According to a report by TechCrunch, Meta confirmed reports it has revoked full-time job offers that were extended to some candidates. Meta hasn’t commented on how many people or departments were affected by this action, but TechCrunch quotes a company spokesperson saying, “While this decision did not come lightly, it allows us to remain thoughtful as we readjust our hiring through 2023 to align with our highest-priority work.”
A tweet from writer and software engineer Gergely Orosz claims that this action from Meta has affected at least 20 people that initially had offers to start in February. The tweet also points to a statement from Meta recruiters from last October to not rescind full-time job offers, with only part-time offers being at risk.
Unfortunately, that policy seems to have changed, marking the first time that Meta has pulled back on signed job offers for full-time employees.
Meta isn’t the only one experiencing problems. Elsewhere in tech, giants like Amazon, Netflix, Salesforce, and even the esports brand 100 Thieves have laid off significant percentages of their workforce.
