Pandora Young of Fishbowl LA is reporting that there have been major layoffs at Enterpreneur magazine and its Web site.
Young writes, “Irvine-based Entrepreneur Magazine and the Entrepreneur.com website have seen their editorial staff decimated this week. We hear from former employees that the layoffs include the executive editor, the managing editor, the online editor, an associate editor, the special projects editor, a staff writer and 2 editorial assistants. Who’s left?
“The company had already suffered a number of layoffs last August, which an Entrepreneur press release described as a ‘reorganization of its editorial department as part of its strategy to combine the company’s print and online content development teams.’ Sounds like more work, less money to us.”
