Its crazy how much Balllmer did in his last year as a lame duck CEO.There is a great blog post on this from a Microsoft employee who survived the 2009 layoffs.http://minimsft.blogspot.co.uk/2014/07/18000-microsoft-jobs-...Prolonged layoffs are bad, Microsoft needs to get this done fast. "Most" in the next six months? That's terrible. Leaves a lot of people in the lurch for a long time. He suggests it should be completed by the end of the month which seems absurd, but within 3 months is certainly plausible. I've been at a company during transition times and it sucks. Productivity and morale go through the floor, the best employees leave on their own volition. The longer it lasts, the worse it is.Looks like Asha is getting the axe and most layoffs are from the Nokia side which is not entirely surprising. Still leaves more than 5000 layoffs at Microsoft, which means there are 30,000 or more Microsoft employees with a whole lot of uncertainty. Amazon recruiters must have huge grins on their face right now.
