After laying off 11,000 employees last year, Facebook’s parent company Meta is now cutting 10,000 more jobs. Many employees who have been impacted by the second round of layoffs in the company are now taking to LinkedIn to share their stories. One such Meta employee has revealed that her maternity leave was cut short due to the layoffs, after spending three years at the company.
Sara Schneider, who was part of the Talent Acquisition and recruiting team, said how she went through major life milestones during her time at the company, including moving three times, finding the love of her life, getting married, getting pregnant, and having her first baby.
In a LinkedIn post, she wrote, ”Unfortunately, my maternity leave was cut short at Meta due to the brutal Meta Layoffs. I spent an amazing 3 years at a company that had so many memories and worked with the best teams and incredible people. This layoff was not performance-based as so many top performers were let go. I am honored to have spent time recruiting for the People Team as well as the Software Engineering Team.”
