Technology consulting firm Razorfish Inc. said Monday it has cut 400 jobs, or 21 percent of its workforce.

This is the second round of job cuts at Razorfish in recent months–In October the firm fired about 6 percent of its workers after a companywide performance review.

The company is consolidating accounting, human resources, and information services. Razorfish’s stock was down nearly 8 percent Monday at $1.81 per share.
