加班

微软的Robert Scoble和Google的Mark Lucovsky为了加班这事斗起来了。Mark Lucovsky为自己的同事加班到凌晨三点很自豪,Scoble有点不服气,他认为这在微软也不算希奇,更重要的是,作为一个Manager,鼓励加班不是什么地道的事情。摘录几句blog和comments中有趣的部分:

  • “But, what do you think of managers who value around-the-clock-in-the-office kind of work” – By Robert Scoble。你对一个赞赏一天到晚在公司加班的Manager怎么看?- Scoble对Mark Lucovsky的反问
  • “overtime breeds poor code which breeds rework. In the end you don’t get any more software out of the programmers, but you get significantly more stress, which can breed resentment.” – By Mike Dimmick 。加班滋生差劲的代码,差劲的代码滋生返工,到头来你什么也别想得到,你做的只是增添压力,会进一步滋生怨恨的压力。
  • “The Extreme Programming people have enshrined the forty-hour-week as one of their core practices. You can do occasional overtime but shouldn’t do a second week of overtime in a row.” – by Mike Dimmick。实施极限编程方法的人把提倡每周四十小时工作作为他们的核心体验,偶尔加班没问题,但不要一周周的连着加。
  • “I’ve been in the computer business for over 30 years and have concluded that there are only three reasons to work more than 40 hours a week on a regular basis. One – you are incompetent. Two – your management is incompetent. Three – you have no ability to socialize with others. I.e. No life.” – By Alfred Thompson。我在电脑行业做了三十多年,以我看,每周超过四十小时工作当作家常便饭就三个原因:1.你能力有限。2.你老板能力有限。3.你缺乏社交能力,或者说,没有生活。
  • Number two seems to be the most common though. – By Alfred Thompson。通常,以第二个原因居多。(上面的老师接着说)

我还以为微软有加班文化呢,看来误解需要澄清啊。呵呵。
