Meta Engineering Manager Case Study

This was an Engineering Manager at Meta who has put 20+ employees on PIPs throughout their career.

  • PIPs come from a mismatch of a “square peg, round hole”

  • PIPs should never be a surprise. PIPs get discussed with the skip manager and HR

  • Designed to be achievable with effort

  • Across 20+ PIPs, has never had anyone continue employment

  • Advice: “Clarity is more important than agreement”
