  1. Just when we were trying to figure out why have all these tech companies become so incompetent at keeping user data safe, Snapchat has found itself in the centre of the controversy. Turns out, both former and current employees of Snapchat have revealed that the company had dedicated tools to access the user data. By user data, we mean location information, saved Snaps, and even phone numbers. © Reuters According to a Vice's new report , two former employees, a current employee, and some internal company emails have revealed that Snapchat, at one point, created a dedicated tool called SnapLion to spy on users and collect their private information. This tool is said to have been created by Snapchat's employees themselves. The report, which didn't reveal exactly when Snapchat used this tool, says the tool was apparently introduced to combat bullying or harassment on the platform. The report also noted that SnapLion was used to gather information on users in “response to valid law enforcement requests such as a court order or subpoena.” Departments in the company such as “customer ops” and security staff had access to SnapLion. What did they do with the info? God knows. © Reuters Although this isn't the first time we're reading news about our privacy breach, the fact that Snapchat has been a part of the fiasco is very surprising, to say the least. There's still a lot that we don't know about the said breach, so let's just wait for more info.
  2. Just when I thought Facebook was done screwing up its user's privacy, a new report just popped up saying that Facebook's employees had access to hundreds of millions of user passwords. Good job, Facebook! Yesterday, when an independent security journalist named Brian Krebs reported about this mistake, Facebook issued a press release to confirm the same and said it discovered the mishap during a “routine security review in January.” Here's the best part - The press release was titled “Keeping Passwords Secure”. LOL! © Reuters Krebs' report noted that anywhere between 200 to 600 million people are affected due to this mistake, which shouldn't have happened in the first place. In fact, it looks like some passwords were found in archives dating back to 2012. The social media site estimates that hundreds of millions of Facebook Lite users, tens of millions of other Facebook users, and tens of thousands of Instagram users. Looks like the issue has been fixed and it will notify everyone affected. © Pexels According to Facebook, there's no evidence that plain text passwords were exposed outside of the company, neither were they abused internally. So, it says even the affected users don't necessarily need to change their passwords, but I'd still change it if I were you. I am sure you know that this isn't the first security breach that Facebook and its users are dealing with. All we've been hearing about is Facebook and it's privacy issues. It all started with the Cambridge Analytica scandal, and it's just been a string of bad security issues. People even started dumping Facebook, which I once wondered was the right thing to do. But now, I have some serious trust issues and I wonder if it's time to dump the platform for real.
  3. Self-love is the only love that matters anymore, and a UK company totally gets it. This is Ariana Grande and her song Thank You, Next's impact. Just kidding. But, for real, a UK company named LELO UK is giving its employees extra four days holidays for an interesting reason. People need extra time to masturbate and the company is literally giving them offs to do that. Yep. Also, did you catch the name of the company? The entire thing is just a little too hilarious for Hindi-speaking people I'm sure. A company called LELO is telling to lelo, this is not something you see every day. Turns out the company is a *** toy brand and now I'm convinced a desi person started LELO and you can't change my mind. These 'self-love days' are allotted with the belief that it can help boost productivity and happiness in the office. This announcement came after the company carried out a survey of over 2,000 workers across the UK on what makes them feel fulfilled. As expected, the result showed that 78% of participants believe orgasms make them happier. I have one question, what makes the other 22% people happy? Moreover, 66% of the people surveyed claimed they are more productive after having an orgasm and 40% believed that productivity can last up to 5 days after the orgasm. Rachael Nsofor, a spokesperson for the company, said, “Being sexually fulfilled and satisfied is something that we at LELO UK feel is a basic human right and it's completely free!” “As a result of this research, we're delighted to introduce a new initiative where we are offering our UK employees the opportunity to take up to four days a year as a 'self-love day'.” There are a few reactions about the name of the company and the news – by Indians, of course. Company ka naam bhi Lelo hai ð¹ð¹ pic.twitter.com/dyFJGegJG8 — SwatKat- The dancing humanð (@swatic12) November 19, 2018 A very valid question. What if employee takes masturbation leave, and gets laid somehow...... Will that be cheating or over performance ???? They should rename the company to "khud hii ki lelo". ðððð — arey bhai (@side_ho_jaa) November 19, 2018 Everyone should. I support such companies https://t.co/5IirBK4sLj — à¤à¥à¤¶à¤² मà¥à¤¹à¤°à¤¾ (@kushal_mehra) November 19, 2018
  4. Amazon is one of the world's wealthiest companies and is now expanding their headquarters to two other cities in the United States. However, founder Jeff Bezos had a meeting with his employees where he was asked tough questions regarding the company's future. © YouTube An employee wanted to know more about Amazon's direction and Bezos gave a reply that deems possible. Bezos replied "Amazon is not too big to fail. In fact, I predict one day Amazon will fail. Amazon will go bankrupt. If you look at large companies, their lifespans tend to be 30-plus years, not hundred-plus years," Bezos said. CNBC reported the conversation after hearing a recording of the meeting. He added that everyone's goal at Amazon is to "prolong that demise”. He suggested that this can be achieved by “obsessing over customers”. He continued to add that "If we start to focus on ourselves, instead of focusing on our customers, that will be the beginning of the end. We have to try and delay that day for as long as possible," he said. © YouTube Amazon has been expanding the company's business and success at a pace that is highly unprecedented. The core retail business continues to grow; however, the company's major revenue source is its dominant position in cloud-computing i.e. Amazon Web Services. Amazon's workforce has grown to over 600,000 employees in the last eight years and the rising stock price has made it a trillion dollar company. Last month, a report suggests Amazon raised the minimum wage for all employees putting the company a step ahead of its rivals like Target, Walmart and others.
  5. Thousands of Google employees across the globe, including India, walked out of their offices on Thursday to protest the company's handling of sexual misconduct cases. Dubbed the 'Google Walkout,' the demonstrations followed the storm stirred by a New York Times investigation. It details the multi-million dollar severance packages for accused executives and a lack of transparency in dealing with such cases, over the years. View this post on Instagram A post shared by kyla_kelly (@kyla_kelly) on Nov 1, 2018 at 11:29am PDT The employees have demanded key changes in the company's stance, which could finally help the victims sue their harassers. Among other issues raised by protestors are unequal pay and a lack of gender representation. Google's chief executive Sundar Pichai has supported the staff's right to protest. "Yesterday, we let Googlers know that we are aware of the activities planned for Thursday and that employees will have the support they need if they wish to participate," he said. "I understand the anger and disappointment that many of you feel," he said in an all-staff email. "I feel it as well, and I am fully committed to making progress on an issue that has persisted for far too long in our society… and, yes, here at Google, too." A Twitter feed titled @googlewalkout has documented the movement at Google's international offices. Google staff in Singapore, Zurich, London, Tokyo, Berlin and New York were among the first to take part. The first of many coordinated #GoogleWalkout protests has begun - this is at the firm's office in Singapore. (Pic via https://t.co/h44RZYGGHV ) pic.twitter.com/QeFgmPbHnN — Dave Lee (@DaveLeeBBC) November 1, 2018 Google confirmed to PTI that about 150 employees participated in the protests in India. The tech giant has offices in four locations in the country, namely Hyderabad, Gurgaon, Mumbai and Bangalore. Google has struggled to deal with the reaction generated by the New York Times report. Top executives have promised in a mail that the company is "dead serious" towards workplace safety and creating an inclusive environment. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Thames Sookpranee (@thamess) on Nov 1, 2018 at 11:21am PDT At least 48 other employees have been sacked for sexual harassment without receiving a payout, Pichai told staff. He admitted the New York Times' report had been "difficult to read". Staff involved in Thursday's walkout were supposed to leave a note on their desks telling colleagues: "I'm not at my desk because I'm walking out with other Googlers and contractors to protest sexual harassment, misconduct, lack of transparency, and a workplace culture that's not working for everyone." Other formal demands from Google's management are as follows: • A commitment to end pay and opportunity inequality • A publicly disclosed sexual harassment transparency report • A clear, uniform, globally inclusive process for reporting sexual misconduct safely and anonymously • The elevation of the chief diversity officer to answer directly to the CEO, and make recommendations directly to the board of directors • The appointment of an employee representative to the board • An end to forced arbitration in cases of harassment and discrimination for all current and future employees More on this as the story develops.

  6. When most of us were cribbing about our respective jobs, there were some people who were enjoying a long drive in their brand new car which they got from their boss as a Diwali gift. If you are one of those people, congratulations, you have the best boss in the world and the boss in question is none other than the Surat-based diamond merchant, Savji Dholakia. Facebook Just like every other year, Dholakia has decided to make this Diwali the happiest one for his employees, by doing something that will make every other person hate their boss. Earlier this year, Dholakia gifted three of his senior employees Mercedes cars worth Rs. 1 crore each. On Thursday, he distributed 600 cars to his employees, at an event that was attended by PM Modi. Facebook In fact, some employees even received car keys from PM Modi. Apart from cars, the employees also received flats and FDs as Diwali gifts. Facebook The billionaire businessman posted his picture with PM Modi on social media and wrote, "As a part of the company's loyalty bonus program, the #HKGroup gave incentives to approximately 1,700 diamond artists and diamond engineers in the form of cars and fixed deposits." Reportedly, the employees got Renault KWID and Maruti Suzuki Celerio cars as gifts. In 2016, Savji Dholakia, who owns Hari Krishna Exports, gifted his employees 400 flats and 1260 cars. Dholakia is gifting his employees such lavish gifts for the fourth year in a row, while we are waiting here to receive a box of Soan Papdi and microwave-safe bowls.
  7. In a recent interview, Jeff Bezos revealed that he recommends using fear to drive work ethic and innovative thinking. Bezos believes the strategy should be implemented even when everything is going well. © Reuters In a shareholder note, Bezos wrote “I constantly remind our employees to be afraid, to wake up every morning terrified. Our customers have made our business what it is," he continued, "and we consider them to be loyal to us – right up until the second that someone else offers them a better service.” In a highly competitive world, Bezos believes that employees need to be scared of not being at the top and commit to "constant improvement, experimentation and innovation in every initiative.” It kind of makes sense as when you're at the top there's only one way to go — down. It is extremely hard to maintain your position at the top. © Reuters It's not the first time a CEO has adopted the strategy of using fear as a way to motivate workers and employees. Former PepsiCo CEO Indra Nooyi transformed the entire company during her tenure and became one of the most successful business figures in the world. In a previous interview with Bloomberg, Nooyi said "I'm always afraid that if I fail, I may have to go back to something that I don't want to,” she continued, "That fear always motivates me and so I drive myself to be better and better at my job every day.” When Amazon first started as a company, it would only sell books online. Bezos later transformed Amazon into the world's leading online retailer and it was all thanks to innovation. The website today now sells everything from gadgets to healthcare and entertainment. "To invent you have to experiment, and if you know in advance that it's going to work, it's not an experiment," Bezos wrote in a 2016 shareholder letter. "Failure and invention are inseparable twins.” © Reuters Innovation and experimentation have enabled Bezos to make Amazon the next trillion dollar company right behind Apple. Bezos himself is now worth more than $156 billion and is now at the top of Forbes richest list. Source: CNBC
  8. In today's world, having a college degree is of utmost importance. It has become a bare minimum requirement in every industry, as many jobs demand a college degree even if they are not relevant. A degree has always been considered to be a milestone for a person, as it officially proves that you are educated and have a particular skill set. But Glassdoor recently released a list of 15 top employers that no longer require applicants to have a college degree. Companies like Google, Apple, IBM, and EY are all in this group. Companies are now inclined towards hiring candidates whose experience and skills best suit them for the job. © Google Google had acknowledged several years ago that college degrees are slowly becoming irrelevant and what matters most are skills. It is widely seen in India that a person, who has done an Engineering course, is ultimately working in the core banking sector, or is into business development or even marketing. This proves, that even though you have learned a particular subject very well and have a degree to prove the same, your skill sets may be pointing in the other direction. © Reuters Google's former SVP of People Operations Laszlo Bock as quoted in the report said, "When you look at people who don't go to school and make their way in the world, those are exceptional human beings. And we should do everything we can to find those people." The list of the 15 companies where you can apply and get selected without a college degree are- Google, Bank of America, Chipotle, Lowe's, IBM, Home Depot, Nordstrom, Starbucks, Apple, Publix, Hilton, Whole Foods, Costco Wholesale, Penguin Random House, Ernst and Young (EY), and Google. © Reuters Hold your horses though, this in no way means college degrees are worthless or a waste of time. For many people, a university is a place where they acquire skills employers value. And the people who do make it through without a degree are in very small numbers. What this ultimately means is, you need to have a proper skill set along with a degree to get past with ease. What's the use of having a degree if you can't survive in the real world?
  9. Amazon India's Senior Vice President Amit Agarwal wants his colleagues to maintain "work-life harmony" and stop responding to work emails between 6 pm and 8 am. He also talked about the importance of work discipline and how to strike a balance between work and life. According to a report by Bloomberg, Agarwal sent out an email memo internally to his team, talking about the importance of maintaining work-life balance. Previously we've seen Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos talk about the same issue and coin the term "work-life harmony". © Amit Agarwal / Livemint According to Bezos, it isn't about how many hours you spend at home or at work; it's about the energy you bring to both parts of your life. This is a fundamental principle in Bezos's theory of dividing one's time between work and life. The internal memo puts light on India's current state of the IT industry where one is expected to slog the whole day and then complete the remaining work from home. Work-life balance is a considerably new concept in the country where the masses have been used to working more than 60 hours per week. © Reuters Indeed, five of India's biggest cities —Bengaluru, Chennai, Kolkata, Mumbai, and New Delhi—rank extremely low when it comes to work-life balance, according to a recent study of 100 cities around the world by the Amsterdam-based consultancy Arcadis. Indians work around 2,195 hours on an average every year, far above the 1,473 hours a year in Hamburg, the city that ranked among the top three for work-life balance. © Reuters Work no longer happens between the hours of 9 AM and 5 PM, Monday to Friday. Work happens Saturday mornings and late Friday nights. It happens on vacation, and during graduations. The idea of work-life balance suggests that there should be an even split between working and non-working hours. India's IT industry majorly consists of outsourcing, and work needs to be collaborating with the foreign counterparts, ranging from American to European clients. Hence, midnight meetings or off-hour working isn't a rare sight, and the highly competitive environment means it's a do-or-die situation. © Pexels If the employees cannot keep up with the pressure, they are easily replaced. It's good to see Amazon stand along with their employees and understand the situation from a different perspective. However, it still needs to be seen how the company adapts to the new directive because it will mean a radical change for the company, which seems to pride itself on its frugality and how hard it pushes its employees.
