Yahoo Layoffs Commence, What’s the Impact on Sales?

Layoffs of 1,400 Yahoo staffers are expected to begin this morning. As CEO Jerry Yang stated back in October, the reduction will affect about 10 percent of staff with the goal of reducing annual costs from $3.9 billion to less than $3.5 billion.

We at ClickZ are trying to learn as much as we can about who’s being let go — specifically in the company’s sales operation. As you might imagine, standard PR operating procedure at times like this is to share no details directly with the press. That’s where you come in, dear readers.

Are you a media broker at Yahoo, or do you have insight into the company’s sales organization in your capacity as a buyer? We’d be eternally grateful for whatever information you can share. Please reach out to us through our News Tip contact form.
