Google Job Cuts 2024: Veteran Engineer’s Positive Outlook
Google employee Kevin Bourrillion, with a commendable 19-year stint at the company, recently faced an unexpected layoff, prompting him to share his thoughts on social media. Despite the challenges, Bourrillion expressed a positive outlook, stating that the layoff is fine for him as he had been seeking a change for a long time. He emphasized his eagerness to explore new pursuits, including cycling, reading, drum lessons, travel, and spending time with his family.
Bourrillion’s departure aligns with Alphabet Inc.’s recent layoffs in its digital assistant, hardware, and engineering teams. A Google spokesperson mentioned that organizational changes aimed at efficiency and resource alignment to product priorities led to these layoffs throughout the second half of 2023. Affected employees, including those from the Google Assistant and augmented reality hardware teams, have the opportunity to apply for open positions within Google. This information sheds light on the broader context of Bourrillion’s departure within the company’s strategic restructuring efforts.
