EMC fires and hires

The firings are happening as a result of Global Restructuring and the hirings coming from the new markets and growth.

Quoting "The Patriot Ledger":

In October 2006, EMC announced 1,250 employees would be let go as part of a restructuring plan, said Michael Gallant, spokesman for the data storage giant. The latest round of layoffs, involving about one-third of those employees, was scheduled to be finished by New Year’s Day.

Gallant would not say how many jobs would be cut at EMC’s headquarters in Hopkinton or at its other offices in Massachusetts. He said EMC employs about 9,000 people in the state. That represents a 270-person increase from the company’s in-state employment level in September 2006.

EMC didn’t target any one piece of its business with its recent layoffs, Gallant said. The company looked at positions it deemed redundant, particularly ‘‘all layers of management’’ and ‘‘general and administrative’’ jobs, he said.

The maker and supplier of data storage equipment and software is expanding and is not laying off any more employees than it had planned in October 2006, Gallant said, although he could not comment about prospective cuts for 2008.
