HEYTEA layoffs: In general, 30% of employees were involved, some departments were completely laid off, excessive overtime, delayed year-end bonuses, infighting in the company, and gangs broke out.
According to Sina Finance, HEYTEA is implementing layoffs within the company. The layoffs were started a year ago, and some more will be laid off after the year, involving 30% of employees in total. Some employees claim that there is no year-end bonus for all employees, while others say that it is “deferred”. The information security department was completely cut, and the store expansion department was cut by 50%. Laid off employees will receive normal N+1 compensation, or they can choose to be internally transferred to other departments, such as technical positions to business positions. The annual meeting has no meals and few benefits. Employees are forced to stay at 10 o’clock in the evening and participate until 12 o’clock in the middle of the night. On the live broadcast screen of the annual meeting, messages such as salary increases and year-end bonuses covered the whole screen.
Internal analysis believes that the development of HEYTEA has reached a bottleneck period, and the store department is no longer important. At present, most of HEYTEA’s employees are in a state of “lying flat” and watching. This large-scale layoff has caused the excessive overtime work, delayed year-end bonuses, and infighting in the company to break out at HEYTEA, making the employees extremely negative. A HEYTEA employee revealed that the 3-month year-end bonus promised on entry was cancelled when he heard that the bonus was cancelled. Like many young new consumer companies, HEYTEA has also been exposed to problems such as chaotic internal management, obvious infighting, and unclear systems by employees.
Some ex-employees revealed, “This layoff is partly the result of political struggles. The senior management team of HEYTEA rarely stays for two years. Usually they leave in more than a year, and some are fired in half a year. The gangs are very obvious. Previously, the executives were from Tencent, and the internal team was replaced by people from Tencent; before that, they were all from Vipshop.” If employees belong to the executive faction, they will get good performance appraisals even if they try to fish. This kind of internal management is too much for many employees, so there is a lot of staff turnover within HEYTEA, and few people have been there for two years.
