    Most of these “Top Companies” you listed were in a much different position in 2008.

    Sometimes, sometimes they increase hiring. Every recession is different.

    Yes there were but don’t recall the magnitude. Bigger issues were the large amounts of hiring freezes. Made it tough for people to get jobs after getting laid off or to find new jobs

    Microsoft laid off a lot of employees in 2009, around 6000 i believe? A lot of them were developers

    Afaik, Google only laid off temporary workers/ contractors. Not a lot of full time employees
