IBM is preparing to cut more jobs after acquiring the consulting arm of PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC).
Unnamed sources quoted by the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) have said that about 4,000 jobs will be cut in the fourth quarter, with the final count depending on the health of the technology consulting sector.
A reduction of 4,000 jobs would represent more than 10 per cent of the 30,000 workers at PwC - although some cuts could also come from IBM.
Big Blue is cutting its own 150,000-strong global services unit by more than 14,000 this year, part of a lay-off of more than 15,000 staff.
Lay-offs could be reduced by people leaving PwC before the acquisition occurs, the WSJ reported. But likely candidates have yet to be identified.
