Microsoft has cut additional staff from their payroll with the layoffs impacting not only sales but engineering too.
This week, Microsoft has made at least two changes to high-level position at the company with a CVP and the CIO leaving the company.
For the upcoming fiscal year, Microsoft is expected to re-org the sales team and as part of that change, layoffs are expected.
On Monday, Microsoft is expected to layoff around 700 employees but these cuts are not related to the recent LinkedIn acqusition.
Microsoft has announced that they will further cut their employee count by over 2000 staff by the end of fiscal year 2017.
