Google haven't done too much with their Motorola acquisition, but it seems like things are about to change. Considering Motorola has quite the workforce, as well as the capability to manufacture devices on a massive scale, to their own specifications, Google have been sitting on this immense power.




But, it looks like 20% of the acquired company's workforce is being cut, leading to around 4,000 job losses. This is on top of the closure of 94 offices, too. The New York Times has reported that the Mountain View-based company has sliced 40% of Motorola's vice presidents, so it's not just the blue collar workers redoing their resumes.


Google are probably retooling the company after the acquisition, so there was always the fact of job losses.
