The Wall Street Journal published an article recently which alleges that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s newly adopted aggressive management style is causing inner turmoil at the company as he tells his staff that the company is at “war.”
In an article titled “With Facebook at ‘War,’ Zuckerberg Adopts More Aggressive Style,” the Wall Street Journal alleges that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has adopted a new, more aggressive management style which is reportedly turning away some executives and causing issues at the company.
Zuckerberg’s new management style is reportedly due to pressure he’s under from senior executives to “make progress faster” on growing issues at Facebook such as slow user growth.
Even some of Zuckerberg’s top advisors have reportedly not been safe from his criticism, with Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg even worrying for her job in the wake of the Cambridge Analytica scandal earlier this year.
This spring, Mr. Zuckerberg told Ms. Sandberg, 49, that he blamed her and her teams for the public fallout over Cambridge Analytica, the research firm that inappropriately accessed private data on Facebook users and used it for political research, according to people familiar with the exchange.
