Personnel changes in the largest IT and media companies in Russia in two weeks

    The past two weeks (November 16-29) were not oversaturated with personnel shifts. Despite the fact that there were few changes in the staff of the largest Russian IT companies and media resources, they attracted the attention of the public.

    Someone left the company for their own projects, someone moved to another team to “re-invent everything”, and someone decided to start a little “project of the second half of life”.

    But it also happens that everyone expects the resignation of a major specialist, and he can not leave.
