Pillar Data ditches staffers, shrugs
Ain't no thing
Pillar Data has fired some of its workforce, but it's no big deal according to the company.
ESG's senior analyst and co-founder Steve Duplessie revealed the news in a tweet late yesterday, saying: "Looks like Pillar canned a bunch of folks. Unfortunately predictable" — implying that the firm was downsizing in response to difficulties.
Pillar's PR director Chris Drago said this was not the case: "Pillar is hiring right now. The company is growing." It's "not at all true" that the company is in trouble, and it's always evaluating its staff and their performance, and skills mix, ensuring that its resources are aligned with its strategy for growth.
We understand that fewer than five people were let go. ®
