Now this is really bad news for the Microsoft employees that yesterday Microsoft have officially confirmed that they will cutoff the jobs of the 18,000 employees over next 12 months. This would be the biggest cutoff made by the Software giants firm.

In the Announcement Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella says that, the bulk of layoff count 12,500, would come from Nokia Device developer and Service. Microsoft have acquired Nokia in $7.2 billion this year. On the count of 12,500 employees both professional and factory workers were there.

The rumors of the cutting off was from earlier but with the yesterday announcement made is confirmed. Last week, Nadella issued a longer memo to employees outlining the company’s new ambition and “core” for the full-year of 2015.  Microsoft is already “moving” to reduce its workforce by 13,000 and Nadella said the “vast majority” of affected employees will be notified in the next six months.

With the cut off announcement Nadella also added-
“In addition, we plan to shift select Nokia X product designs to become Lumia products running Windows.” “My promise to you is that we will go through this process in the most thoughtful and transparent way possible,” he said. “We will offer severance to all employees impacted by these changes, as well as job transition help in many locations, and everyone can expect to be treated with the respect they deserve for their contributions to this company.”

This means that soon Nokia will be diminished and Nokia will be named as Microsoft phone.
