Switchzilla's Customer Experience division experiences brunt of HR's 'limited restructuring'

Exclusive Cisco has confirmed to The Register it launched a round of layoffs on Monday, effectively slashing its Customer Experience (CX) team, after insiders alerted us to the cuts.

Between 200 and 300 jobs have at least been axed at Cisco CX, one Reg reader told us, along with up to 10 per cent of another division – understood to be the Cloud Platforms and Solutions Group – that spans Bangalore and the USA. Folks in the Global Architecture and Technology Services wing are also among those hit. Most of the layoffs hit permanent “blue badge” employees rather than “red badge” contractors.

Those numbers match discussions at TheLayoff.com, which earlier tweeted that it had seen a “very large traffic spike on our Cisco layoffs discussion page.”

One poster, apparently from Cisco CX, claimed: "Our entire 200-300 person team received a one-to-many invite from our VP to find out everyone was being let go. Figured the news couldn't be too bad since everyone was on the invite but that changed fast in the first minute of the call.
