Massive cuts to Qlik R&D this past week worldwide. Many good people lost their jobs, while many incompetent people kept their jobs. Qlik had a chance to trim the fat and completely missed the mark.
It's not just sales and marketing - layoffs are company wide - including research & development departments. Company is doing well financially but greedy Thoma Bravo owners want more profit. Many good people gone throughout the company in latest round of layoffs.
I was only there for 6 months and told I would be safe. Laid off nearly 60% of the company worldwide I heard with more to come. And announcing the new CEO the next day?? Gonna assume they laid off marketing too with that announcement.
Probably prepping for sales to new owner this year.
2018 Go to market: FIRE EVERYTHING
With the SKO underway, I am sure everyone is fired up!
Vancouver office has closed, one of the hardest working groups of individuals. End of an era is correct.
The end of an era
15% of total workforce laid off globally in restructuring.
Word is the Vancouver office was closed. Terrible.
Not the best place to be right now... sad. A lot of good people there.
And they announce a new CEO today. Who is the marketing genius over there?
Word is more than 300 were let go yesterday. I was let go at the end of October after only 10 months. Good times.
I have heard the same. Company has descended fast, so you'd expect it no? Probably prepping for a sale.
