How many employees in Robotics Division
Jamie Zhang, a software engineer working at Amazon, reported his connection on LinkedIn and said that he was fired from the company. Apart from this, a post by a former employee also said that the entire robotics team was given a pink chit. According to LinkedIn data, the company’s robotics division employs at least 3,766 people. Business Today could not confirm how many of the 3,766 employees were let go.
Meta and Twitter have also been laid off
In addition, the Wall Street Journal report claimed that the company has already asked employees working in some of its unprofitable units to look for jobs elsewhere. At the same time, Meta and Twitter have also fired a large number of employees. Meta says that it has decided to lay off to reduce the cost of the company. The increased cost is eating away at the profits and thereby reducing the income.
