Ideal Car was revealed to be discounted in half of the year-end bonus, causing employee dissatisfaction

According to news from Cheyun.com, on January 19th, an ideal car certification employee posted on Maimai to bombard Ideal:

It claims to be the number one in various sales volumes and is invincible all over the world. Internally, PUA employees are crazy about making cakes for employees to complete sales performance. At the end of the year when the year-end bonus was issued, I told everyone that the sales volume did not meet the target, and the year-end bonus was discounted. Almost everyone got a year-end that was not a month, which was very different from the promised 14 to 16 salary, and they were ready to run away.

After this post was published, many ideal employees showed up in the comment area, saying that their year-end bonuses were all discounted in half this year. An employee in charge of ideal automobile logistics commented that low-level employees like himself do not even have year-end bonuses.

Even Li Xiang's R&D team, which has repeatedly announced that it will increase investment, has been affected. An algorithm engineer of Li Auto said, “Everyone was told a salary of 14-16 when recruiting, but it was never written in the offer.”

Employees are generally puzzled that last year's year-end bonus was generally within 1-2 months, and this year's sales hit a new high, but the year-end bonus used to motivate employees was actually discounted in half.

Police revealed that the passengers in the car were between the ages of 14 and 20 and were only a few minutes away from their home.

But this function has indeed saved many lives. What do you think of this function ?
