Another Facebook employee has managed to figure out how to get out from under Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg's thumb — and he didn't even have to leave Facebook to do it! Christopher Cox, Facebook's director of human resources, has gotten a new job as the company's director of product. In April, told Fortune about Sandberg's entry into the company: "It was like Sheryl came and kicked everybody in the ass and said this is going to be hard. And then gave everybody a hug." Afterwards, Cox told colleagues he "felt sick after saying that," but that he had to because Sandberg had told him to. Putting an HR guy in charge of product sounds implausible, but Cox, before running HR, was an early engineer at the company and helped launch the site's crucial News Feed feature. It's not a promotion, but it must be a relief.
