In an effort to restructure the company, Microsoft has announced that it will be cutting 18,000 jobs in the course of the next year. This is the biggest layoff in the company’s history, and it's because Microsoft wants to coordinate its strategy with the newly-purchased Nokia Devices and Services.
CEO Satya Nadella addressed Microsoft's employees in a letter, saying that the changes would bring more productive and effective teams to Microsoft, each moving at its own pace and at different points. Nadella claims that the move is simply a strategic, forward thinking manoeuvre. It will also flatten out hierarchies so that various structured teams could communicate more easily.
Out of the massive 18,000 jobs cut, 12,500 will be professional and factory positions at Nokia. Nadella implied that Microsoft might end the Android-powered X smartphone portfolio, saying, “we plan to shift select Nokia X product designs to become Lumia products running Windows.”
