On July 9, Chen An, a ByteDance employee who was at work, received an email from the company—the big and small weeks were canceled. Colleagues around him cheered, and the whole office was immediately immersed in a joyful atmosphere. Chen An also looked very happy, and had a dinner with colleagues that night to celebrate. However, Chen An was not happy in his heart. In the two years since he worked at ByteDance, Chen An’s overtime pay has accumulated to more than 100,000 yuan. When he thinks of the sharp drop in wages in the future, and he is still burdened with hundreds of thousands of housing loans,
Chen An joked with his friends, “I want to start Didi on weekends. ." In early June, since Tencent Photonics Game Studio piloted the mandatory closing at 6 o'clock, many Internet companies have canceled large and small weeks. Kuaishou, ByteDance, Meituan’s community group purchase business “Meituan Optimum”, and Boss Zhipin have successively announced the cancellation of Big and Small Weeks. Game companies such as Guangyu job title email list Games, 4399, and 9130 also joined the camp of canceling the big and small weeks. This seems to mean that the era of the big and small weeks of the Internet is over. The cancellation of the big and small weeks, some people are happy and some are worried. On June 17, on ByteDance's regular OpenDay, the new CEO Liang Rubo announced the results of a survey-according to the company's research, one-third of the people did not support the cancellation of the big and small weeks, and one-third supported it. .
This data also made high-level "difficulties", and finally had to give a reply: there is no conclusion yet, and further research is needed. If you cancel the big and small weeks, employees will lose real money. Some employees who claimed to be ByteDance posted on Maimai, saying: If I work overtime for two days, I already have one month's rent, why not work overtime? Some people are reluctant to pay for overtime pay for big and small weeks. Chen An went to the big factory for double overtime pay. If the big and small weeks were canceled, it would mean a loss of 100,000 yuan a year. For Chen An, it was equivalent to the income of his rural parents selling watermelons in the local area for ten years.
