Google, Seagate Cutting Staff, Microsoft Testing the Waters

2009 certainly isn’t the year for economical prowess even in the thriving world of technology. Even the untouchable Google is apparently taking a hit now that it is cutting the jobs of 100 recruiters as well as closing several satellite engineering offices. Seagate seems to be taking a somewhat heftier blow but grinning and bearing it as they cut 2,950 (6%) jobs worldwide as well as reducing executive pay up to 25%. Microsoft hasn’t announced any doom just yet and hopes to avoid layoffs, but if it means staying afloat, the company could announce another chunk of the world unemployed by next Thursday.
