Today was not a good day to be an employee at website Machinima who laid off almost 10% of their staff just two weeks before Christmas. The layoffs affected the editorial staff. Machinima employees were given no forward notice of their terminations.
To rub salt in the wound, Machinima released an official statement about the matter.
“Today Machinima underwent a reorganization to address its global growth, and this process unfortunately resulted in layoffs. Less than 10% of Machinima’s workforce was effected. Also as part of the restructure Machinima is hiring across key divisions including Sales, Marketing and Product.”
So for all the people that created and edited content for the website take heart, they are hiring new employees to help sell your content.
