Meta cutting more than 2,400 California jobs as part of mass layoff – Silicon Valley Business Journal – The Business Journals

More than 21% of the 11,000 jobs Meta Platforms Inc. is cutting are based in the Bay Area and nearly 23% total are based in California, according to documents the tech giant filed with state officials.
The tech giant is making most of its local cuts in its home city of Menlo Park. The company plans to lay off 1,642 workers there between Jan. 13 and Feb. 10, Lori Goler, its vice president of people, said in a letter Friday to the state Employment Development Department and local officials.
“Separations resulting from this action are expected to be permanent,” Goler said in the letter.
Meta representatives declined to comment on the layoff notices.
The cuts in Menlo Park will affect employees working at 15 different locations within the city. Among those it’s laying off there are dozens of software engineers in its engineering group and receptionists in its global security operations group, according to Goler’s letter.
In addition to Menlo Park, Facebook’s layoffs will also affect its offices in:
Employees losing their jobs fill an assortment of roles, including ones in marketing, engineering, accounting and sales.
The company announced the layoffs last week. They followed Meta’s disappointing third-quarter report, which included declining sales and a worse-than-expected revenue forecast for the holiday period. Company CEO Mark Zuckerberg blamed the cuts on his mistaken expectation that the growth the company saw during the early stages of the Covid-19 pandemic would be the new norm.
Meta is one of numerous companies with local ties that’s cutting staff. Inc. is planning to lay off 10,000 office and tech workers, according to a New York Times report Monday. Twitter Inc., meanwhile is cutting half its staff in the wake of Elon Musk’s takeover of the company.
