The former Meta employee, ‘Andi Allen’ expressed her frustration on social media with Facebook’s leadership for miscalculating so severely that they had to lay off thousands of employees.
Recently, Facebook and Instagram parent company Meta announced that it would be cutting 10,000 jobs in its latest round of layoffs. This comes after the company laid off over 11,000 employees the previous year. Andi Allen, a senior technical recruiter at Meta, was also laid off during the second round of layoffs. What is shocking is that she was let go during her maternity leave. Allen wrote a substantial post against Meta’s management that failed to foresee the issues mentioned by Mark Zuckerberg in his memo to the employees.
On the contrary, the Meta board raised the budget of Mark Zuckerberg’s security, from $10 million to $14 million.
It is evident in this post, Meta’s actions have left their employees feeling betrayed and unsupported. Not just this, the news of Meta’s layoff caused concern in the Big Tech industry as many fear an economic downshift.
