Yahoo called this number “misleading”. But layoffs do not seem to be brewing, judging by the increasing number of tips we received.
On 23 November, an informant wrote that the dismissals were “officially happens after Thanksgiving but before Christmas 2010.” Then yesterday, we began to tip the layoffs would begin today. Some group’s products that seem to be the target of cuts include Flickr and Yahoo Groups.
Another anonymous tipster wrote:
Go to work earlier and it seems that all conference rooms reserved and can not find my manager. Layoffs at Yahoo today? If a meeting with flickr early and head of listings in New York and mysterious no people appear Flickr. . . . Weird for the whole team for not showing at the regular meeting important.
And employee self-proclaimed reports of Yahoo Groups:
My team has just been reduced by 22% of Yahoo management are idiots. How do they expect us to meet our targets for 2011 now?
Keep in mind that these tips are anonymous and are nothing more than anecdotal at best. But they suggest that these layoffs may be starting. Yahoo will not confirm or deny anything. A spokesman sent me the following boilerplate declaration:
Yahoo is still evaluating the costs to match the financial goals of the company. Beyond that, we do not comment on rumors or speculation.
