software engineer wrote a touching post
Mounika Ji, an Indian-American software engineer who was fired after Spotify laid off employees, has written a very touching post on LinkedIn. Monika was working with the company for the last one and a half years. In his post, he emphasized how difficult it is not to know the reason for being fired from the company. He wrote “I don’t think I have the heart to write this yet that yesterday was my last day on Spotify. It seems like a bad dream that I should wake up from. I was waiting for an e-mail saying that it was in error.
Question raised for not giving reason
The software engineer, in his LinkedIn post, questioned why he was not told the reason for his termination. However, she also wrote that she has only 60 days to stay in the US and find a new job to maintain her visa status. “It was my first day on Spotify and I was in awe of how my journey has brought me here,” she wrote along with a picture.
what the company said
Commenting on the changing dynamics of the organization, the CEO of the company said that “a one-on-one interaction will be held with all the affected employees over the next few days. While I believe this decision is the right one for Spotify. Let us tell you that in October last year, Spotify had shut down 11 original podcasts from its in-house studio as a part of cost cutting. At the same time, the company is again laying off employees to reduce expenses.
