According to a piece in the publication CNBC, employees felt pressure to remain positive and were discouraged from speaking up while working for the social-media giant while some characterized the internal culture “cult-like.” The former employee put much of the blame on Facebook and its twice-yearly peer-review system, where employees ranked assigned grades. This ex-employee said that people are encouraged to remain positive and were discouraged from speaking up while working there.
This employee said that even if you are Fxxxing miserable, you need to act like you love working there – this employee left in October. The peer-review system in which feedback about colleagues is the root of this dislike for the culture is what seems to bug employees a lot. One must remain an advocate for a positive culture and remain on good standing with colleagues.
It seems that a negative review of only one bad half – twice a year reviews – this sticks with you throughout you time at the media-giant as this score follows you. This stack-rank system was introduced by management guru and General Electric CEO Jack Welch in the 1990s then adopted by Microsoft but was dropped in 2013 as employees said that it damaged employee morale.
