Things have not been going well on Google for a long time. A month ago, the tech titan announced a hiring freeze due to the ongoing economic slowdown. Although Google had not officially discussed the layoffs at the time, employees were concerned. The reason for this is also many other big tech companies including Netflix and Microsoft. Microsoft recently laid off about 2000 employees, possibly as a cost-cutting measure.
Last month, Google CEO Eric Schmidt asked employees to increase productivity and asked for suggestions on how to get “better results faster.” Pichai was quoted as saying, “There are legitimate concerns that our total productivity is not where it should be.”
Google recently paused hiring for two weeks to review its workforce and determine its next course of action. Later the company extended the hiring freeze.
