Among the job cuts so far: Amazon has eliminated a "number of positions across our Devices and Books businesses, and also announced a voluntary reduction offer for some employees in our People, Experience, and Technology (PXT) organization," Jassy wrote.
Signs of trouble arrived in early November 2022 -- when Amazon paused hiring across the company's corporate workforce in November 2022. The pause surfaced amid weaker-than-expected Amazon Q3 revenues for 2022.
