Musk asks employees to end telecommuting

According to Electrek and Bloomberg, Tesla CEO Elon Musk sent executives an email titled "Remote work is no longer acceptable."

Musk said in an email that employees must stay in the office for at least 40 hours a week or “leave Tesla.” Moreover, the office here refers to the "main Tesla office", not the "remote branch office."
In another email, he also said that of course there are other companies that don't require employees to return to the office, "but when was the last time these companies released a great new product?"
Earlier, Musk tweeted: "All the pandemic stay-at-home stuff makes people think you don't really need to work hard."

Tencent's promotion no longer immediately raises salary

Recently, Tencent released an internal email to all employees, announcing the start of a new round of salary reform.

The email stated that Tencent will no longer implement immediate salary adjustments for rank promotions alone, and the salary adjustments for rank promotions will be integrated into the incentive resource package of the annual salary review.

At the same time, the annual salary review will be changed from June to July, which will be comprehensively evaluated in combination with factors such as performance contribution, ability improvement, and salary competitiveness.

In 2020, Tencent set the "salary review" as an annual salary evaluation mechanism, breaking the principle that employees must get a salary increase every April in the past.

Since the beginning of this year, Tencent has continued to increase its efforts to "reduce costs and increase efficiency". Previously, Tencent was exposed to layoffs in many departments. This reform is also Tencent's first large-scale salary adjustment this year. (The Paper)

According to the financial report data, the monthly active users of Weibo reached 582 million, and the proportion of monthly active users in the first quarter from the mobile terminal reached 95%.

On the expense side, Weibo’s costs and expenses in the first quarter amounted to US$381.8 million, an increase of 9% over the same period last year. The company stated that the relevant growth was mainly affected by the increase in personnel-related costs and the cost of content related to the Winter Olympics. The company's sales and marketing expenses declined due to channel investment optimization and a reduction in offline activity.

Regarding the performance of this quarter's revenue, Weibo said it was mainly affected by the uncertainty of macro factors, the re-emergence of the new crown epidemic and the control measures in key domestic areas since mid-March. The decrease in value-added service revenue was mainly due to the decline in membership service revenue and live broadcast revenue. (Wall Street News)
