Meta has brought in a DJ to play music in its Menlo Park campus cafe, an employee told The Information.

The company has been encouraging people to return to the California headquarters in recent months, pointing to an early analysis that suggested early-career engineers who joined in person performed better than those working remotely.

Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg has also hinted that the company’s remote-work policy may change. In an all-hands meeting earlier this month, he told employees that while the company plans to “continue to support remote work,” it would analyze performance data and potentially update the policy.

Some employees may be lured back to the office by Meta’s in-person perks. The company’s Menlo Park campus has a history of offering workers generous benefits, such as on-site doctors and dentists.

Meta has cut back on some health perks, however, amid mass layoffs, Insider reported. The company also scrapped its Lyft subsidy so employees would no longer get free rides.

Meta announced two weeks ago that it was embarking on a second round of cuts. Most of the 10,000 employees affected wouldn’t find out if they were being laid off until April or May, the company said, per the Information.

The uncertainty has left people feeling vulnerable and created a sense of paralysis in certain areas of the company, Meta employees told the publication.

Representatives for Meta did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment, made outside normal working hours.
