Formerly laid-off Amazon employee returns to company in senior role after 4 months

Cipriani shared on LinkedIn her delightful news of rejoining Amazon's social marketing team, the same team she previously belonged to. However, she has taken on a new role as the product marketing manager, now focusing on a different line of business


In a heartwarming turn of events, a former Amazon employee has returned to the company, rejoining her old team after only four months. Paige Cipriani, a female employee who was laid off by the tech giant in January, has triumphantly come back as the product marketing manager.

Expressing her joy on LinkedIn, Cipriani shared the news of her return, stating that she has started back at Amazon on the Social Marketing team, the same team she was a part of before her layoff. However, she now holds the position of product marketing manager, focusing on a different line of business. Cipriani expressed her gratitude for being back on such a great team and looked forward to the new journey ahead.

Earlier, in January, Cipriani had candidly shared her disappointment about being laid off, along with 18,000 other employees affected by Amazon’s layoffs. Despite her sadness, she expressed gratitude for the time spent at the company, the connections made, and the knowledge gained.

Unfortunately, another employee, Leyla Badalova, who had recently returned from her maternity leave, faced a similar fate. As an internal recruiter at Amazon, Badalova announced on LinkedIn that she had been laid off from her role. However, she maintained a positive outlook and remained motivated to explore new career opportunities.

Adding to these events, Amazon recently carried out another round of layoffs, impacting around 500 employees across various departments in India. This downsizing initiative is part of CEO Andy Jassy’s broader workforce reduction plan, which aims to affect approximately 9,000 individuals.
