Google To Cut More Motorola Jobs Around The World

Posted on Oct 5 2012 - 4:55am by Editorial Staff

With reports earlier that Google’s Motorola Mobility that company bought in May will see a major restructuring with a 20 percent cut to its workforce unit, closing to a third of its 94 offices worldwide. But now, according to Financial Times, the search giant expanding the number of jobs to be cut around the world and has raised the projected negative profit hit to $300 million for the quarter. The publication says that the latest addition is because of “additional geographic regions outside of the US.”

Motorola’s new CEO earlier said:  “We’re excited about the Smartphone business,” said Mr. Woodside, who previously led Google’s sales and operations for the Americas. “The Google business is built on a wired model, and as the world moves to a pretty much completely wireless model over time, it’s really going to be important for Google to understand everything about the mobile consumer.”
