Topline: Uber laid off 400 employees from its marketing department Monday as the company contends with worries about slowing growth and internal dissatisfaction on the marketing team, the Los Angeles Times reported.
Uber did not immediately respond to request for comment from Forbes.
Key Background: The layoffs come after Uber’s chief marketing officer Rebecca Messina stepped down last month as the company combined its marketing, public relations and policy teams under senior vice president of communications and public policy Jill Hazelbaker.
Tangent: Lyft’s COO Jon McNeill also said he was leaving the company Monday, Bloomberg reported. Lyft shares fell more than 2% following the announcement.
