OPPO is cutting staff shortly after its integration with OnePlus and would be affecting some key areas such as software, although the company has not clarified the situation.
OPPO is presently one of the Android companies in the eye of the storm, and for a long time it has been among the top five mobile manufacturers worldwide, which demonstrates how successful its efforts have been.
The firm recently partnered with OnePlus, one of the company’s most popular and recognized sub-brands. The business is now changing its internal structure and eliminating employees shortly after that news was announced.
OPPO would have cut 20% of staff in some teams
According to Bloomberg, the Chinese company would be carrying out a staff cut that would affect about 20% of its employees in the software and devices teams.
Cuts in this area are possible due to the integration with OnePlus, which will allow them to share resources and equipment in certain regions, resulting in natural duplications that the firm is not interested in maintaining. Although there is no official confirmation about the reasons.
This reduction in personnel may be the result of retrenchment after an accelerated growth strategy, according to Bloomberg. The company is also active in a number of markets, including smartwatches.
In any case, the company has not yet issued any official statement clarifying where it stands, but everything points to cost savings and a mix in some teams with OnePlus staff with whom it can collaborate in key areas.
