Happy New Year from the iPhone!
2019 starts turbulently for some big giants, between Apple's flop and the general decline in NASDAQ stocks. But even in China they are not doing very well, starting with Huawei. The most attentive will have noticed the controversy that arose on the Twitter profile of the Chinese company. On that occasion, a greeting tweet sent from the iPhone had appeared and was promptly removed.
Well, it seems that those responsible for the error have paid a high price for it. The source of the problem was a malfunction of the VPN on desktop computer, which would have led Huawei's social media manager to publish from an iPhone with a sim in roaming. Result? Damage to the brand image , according to Vice President Chen Lifang.
For this reason the managers were downgraded to a company rank and their salary was reduced by 5000 yuan , about 700 dollars. In addition, the digital marketing director will also be paid for twelve months. Obviously this is not the first similar incident in the furniture industry, as Samsung itself can testify. Punishments, however, seem a bit excessive, even by Chinese standards.
