The original rumor had Apple canning 200 Beats employees in human resources, and finance, departments where Apple is already well stocked. But the latest news is that the suits in Cupertino have fired five Beats workers due to poor performance. Still, music trade magazine Billboard is reporting that incoming Beats employees are being warned of terminations that could take place in three months to a year in areas like Human Resources, Finance and Legal. An official statement from Apple does mention that some of the job offerings for Beat personnel, are for a limited time.
In addition to Beats co-founders Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre, who both will be given a title and office in Cupertino, Beats Music CEO Ian Rogers will become head of iTunes radio.
