Meta Layoffs this week 😬

Meta's going to do layoffs this week. Not surprising, but I wonder how much of this is "peer pressure" from other companies cutting back so much. That said, theyve doubled their full time employee count from 2019, so definitely a lot of bloat.

I've spent over a decade in ecommerce and software and I've been shocked at how oddly hard it is to get a job at Meta, and yet the complete mediocrity and unprofessionalism of their ad and marketing account reps is something I continue to come across. Same with Google. FAANG seems to overpay engineers, and then have unbelievably poor hiring practices with marketing and account management roles.

Because they think they are disposable commodities whereas engineers offer something they can build on
