Scot Wingo comments on the possible eBay layoffs on his blog. The layoff is speculation by investment research firm, Wedge Partners.
But Scot reveals some info details on where the 16,000 eBay employees work in his post. I recall in 2005 at eBay Live! they said there were 10,000 employees. So they grew by 60% even though the eBay platform has be flat for 3 years?
Personally, I think they have some fat to trim. At the eBay Dev Conf, there were numerous eBay and PayPal new employees asking if they could assist me. When I said “yes”, and stated the details of my question, they couldn’t understand my question nor direct me to someone who could answer my question.
I don’t think we would notice a thing should eBay make the cut.
