  • On Wednesday, Meta shut down Quitter, a tool that shows data on employees leaving and attrition trends.

  • Meta is also letting go of employees across Family of Apps and Reality Labs, according to an internal memo.

  • The firm laid off 11,000 employees to cut costs after losing billions of dollars in revenue.

Meta shut down its internal workplace tool Quitter with no warning on Wednesday, a source familiar with the company told Insider.

Before Quitter was shuttered, Meta employees could use the tool to see data about how many people were leaving the company and track attrition trends.

Quitter was shut down amid Meta's largest round of layoffs to date, leaving the remaining workers to seek out their own information on who was impacted — and which teams were downsized the most.

Meta announced this week that it's laying off more than 11,000 workers, or 13% of its workforce, across the company to cut costs after it lost billions of dollars in revenue on lavish spending.

In a memo that CEO of Meta Mark Zuckerberg sent to employees on Wednesday, he wrote that Meta is "making reductions in every organization across both Family of Apps and Reality Labs," though "some teams will be affected more than others."

While there's no clear breakdown on who was let go, layoffs impacted a wide range of teams from recruitment to product managers to engineers, Insider previously reported.

Meta is providing 16 weeks of base pay to laid-off employees plus two weeks of additional pay for every year of service, said the memo.
