Software giant Adobe has apparently fired 100 employees from its Sales department. This makes Adobe one of many tech companies slimming down in recent weeks.
Employees affected by the layoffs were allegedly given the opportunity to migrate to other positions within the company. Bloomberg reports that the decision included shifting “some employees to positions that support critical initiatives” and cutting “a small number” of other jobs.
In a company the size of Adobe, 100 employees is but a drop in the ocean. However, it is worth noting that even a gigantic brand such as Adobe is not completely bulletproof.
However, Adobe has disputed that there are any problems, saying, “Adobe is not doing companywide layoffs, and we are still hiring for critical roles.”
In November alone, nearly 50 Bay Area-based companies announced layoffs of at least 35,073 people. It appears that Adobe is aligning with the general belt-tightening in the tech industries amid the slightly uncertain economic climate.
