Google and Facebook CEO's have both come down on their employees recently because the Big Tech workers have been "slacking" lately.
With tough economic times ahead, these companies are letting their employees know they are going to have to actually do their job if they want to remain employed.
From Fox Business:
The chief executives of Alphabet and Meta Platforms, the parent companies of Google and Facebook and major heavy hitters in the tech world, are warning under-performing employees to step it up, drawing concern for potential layoffs amid the continued economic downturn...
Following a disappointing fiscal quarter, Meta (Facebook) CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Alphabet (Google) CEO Sundar Pichai both told staffers they have productivity concerns and are "turning up the heat" on managing staff performance.
These Big Tech companies have been lax for the last few years, especially during the pandemic work-from-home era.
But now that things are "back to normal" and the economy is making things tough, these companies are going to have to make sure they're getting their money's worth out of their employees.
"Just kind of turning up the heat a little bit," Zuckerberg was quoted as saying. "I think some of you might decide that this place isn't for you, and that self-selection is OK with me."
Meanwhile, Pichai issued similar concerns. Pichai reportedly told staffers last week that there are "real concerns that our productivity as a whole is not where it needs to be for the head count we have." The comments were first reported by CNBC.
Facebook and Google employees with cushy positions who make money for doing next to nothing: You're going to have to actually make something of yourself now.
And you can thank Joe Biden's economy!
