In recent weeks the internal talks have been about the removal of lawyers of management at Meta. The company took existing management roles and changed to non-management positions as the employees prepared to get demoted.


Facebook generally had never been concerned with cutting costs. With massive growth in the past 20 years. Even the pandemic allowed for Facebook to grow. This can be directly linked to when Apple rolled out is IOS changes costing Meta a $10 billion dollar setback.

The first set of layoffs at Facebook was seen to be a direct approach to correct the stock price. Zuckerberg claimed to be “surprised” by the positive effects of the layoffs. He stated “It’s made information flow through the company better, and it will help us make better products and attract and retain better people. That was honestly a little surprising to me — that as we started digging into this, the company felt better to me.”
