As Beats Music transitions into Apple, the inevitable loss-of-jobs is coming to light. Apple commented:
We’re excited to have the Beats team join Apple, and we have extended job offers to every Beats employee. Because of some overlap in our operations, some offers are for a limited period and we’ll work hard during this time to find as many of these Beats employees as we can another permanent job within Apple.
Some positions have been terminated while others have been offered positions through January 2015.
CEO Ian Rogers and Trent Reznor (Chief Creative Officer) will be making the transition to Apple once the deal is finalized later this fiscal quarter. It is said the Beats Music engineers will continue working from their Southern California offices.
