger. Crucial changes in the structure of the organization had to occur after the integration of the Finnish giant into Microsoft’s basic cytoplasm (so to say). 

After Satya revealed his memorandum, he was questioned regarding the job cuts. His only answer was that he would speak on that matter soon. 

For now, the Sword of Damocles hangs over the heads of so many employees of Microsoft. It is the way of all multinational corporations to employ the services of those people they need till they are defunct and then discard them like so much refuse. 

This is a very sad fact of postmodern life and it reeks of disregard for human rights. The callous treatment meted out to employees by relieving them of their jobs on such short notice is a shame indeed.
