Zuckerberg said Facebook staff can work from anywhere – for a certain price



Zuckerberg said Facebook staff can work from anywhere - for a certain price

If you want to work for Facebook from your home in Peoria, Illinois, don’t expect Palo Alto, a California-sized salary.

Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg said Thursday that half of the social networking giant’s employees can work remotely in the next five to 10 years, and that Facebook will start allowing certain employees to work from home full time.

But the remote worker must warn Facebook if they move to a new location on January 1 and may adjust their wages, he added. Given that Silicon Valley has some of the most expensive real estate in the country, that adjustment is likely to decrease.

“We will adjust salary to your location at that time,” Zuckerberg said, adding that adjustments will be needed for tax and accounting. “There will be severe consequences for people who are not honest about this.”

This shift can help rebuild the US job market in technology, because Facebook currently has more than 40,000 employees. Zuckerberg said there would be a variety of jobs that were qualified to work remotely, starting with senior engineers who had just been recruited and then developing into current employees with strong performance reviews.

“I think we will be the most advanced company in distance work on our scale, of course,” Mr. Zuckerberg told employees on a live broadcast Thursday.

Facebook’s new remote work system “will largely rely on a code of honor,” Zuckerberg said, but the company will “take some basic precautions” to ensure that employees are where they say they are. However, employees who left the Bay Area when Facebook implemented work-from-home orders in March might eventually be able to stay in place, he said.

Zuckerberg’s surprise announcement – which follows Twitter’s announcement earlier this month that employees will eventually be allowed to work from home indefinitely – will eventually become a “win win” for workers and employers, according to an expert.

“Depending on how they calculate it, workers might be far better off making a little less lifestyle but living where they want to be,” Michael Solomon, co-founder of a 10x technology recruitment company, told The Post.

Solomon, also the author of an upcoming book entitled “Game Changer,” said that middle-class candidates would likely be happy to have a choice between a higher salary in the Bay Area or a higher quality of life elsewhere, while the cream from the harvest will get their paycheck regardless.

“I think the best people, you have to pay them regardless of where they live or you will lose them to competitors,” he said.

Facebook shares closed up 0.6 percent Thursday, to $ 231.39.

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.



Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
