  • Mark Zuckerberg reportedly said managers shouldn’t be rewarded for building bigger teams.

  • Zuckerberg reportedly said he didn’t think a “managers running managers” structure was ideal.

  • Meta’s chief product officer Chris Cox has discussed the need to “flatten” the management structure, Command Line said.

Managers Managers Managers Managers Managers Managers…

There’s a corporate tongue twister, if there ever was one.

According to Command Line Newsletter, Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg reportedly said he wasn’t a fan of all those levels of management.

“I don’t think you want a management structure that’s just managers managing managers managing managers managing managers managing people doing the work,” Zuckerberg reportedly said loudly during an internal Q&A session in late January command line.

The company’s chief product officer, Chris Cox, reportedly wrote a post on Meta’s communications platform Workplace in early January about the need to “smooth out” the company’s organizational structure, Command Line reported.

Command Line writer Alex Heath believes this all points to “more layoffs to come.”

In November 2022, Meta announced it would lay off more than 11,000 employees, marking one of the largest layoffs in the company’s history.

Meta is among a number of tech giants that have drastically reduced their workforce in recent months, including Twitter, Amazon, Microsoft and Google. The mass layoffs have caused many in the tech industry to panic about the future of the industry.

Meta didn’t immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
