“If I had to bet, I’d say that this might be one of the worst downturns that we’ve seen in recent history,” advised employees within the assembly, per Reuters.

Meta has already began tightening its purse strings. Insider reported in May that Facebook, a subsidiary of Meta, was pausing hiring due to “slower revenue growth than anticipated” per an inner memo.

Zuckerberg advised employees the corporate would deliver in additional aggressive targets with the intention of dropping workers who can’t meet them.

“Realistically, there are probably a bunch of people at the company who shouldn’t be here,” Zuckerberg mentioned, per Reuters.

“Part of my hope by raising expectations and having more aggressive goals, and just kind of turning up the heat a little bit, is that I think some of you might decide that this place isn’t for you, and that self-selection is OK with me,” Zuckerberg mentioned, in response to the Reuters report.

Zuckerberg additionally advised Meta employees the corporate had diminished its hiring goal for engineers for this yr from 10,000 to six,000 or 7,000.

Reuters reported Thursday on a memo sent by Chief Product Officer Chris Cox which mentioned the corporate must”prioritize more ruthlessly” and “operate leaner, meaner, and better executing teams.”

Meta is not the one giant firm to be bracing itself for a looming economic downturn.

Fellow tech big Amazon said in a leaked May memo obtained by Insider that it will minimize hiring targets in its retail enterprise.

Microsoft is also slashing hiring targets in response to an inner June electronic mail seen by Insider.

CEO mentioned Tesla will be cutting around 3% of its total workforce over the subsequent three months.
