BlackBerry Lays Off Another 100 Employees in Waterloo

BlackBerry Canada

News of another 100 laid off BlackBerry employees just hit Waterloo today. 570News is reporting that BlackBerry has confirmed another 100 layoffs on top of the previous 250. We are hearing that these are also in product testing areas so it could be BlackBerry is just outsourcing that. Either way BlackBerry had the following statement:

“as previously stated, we are in the second phase of our transformation plan. As such, this week’s employee reductions, demonstrates another step forward to scale our company correctly for new opportunities in mobile computing. Our evolution as a company is ongoing and is in no way easy, but we are realistic about what is required to move our transformation forward in a timely manner. We will be as transparent as possible as our plans evolve.”

  1. I wish they would do all the layoffs at once. Every time this sort of news hits it perpetuates the feeling the company is going out of business.

  2. Fully agree.
    Despite the fact they have Billions in cash and no debt.
