Citing a Business Insider report, Reuters added that employees across several of Google' teams in its real estate and finance departments have been affected. It further stated that Google's revenue cash operations, business services, and treasury departments are among the impacted finance teams.

As per the report, Ruth Porat, Google's chief financial officer, informed employees via email that part of the restructuring included expanding growth to Bangalore, Mexico City, and Dublin.

In January this year, the tech giant let go of hundreds of employees across multiple teams including engineering, hardware and assistant teams as the company ramps up investment and builds its artificial intelligence offerings. Company CEO Sundar Pichai reportedly told employees at the start of the year to expect more job cuts.
