Too many layoffs

Don’t feel safe with amount of layoffs plus don’t trust management. How are you going to layoffs thousands of people then repost the same job a few months later? Do better leadership.

Unsatisfactory and I'd have not accepted the opportunity if I knew the full picture in advance

What is the best part of working at the company?working with very capable colleagues who have a passion for what they do.What is the most stressful part about working at the company?lots of turmoil, resulting from layoffs and inconsistent direction from senior leadership. Also, the company does not truly value diversity, equity and inclusion even though they "talk" like they do. What is the work environment and culture like at the company?tumultuous, competitive, inconsistent (e.g., committed to remote work, indicating that 50% would work remotely over the next few years, and then did an "about-face" and gave an edict that 3 days in the office is mandatory).What is a typical day like for you at the company? very busy with lots of meetings and accountabilities. However, the company did not have adequate technological tools to drive efficiency.

Odd culture, vague goals, toxic leadership, but great comp.

Hired during the Reality Labs boom before it was public how many billions they were losing, which led to the layoffs. Performance is graded upon what people think of you and how you obtain friends/allies, vs actual discrete, measurable indicators. Comp is great, but if you like actually getting things done and having ownership of your particular area vs insecure mgmt. , ever changing top-down directives, and constant backstabbing for the PSC evaluation, look elsewhere.

Everything looks wonderful, after working there for a couple of years it is lipstick on a pig

Food, games, youth campus it all looks so nice. When the reality sets in it is far from it. 1. Leadership is the source of a toxic culture of slew of people working very hard to make lots of money for Meta under the guise of connecting the world. This causes its own set of disillusionment problems once that reality sets it. 2. The HR team is too much in the everyday work experience with a constant bombardment of “justify why you are here messaging and concern” under a guise of making impact. This is something as much of the workforce is very cynical of this pervasive ever-there, ever lingering presence. 3. The company is always changing its focus. Chasing the next big thing, why? See point one. It is not out to fix world issues it serves one purpose. To put ads in people face. 4. Meta does not hire role players. It hires top talent. The result is too many cooks for every thing. The smallest of issues has too many opinions and options because there is not enough role players. This makes working life miserable. 5. There is no commitment to people. There is lots of lip service and they do a good job of selling new hires the idea of “This is your company”, but it is not. It is everything your free mind would tell you before you get hired. It is rouse to make you devote more than you ever should to any company just trying to make a mountain of money.


Good benefits and pay only apply to software engineers.


Company is disorganized, you will burn a ton of energy, trying to figure out what to do, constant scrutiny, high stress, constantly shifting policies

Very unprofessional on the HR/Management side of things.

What is the best part of working at the company?I worked there for 6 months and was laid off due to Covid-19. When I tried to come back they made up a lie and said I fell asleep on the job so they were no longer interested. When I litterally got a check for 2k when they laid us off as did everyone. What is the most stressful part about working at the company?Nothing was really stressful. The job was great. What is the work environment and culture like at the company?It was very strict and you always had to be on your toes. What is a typical day like for you at the company?Grouping to your team, and working alongside others to complete tasks.

Amazing workplace with very competent coworkers

As a research engineer, your work depends on the specific team you are working with. However, here is a general outline of what a typical day might look like:You arrive at work and grab a breakfast if needed. Then, you start working. Some days start with a meeting with your team to track the project's progress. Then, you start working on the issues/todos that you have assigned for yourself. When stuck, you can reach out to one of the seniors researchers working on the same project and ask for help. By afternoon, you can go meet a few of your friends and have lunch together with some dessert. Once finished, you get back to work and keep working till evening. Then, you leave work and head home to relax, spend time with your family or friends, or pursue your hobbies and interests.

Work Hard, Play Hard

We had a very productive and high bar to aspire to, however we did so with a smile on our face, jokes and playful banter were daily occurrences. I was included in last round of layoffs, even though last two perf cycles were Exceeds Expectations. I worked their 9 years and grateful for the friends and experience.

Ambiente muy rápido y orgnico

Esta empresa es una empresa gigante pero que sigue operando como una start Up. En momentos todo parece un caos pero de alguna manera los problemas son resueltos.

I love matter, I appreciate how long her CEO has been driving

I love working at Meta. I am empowered to create my own work life, balance, and drive my own career forward. The ball is completely in my court. If anything is falling short, all I have to do is work with my manager on how to fix it. The only thing I don’t like right now is the uncertainty of layoffs constantly in the air. if layoffs could ever subside, I would love to get back to living the work in the company again.


Fully remote work, encouraged, management is excellent, it’s easy to get promoted and move up, tons of opportunity for advancement, rewarding work


Layoffs create uncertainty and cause stress for teams, making it difficult to navigate relationships and team dynamics right now.

Great compensation and benefits, maybe sunsetting

Still great, but not what it used to be. Demoralizing with all the negative press. Good people, good benefits. Best health insurance and benefits are consolidated using a great portal. Job advancement is necessary until IC5


Great health insurance


Highly bureaucratic

Not bad, but do feel pressure

Overall it is not bad. A lot of smart coworkers. However, it is true about the psc driven culture . Which made things weird. People have to chase after "impact" .

productive but need to be more customer focused

Developers were highly productive but need to be more customer focused (documentation and software support. Software developers was highly skilled in their role. They need to understand the total impact of software from a user perspective.


Good pay


short-term focused

Great pay and benefits, awful everything else.

Work life balance doesn't exist at Meta. I had to be available 24/7, with regularly scheduled meetings at literally any time day or night, and I was in HR. The pay isn't worth the stress and hours.


Free lunch

One of the best places to work, period.

Best work experience I've ever had. Onboarding is thorough. You choose when you are done and can choose your team. People are talented and kind, so it's easy to learn new things. Developer experience is unreal. Internal tools are great, creating a new dev instance is a breeze. All code is available.
