Microsoft has confirmed massive layoffs affecting thousands of positions, according to the Washington Post.

Most of the jobs cut will be outside of the United States, according to the report.

Although Microsoft didn’t give an exact number of jobs, previous reports have put it at around 3,000 positions.

Bloomberg previously reported that the layoffs would be a reorganization of the company to focus on Cloud software.
