Back in July of 2011, Research in Motion slashed 10-percent of its global workforce, laying off 2,000 employees as "a prudent and necessary step for the long term success of the company".
But, it looks like they could be repeating the process according to AllThingsD. They're reporting that RIM will announce another major global restructuring that will include "at least" 2,000 job cuts. A source has told AllThingsD:
RIM has about 16,500 employees worldwide now. That number will be down to 14,500 before the summer's over. ...14,500 or less.
The cuts are expected to not just be a certain section, but company-wide, with everyone from marketing to sales, to legal and operations expecting to have jobs cut. The question is, will this help? Did it help last time? Are RIM cutting the fat from the company, or digging right in and removing the meat?
