The roles of laid-off staff range from customer success and channel managers to solutions engineering. One affected employee contacted UC Today, claiming that as much as 20 percent of Talkdesk’s workforce could be impacted, but this figure has not been confirmed. Talkdesk has been contacted for comment.
Many of the posts on LinkedIn paint Talkdesk as a good place to work and praise the company for the way it has handled the layoffs.
