Microsoft layoffs hit Dynamics AX, GP teams
Microsoft's layoffs last week have reportedly hit the Dynamics AX and GP teams across multiple groups and locations.
Microsoft Dynamics AX teams that have been impacted include the "customer programs" (a.k.a. "feedback") group, as well as people working in documentation and user experience, according to a person familiar with specific employee layoffs. The AX layoffs covered at least the Fargo and Redmond campuses.
A number of people on the Dynamics GP development team in Fargo were also let go, according to another source with contacts still working in the Fargo office. Many of those GP team members reportedly had roles involving program and product management.
UPDATE, Oct 8 2014: Another source with knowledge puts the GP layoffs at about one third of the team in Fargo.
