Confabulations and conversations on Twitter are saying that Google is laying some of their engineers and employees, even if some of them are on critical projects. That means Google is optimizing its workforce and switching over to cost cutting exercises-Layoffs being one of them.
One can not take this conversation seriously as there is no official statement from anyone yet, but responses to MaryHodder have been confirmative, and the dialogues are stating that 4 to 5 employees are pressurized to move on!
Here is the description of the Google Layoffs from MaryHodderĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s Twitter thread :
Talkng to friend laid off from Google Friday. Others in their eng. gp as well. They donĂ˘â‚¬â„˘t want to discuss publicly, but R ok w. my telling.
We think Goog is quietly laying ppl off so as not to alert press. Mgrs have mandate to reduce headcnt, no matter how critical the project.
Full time eng on a critical path project. so were others.. 4-5 yr employees.
Oddly, before this wk 2 othr Goog frnds told me uncomfortably they want to leave..was shocked, they have great jobs, but pressure that Google just wasnĂ˘â‚¬â„˘t fun place anymore, but now think it could be really unpleasantly bad for ppl. donĂ˘â‚¬â„˘t know, just anecdotal.
These ppl sounded pretty uncomfortable. working 18 hr days .. if you have the big stock, might make you want to go.
