Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella announced today that the company will be laying off 18,000 employees over the next year, the largest round of cutbacks in Microsofts history. For anyone who loses their job, thats painful news — but in the context of big layoffs at some of Redmonds peers, Nadellas move is also quite severe. We stacked up the job cuts that have taken place at Microsoft, which were principally targeting the companys Mobile division and the employees it took on when it acquired Nokia. We compared that to the cuts made by Google across Motorola Mobility and layoffs at HP, Intel, and BlackBerry since 2011.
