I found myself still logged into work at 11:00pm last night. Why you ask? Simple. Meta product management roles are unreasonably sweaty. Even when I'm not at work, I can feel my projects weighing at the back of my mind. Do any of y'all experience something similar at your companies?

Are you new to the PM role or to Meta? If so, that might explain it. There’s a learning curve and the expectation is for you to ramp up unreasonably fast.

Who’s giving you these deadlines that are making you put in extra hours? Have you brought this up with your manager? I’d have a candid conversation with them about this to figure out a solution.

The level you come in at also matters because it determines your scope. Make sure those align for you by looking at your peers and their responsibilities.

Do Meta PMs do PowerPoint or Docs (like Amazon)?

Sweaty?

Sweaty = Overwhelming amount of work.

Employer requires use of vacation for sick days for non-exempt salaried employees, then surprises everyone with a forced, unpaid week at the end of the year due to shutdowns. At this point, most people that can afford to plan for the week of vacation time they have to use at the end of the year.

Is this common practice? I am pretty sure it is completely legal, but still seems like a bad policy.
