Sacked Meta employee slams CEO, asks ‘Has Mark Zuckerberg taken a pay cut?’

In a second round of job layoffs, Meta (formerly Facebook) has started to let go of roughly 10,000 employees. Many of these employees, including a lady who was sacked while on maternity leave, have already started looking for new jobs on LinkedIn.

The most alarming part, according to Andi Allen, a senior technical recruiter at Meta in the US who was let go during the second round of layoffs, was being fired while on maternity leave.

In her LinkedIn post, Andi Allen wrote, “I was part of today’s #metalayoffs while on maternity leave. I understand changes in market trends and focus on the business’s bottom line. I don’t understand how #metaleadership miscalculated so badly that they had to lay off thousands of employees, and yet still want to claim that they care about the people who work for them.”

“Has Mark Zuckerberg taken a pay cut?” she questioned.

“My recruiting team was top-notch, and I loved the teams we supported, but #meta’s handling of this situation is appalling,” she concluded.

Ironically, Andi Allen had voiced her delight that her position had not been impacted by the Meta layoffs just four months earlier.

She also expressed how much she loved her job and how close she was to give birth to her first child.

Andi Allen wrote, “Thank you to everyone who has checked in on me regarding the #metalayoffs. I found out this morning that my role was not impacted. I’m tremendously relieved to still have my job because I’m about 3 weeks away from having a baby, but also because I genuinely love working at #Meta.”

Meta fired close to 11,000 employees in 2022 during the first round of job cuts.
