Incoming Mid-Level Engineer at Meta2 years ago

Meta is slowing down hiring, and they’re trying to focus on a few big bets across the company. As someone who is joining the company soon, how will this impact the bootcamp team selection process, and should this impact my team strategy?

    • In a recessionary environment, power is moving from employee to employer (not only for things like team selection, but also areas like work-from-home and other perks)
    • I imagine you’ll have fewer teams to pick from – you’ll be highly encouraged (or forced) to work on one of the top initiatives across the company, like the Metaverse, the IG shift to video, or ads.
    • When there’s a hiring freeze, you should be especially careful not to join a team which has a risk of getting into maintenance mode, since career growth will be significantly harder here.
