160 jobs at risk across Sony Europe

"SCEE has successfully faced a number of challenges throughout its history to become a leader of the videogame industry -- however our industry is in the middle of a period of transition where some of the fundamentals of our business are changing," the memo states.

The e-mail, which was leaked from an anonymous employee within the company, states that "[the company's] cost base needs to be significantly reduced", and that job losses will be a necessity to "streamline and strengthen [their] business operations".

The story is too old to be commented.

It is apparent that most here do not work for a large organization and especially a Japanese organization. Most large organizations around the world are analyzing and reducing their manpower in areas where they are excessive. That is a good business strategy and part of the Lean culture that was taught by Demming and adopted by the Japanese. If your company isn't doing it look for another company.

Sony is not Ford or GM that said they are laying off 30,000 salary jobs and closing 16 plants. Even if they did they did (Ford and GM) are changing the old way of doing business and restructuring their business model to be more adaptavie to customer demand instead of overproducing.

160 of 158,500 is rough .01% of their total staff.

I think if they only get rid of the following 4 jokers at sony then there would not be need to layoff anyone else. The names are not given in full to hide these idiots identities:

1. Kaz
2. Ken
3. Phil
4. Jack

EDIT: LOL...I will say it for you RIIIIIIIIIIIIGEEE RAAAAAAAAACEEEEEEEEEEEEER...
