Meta plans to cut its workforce by another 10,000 people and close around 5,000 open roles that it has not filled yet, company’s founder and chief executive Mark Zuckerberg said Tuesday, just months after cutting 11,000 jobs as the company chases its goal to become more efficient this year.
“This will be tough and there’s no way around that. It will mean saying goodbye to talented and passionate colleagues who have been part of our success. They’ve dedicated themselves to our mission and I’m personally grateful for all their efforts,” he wrote in a memo to employees that the company has since made public.
“After restructuring, we plan to lift hiring and transfer freezes in each group. Other relevant efficiency timelines include targeting this summer to complete our analysis from our hybrid work year of learning so we can further refine our distributed work model. We also aim to have a steady stream of developer productivity enhancements and process improvements throughout the year,” he wrote in a memo to employees that the company has since made public.
