Microsoft may have completed its 18,000 job cuts with latest layoffs

A new report says Microsoft laid off 'hundreds' of employees this week. They are all part of the company's previously announced plans to cut 18,000 team members from its work force and could be the last ones Microsoft makes as part of those plans.

The layoffs were first reported by GeekWire, who added that most of the layoffs came from Microsoft's IT departments. A company spokesperson confirmed that Microsoft did indeed lay off some workers this week but a specific number was not revealed.

ZDNet received its own statement from Microsoft, where a spokesperson said, "We expect this to be the last of the anticipated broad cuts as part of the restructuring plan announced last July." The company previously set the end of June 2015 as its own deadline for completing the cuts.
