Netflix is ​​still going through a bad patch

On the other hand, this is not the first time that netflix has to lay off employees due to declining company revenue.

Well, at the beginning of the year, netflix laid off 150 employees in the United States, or 2% of the company’s total workforce.

At the time, netflix stated in a press release the following:

As we explained on earnings, our slowing revenue growth means we also need to slow our cost growth as a business (…) These changes are primarily driven by business needs rather than by individual performances, which makes them particularly difficult, because neither of us wants to say goodbye to such good colleagues. We are working hard to support them in this very difficult transition.

We have also recently discovered thanks to The Wall Street Journal that the company was looking to cut costs in the face of slowing subscriber growth by hiring junior staff, controlling cloud computing costs and even limiting corporate loot.

The situation is therefore not easy for this streaming giant which remains the market leader despite everything.
