Alphabet wants to cut around 12,000 roles

Alphabet and Google CEO Sundar Pichai announced in an email to employees that the company plans to cut around 12,000 jobs.

“I have some difficult news to share. We have decided to reduce our workforce by approximately 12,000 positions,” Pichai wrote. “They span alphabet, product areas, functions, tiers and regions,” he noted. “In the last two years we have experienced periods of dramatic growth. To accommodate and drive that growth, we hired for a different economic reality than today.”

The announcement comes amid a broader trend of large companies shedding jobs.

Microsoft chairman and CEO Satya Nadella said in a note to employees that the company would cut 10,000 jobs.

“Today we are making changes that will result in a 10,000 reduction in our total workforce through the end of Q3 FY23,” Nadella noted in the message On Wednesday. “This represents less than 5 percent of our total workforce, with some notifications occurring today. It is important to note that while we are cutting positions in some areas, we will continue to hire in key strategic areas.”

Amazon is also cutting jobs.

“In November, we shared the difficult decision to eliminate a number of positions in our Devices and Books businesses, and also announced a voluntary downsizing offer for some employees in our People, Experience, and Technology (PXT) organization. I also shared that we were not done with our annual planning process and that I expected there would be further job cuts in early 2023,” noted Amazon CEO Andy Jassy in a May 4 statement message to employees. “Between the cuts we made in November and the ones we’re sharing today, we plan to cut just over 18,000 roles. Several teams are affected; however, the majority of role eliminations are happening in our Amazon Stores and PXT organizations.”
