In a sales and marketing overhaul, Microsoft to cut up to 4,000 jobs

Microsoft is overhauling its big sales and marketing organisation in a move that will cut 3,000 to 4,000 jobs, mostly outside the United States. A Microsoft spokesperson confirmed that “roles will be eliminated” and that most of them will be abroad, but he declined to be specific.

The precise number is uncertain partly because in some countries, especially in Europe, labour laws require negotiations. The possible total was described by a person familiar with Microsoft’s plans, who was not authorised to speak on.
