Layoffs Hit Maxim

The staffers of Maxim has been hit by some layoffs that were deemed “corporate restructuring.” TechCrunch reports that six staffers — including Senior Editor Seth Porges — were cut in the morning:

We’ve confirmed that many employees were suddenly laid off this morning in what management called a “corporate restructuring”. Departments that were reaped include editorial, web, and photo… We originally published told us about half of Maxim team was laid off but we’ve now confirmed it the cuts were confined to the web, editorial, and photo teams.

Maxim only employed about 13 full time staffers, so that is one hell of a “restructuring.”
