‘Fired twice by Meta’: Woman shares how layoffs have ‘exhausting’ impact on mental health

Several major tech companies have been making headlines for their major layoffs of employees around the world. These organizations, once hailed as symbols of innovation and growth, are now facing challenging times and difficult decisions.


The wave of job cuts has affected employees in several regions, reflecting the evolving dynamics of the technology industry and the economic challenges facing these companies.

This trend has sparked debates about the changing landscape of work and the impact of automation, market changes and corporate strategies on the labor market.

LinkedIn, a platform known for career success stories, recently witnessed a different kind of narrative when a former Meta employee shared her challenging experience.

Andrea Guzmán García-Luna took to LinkedIn to express the impact of the impending layoffs and subsequent financial loss on her mental well-being.

His post struck a chord with many people who could relate to the toll such uncertainties can take on one’s mental health.

Garcia-Luna’s post has gained a lot of attention as she shared her experience of being fired by Meta not once but twice.


The first instance occurred in February 2018 when the Instagram community team disbanded, and the second time was last week.

Despite anticipating the possibility of layoffs since November, García-Luna said no contingency plan could ease her anxiety and stress surrounding the situation.

Addressing her struggle with coping, Garcia-Luna wrote down her thoughts on the ineffective nature of her current coping mechanisms.

“I made scenarios and budgets, put plans on hold, relied on therapy, and tried to work and deliver to the best of my ability. But I still cried for two straight hours when the day came.”

Describing the entire ordeal as “exhausting,” García-Luna raised questions about the fairness of the mass layoffs.

He concluded his post by expressing his intention to take a break, focus on rebuilding and rebuilding trust, and called on recruiters to consider hiring former Meta employees.
