Mark Zuckerberg had already warned that “the headwinds are fierce” and will affect the company’s own activity. With the hiring of new employees frozen, the situation seems to be even worse.

Team managers will already be flagging potential people to be fired.

It was on June 30th that Meta employees came across an email that alerted them to the challenges the company will face in the coming months. The second half of the year will not be easy and the company has already prepared employees for “serious times” and “headwinds”.

We need to execute the new project flawlessly in a slower growing environment where teams shouldn't expect massive inflows of new engineers and budgets.

Now developments on this matter may be even less favourable. According to The Information, some Meta employees could lose their jobs as the company prepares to face these tougher times.

Maher Saba, vice president of Remote Presence at Meta, instructed team managers to identify people who "need support" by the end of the day on Monday for a possible departure from the company. The newspaper also mentions that it was mentioned that those with low performance should be nominated "who cannot get on the right path".

Thus, the employees who are appointed will have the opportunity to strive to achieve better results, or leave the company. The truth is that this is just an assumption, since from Meta there has been no official statement to that effect.

A person close to the company told The Washington Post that workers are concerned that this plan with team managers will be used for a wave of mass layoffs. Apparently, in the note left to the team managers it is indicated that:

"If a direct report is slacking or underperforming, they are not who we need; they are failing this company. As a manager, you cannot allow anyone to be neutral or negative to the Goal.
