Apple Lays Off 50 Employees in Enterprise Sales

Posted by · 3111 views
Apple laid off 50 employees yesterday from the enterprise sales division, according to a ValleyWag report. Their tipster maintained that this was not a major layoff.

Perhaps the cuts felt major to workers within Apple's unloved enterprise group. Why is that division getting the business end of cutbacks? The least sexy part of Apple, selling servers and other products to corporate customers, has never gotten much attention inside or outside the company. Steve Jobs has never particularly cared about business customers - in fact, he once ridiculed them as lemmings in an '80s-era Apple ad (see clip above). Even though he's ostensibly on medical leave, the cuts in Apple's enterprise sales are a pretty good sign he still has his hand on the tiller.

Convincing evidence Apple doesn't really care about the business customer. So if you are hoping for more business-like smartphone features on your favorite iPhone toy, better look elsewhere.
