Mark Zuckerberg is annoyed by employees asking about vacation
Mark Zuckerberg nearly held a companywide Q&A meeting on June 30 where he answered pre-recorded questions.
However, during the hearing, a Chicago employee asked Zuckerberg if ‘Meta Days’, any additional leave introduced in the wake of the COVID-19 shutdown, would continue into 2023.
The question came after the head of Facebook spoke about the impact of the global economy on the financial market. “It may well be one of the worst recessions we’ve seen in recent history,” he added.
Surprisingly, the CEO of Meta gave a cold response to the question that employee Gary was reportedly asked.
The 38-year-old billionaire said, “Um… well. Looking at my tone of voice in the rest of the Q&A, you can probably imagine my reaction to this one.
Zuckerberg also shared that Meta will increase the standards for its employees. He also revealed that they were laying off employees who could not meet the new minimum.
The tech giant said, “Realistically, there might be a group of people in the company that shouldn’t be here.”
He continued, “Part of my hope by raising expectations and making more aggressive goals, and kind of turning the heat up a little bit is that I think some of you might decide this place isn’t for you, and that self-selection is okay with me.
Meta staff reacts to Mark Zuckerberg’s dramatic change of tone
After the meeting, a group of employees headed to their internal messaging site Workplace to discuss Mark Zuckerberg’s plans.
One employee criticized Zuckerberg, saying, “Did Mark just say that there’s a bunch of people at this company that don’t belong here?[?]”
Another wrote, “Who hired them?”
However, some employees praised the shift in the tone of the billionaire CEO.
One employee remarked, “This is wartime, we need a wartime CEO.”
While another sound was in response, ‘Beast Mode’ was activated.
The comments come shortly after Zuckerberg was dropped from the list of the world’s 10 richest billionaires in March after his Meta shares plunged. It currently ranks 17th on the list.
Zuckerberg has reportedly lost a whopping $64.4 billion which is more than his estimated net worth of $61.1 billion.
