Google executives are telling their employees to shape up or ship out, warning that layoffs are coming if results don’t meet expectations.
Employees who work in the Google Cloud sales department said that senior leadership told them that there will be an “overall examination of sales productivity and productivity in general.”
If third quarter results “don’t look up, [then] there will be blood on the streets,” according to a message conveyed to the sales team. The warning was first reported by Insider.
Employees told the news site that they are fearful of layoffs after the company quietly extended its hiring freeze this month without making an announcement.
The Post has sought comment from Google.
Google CEO Sundar Pichai told his employees in an all hands meeting late last month that they needed to improve their focus and productivity due to fierce economic headwinds that have forced widespread belt-tightening all throughout the technology sector.
