Google is cutting about 1% of its staff
The search engine company Google is planning to cut nearly 200 marketing and sales jobs in its second set of lay-offs this year.
Google blamed the cuts on having grown very quickly, which meant it had over-invested in some areas as well as "creating overlapping organisations".
The cuts represent less than 1% of the 20,200 people employed by Google.
Earlier this year, the company decided to lay off 100 of its recruiters because it was taking on fewer people.
"Google has grown very quickly in a very short period of time," Google's Omid Kordestani said on the company's official blog.
"When companies grow that quickly it's almost impossible to get everything right and we certainly didn't."
Google said that staff affected would be given time to find other jobs within the organisation or severance packages if they had to leave.
