More layoffs at T-Mobile, engineering this time
Additional layoffs are happening at T-Mobile, this time in the engineering division of the Bellevue-based wireless company, according to several employees.
After quietly whittling 300 to 400 jobs from the marketing and operations groups at headquarters over the past three weeks, T-Mobile last week confirmed the layoffs.
The extent of the latest layoffs is unclear. Several employees told me that the cuts affected a range of employees — from administrative assistants to project managers and above — in Bellevue and at regional offices around the country.
A T-Mobile spokesman declined to comment on the latest layoffs. Instead he reiterated the company’s previous statement, which said “we are making some operational changes to better align our business with our new strategy and position T-Mobile for growth.”
