‘Crisis of integrity:’ Some Facebook employees say they’ve had enough

Alongside a picture of his Facebook employee badge and a drawing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Adin Rosenberg posted a lengthy note Monday explaining why he was leaving the company.

“These past years working on Messenger and Instagram have helped me grow personally and professionally, and I look back at them with many fond memories,” Rosenberg wrote in a Facebook post. “However, recently I’ve been feeling a growing sense of disillusionment.”

Rosenberg, who had been a software engineer for almost six years before leaving, is one of a now-steady trickle of Facebook employees who have left in recent months and made clear that they do not see the company as a force for good.

“As a result of the company’s obsession with its growth, so many things go wrong,” Rosenberg, who did not respond to a request for comment, wrote.

Other Facebook employees who have left have offered similar sentiments. Ashok Chandwaney left Facebook last month after more than five years as an engineer working in various departments.

“It’s very clear to me after everything that’s happened, that Facebook’s work has life and death consequences,” he said in an interview. “I did not believe there was a way while working there that I could help move the company to take more seriously some of these really critical issues.”

Chandwaney said he did not raise his concerns internally until he had given his two-week notice. He said he loved the work and his colleagues but explained he was forced to leave because the company “is choosing to be on the wrong side of history.”

In recent months, at least four employees have quit in protest, each posting a message to their colleagues on their way out. Others who still work at the company have spoken out anonymously for fear of retaliation.
