Elon started lopping engineer heads

Musk is supposedly firing twitter engineers if they don’t have enough commits over the last 30-60 days. He’s been doing weird things like having them print out their code, then telling them to throw the printed stack into the garbage right before the meeting, having engineers from spacex and Tesla mog twitter engineers, etc.

It might not be just the engineers getting it at this point. He tweeted yesterday that there are 10 managers for every one person writing code.
hahahaha
Actually sounds pretty based

Yes its like that in every large corporation. The real number is closer to 100:1 if you consider that the Indian programmers aren't actually human, but instead some sort of if/else script that errors out if they are ever asked to do something outside of their programmed functions.

Elon is fucking BASED.
>>1526401(OP)
code commits is the proven amout of work done, mind you.

so that guy got payed a median salary og 450.000$ a year and didnt even work ?!

and now is bitching !?!
>>1526401(OP)
you need to wipe the organization from the pajeets
>>1526401(OP)
Not going to lie. This kinda excites me. I’ve been in both project manager and scrum master roles, and let me tell you the level of entitlement, laziness, and allusions of grandeur most engineers have cannot be understated. If you aren’t constantly holding their hands, checking in, asking questions, and keeping them on task nothing gets done. You have to deal with them similar to how a slave master deals with their slaves and regularly crack the scrum whip.
>>1526401(OP)
># of code commit
[x] doubt
maybe they should learn to code.
SJW's and faggots are losing their sauce of income. Whats not to like?
>>1526401(OP)
mind you all, the MEDIAN salary for sn engeneer is (was?)

450000$ / year !

reminder :
"Median" means : 50% earn more, 50% less

But how much active programming does a website like Twitter need? It's not like they add new features often.

>He’s been doing weird things like having them print out their code, then telling them to throw the printed stack into the garbage right before the meeting
That's just wasteful and fucking about for the sake of it, any real talent at Twatter will bail if they feel they're being slighted
musk is winning? #tigerblood

Lifefuel. Even as someone who contribute little to the codebase and mostly run tests / look at statistics I’d take getting fired if it meant all those useless whores left
>>1526401(OP)
>Tesla goons
You mean dudes who are programming self-driving vs. dudes maintaining an already built sometimes poorly performing website?
>>1526401(OP)
The real redpill is that the reason this caused so much seethe when Elon took over is because he just started a trend that will almost certainly move to the rest of Silicon Valley, and these muppets know their retarded grossly overpaid asses are next on the chopping block. If you both actually know your stuff and produce quality work then what would you have to worry about? Unless you’re not actually coding at all and only submit garbage pajeetcode.
>>1526401(OP)
The Twitter interface is dogshit, what the heck do those engineers actually do?

Every time I use that crap, I keep thinking of features that are missing or badly implemented, like not having a clear way to keep track of replies without having to actually navigate to each back and forth. Who the hell thought this was a good idea...

Absolutely terrible website.
What a retard. This artificially forces people to make heckin new features (even if it's not broke and you shouldn't fix it). It's like Bolshevik central planning.

The should learn to code, better.

>>1526401(OP)
this is probably fake. no one cares about # of commits. maybe story points if they do scrum. no one would print out code. what would you even print out? the diff? if you changed a variable from true to false would you just print out false? these stories are basically all fake but everyone has a hardon for twitter employees getting fired so they believe it.

How dare he fire people who aren't doing enough work to justify their paychecks. What an asshole.
No employer should be casting judgement on their employees work productivity or quality; it is a fascist microaggression which came from the Arbeit Macht Frei motto.
>>1526401(OP)
>It might not be just the engineers getting it at this point. He tweeted yesterday that there are 10 managers for every one person writing code.

I would believe it. Maybe not 10 managers per se, but 10 "support" people, project managers (not real management), QA, documentation, that sort of thing. The kind of jobs women who can't code go into IT to get.

I’m glad that Twitter troons are getting stomped but I work in tech and like not doing shit and working from home lmao oh well. Worth it to strike back at hell world, even if it’s probably a ruse
Wow... a boss firing people that aren't doing any fucking work? That's CRAZY!

Sounds like socialism.
>>1526401(OP)
Elon Musk is a communist, like his grandfather who tried to make Canada a communist shithole and was kicked out. Elon Musk like all communist are low IQ mongrels who can only think of simplistic solutions to complex problems. They don't see past their own nose.So of course he'll only keep the coders who wrote the most lines of codes which is completely retarded. Length of code has nothing to do with quality and efficiency.
>>1526401(OP)
He’s just cleaning house. When Apple acquired NeXTSTEP and Jobs was made interim CEO, he did something similar to Apple engineers. The NeXTSTEP engineers and execs took over and the s Apple ones were fired. He would get on an elevator and when it opened up to his floor he would tell everybody on the elevator they were fired. He also fired all the people who had him fired. And he made the product teams compete against each other, a practice that Cook stopped cause he’s a stupid fag. Cook also fired Forstall for being too much like Jobs. Apple has been uninnovative and complacent ever since

What more need be assessed? If your job is writing code and you've written shit code. . .
Kek. I’ve worked in tech my whole life. Twitter can be run with one tech manager 4 dev guys, two IT guys, and a couple marketing/sales guys.

I have four different bosses who oversee two people who do probably 90% of the work. I have myself and another junior/staff person, then a manager who I technically report to and a manager that my fellow junior/staff technically reports to. I say “technically since both managers overlap because they both review our deliverables. They don’t actually fix any mistakes or errors, they just tell us to fix it and we send it back.

Then we have a team director who I guess tells our managers what to tell us to do, but he reviews our work as well once our managers have reviewed it. 99% of the time he never says that we need to change anything, and if he does it’s a formatting or presentation thing, so I think his job is just a glorified mail forwarder who sends the finalized product up to the exec level, which I’m sure he discusses with them in a recurring meeting. He’s an older guy and I think he could just vanish one day and nothing would change other than the person who forwards completed projects to the exec team. They just haven’t fired him because he’s been working for the company for over 20 years.

The bulk of their time is spent in meetings amongst themselves with me and the other junior/staff guy excluded, so I guess they’re meeting to discuss what our next task should be?

Then we have a team project manager who I have no idea what the fuck he does but he’s at the same level as the director on the org chart and attends all of the meetings. I’m assuming that he has other teams in other different departments that he “manages projects” for. In the very few meetings that me and the other junior/staff guy are included in, he gives zero input or direction during meetings, never takes any kind of notes, and he never responds to e-mails that he’s cc’d on. He’s an older boomer guy so I’m pretty sure that his job is just a legacy job and is 100% a bullshit job. All he does is go to meetings all day every day.

GOOD
I've been waiting a long time for this
I don't give a single shit about Elon Musk but what he's doing to twitter is unironically based and should have been done years ago, the second they dropped their IPO. these motherfuckers are basically NEETs, they literally don't do anything all day. I don't even into coding and I can tell that they sit on their asses all day long jerking off over funko pops or whatever


at any rate, I haven't enjoyed my popcorn this much since gawker got BTFO by Hulk Hogan.
Elon if you're reading this, please buy youtube and do them next, thanks
