As per The Wall Street Journal report, some Meta employees questioned why the executive team received high-performance ratings despite being accountable for the decisions that resulted in layoffs.

An employee at Meta reportedly questioned why the entire executive team received top-tier performance ratings (EE/GE ratings) despite being directly responsible for decisions that resulted in the need to lay off more than 20% of the company. The employee criticized the lack of accountability and raised questions about the executive team not being held responsible for their choices.

Bonuses awarded to top executives at Meta were based on individual performance calculations, according to a company filing. The target percentage was set at 75%, but the executives exceeded expectations by a significant margin, earning six-figure bonuses.
