Meta is looking to add to the 11,000 layoffs it had last November, with its newest round of layoffs underway. CEO Mark Zuckerberg as coined 2023 the “year of efficiency,” and it looks like this month technical workers are in the company’s crosshairs. Zuckerberg stated last month that in the coming months, the company is looking to cut another 10,000 jobs.
One source told Vox that this month’s layoffs would be in the 4,000 range. Zuckerberg has said that while this round of downsizing would mainly affect technical workers on low-priority projects, there will be another round in May that will cull more of the business side of things. Per Vox’s report, Lori Goler, Meta’s head of people said in a memo, “This will be a difficult time as we say goodbye to friends and colleagues who have contributed so much to Meta.”
