Uber lays off 400 employees from global marketing team

Uber is laying off 400 employees in marketing, about a quarter of the marketing team's global workforce of 1,200 people

NEW YORK -- Uber is laying off 400 employees in marketing, about a quarter of the marketing team's global workforce of 1,200 people.

The move, announced Monday, follows a leadership shake-up in June when CEO Dara Khosrowshahi combined the company's marketing, communications and policy teams.

Khosrowshahi installed Jill Hazelbaker to lead up marketing and public affairs in June. On Monday they announced a more centralized structure for marketing and said they want to build a consistent brand narrative across audiences, products and regions.
