最近去的几个地方

最近去了几个地方,有不错的,也有挺让人失望的。

8月16日,九龙山,离上海车程1小时20分钟

九龙山是老婆在其他人那听说的,我从来没听说过,但是去了以后发现真的很好,还会再去的。交通很方便,A4开到底,出来再开20分钟就到了。是一个像世外桃源一样的地方,有海、有山、有河、有岛,最关键的,几乎看不到人。很适合安静的休息休息。

九龙山 184 九龙山 176

8月23日,泰晤士小镇,距离上海车程1小时20分钟

泰晤士小镇以前去过,那个时候还没全修好,人很少,这次去,人还是很好,但是是修好了没人去,很多以前开业的小饭店、咖啡馆都关门了,看着挺惨的。里面建了个很大的松江区展览馆,感觉很奢侈很奢侈,免费的,有兴趣可以去看看。

8月28日,北京,距离上海飞程1小时40分

去北京办事,从3月份以后就没再去过北京了,和老婆一起去了一趟鸟巢。结果大大的失望,从地铁站出来抬头往上看,想看看那雄伟的鸟巢,结果啥也没看到,眼光开始从上往下扫,在平视的角度上看到了一个鸟巢,当时心想,为啥要做个模型放在这?扫了一圈,发现原来这就是鸟巢。。。哎,期望越高,失望越大啊。赶快拍两张照片,呆了10分钟就走了,失望。。

现在天气开始凉快了,决定每周末都出去到处转转,每次到个没去过的地方,都会有些惊喜。哈哈。

我们也会是这样的公司

看到美国一个公司的招聘启事写的几个点,很触动。将来我们也会是这样的公司。

  1. Large Impact
  2. We hire people who are great at what they do and we give them the freedom to practice their craft without endless buy-in meetings. We forge agreement on strategy, not on tactics. We try to manage by providing context, not by controlling people. The result is that you can get things done quickly and are able to see the impact of your work. Netflix is small enough that you can make a difference, yet big enough to change the way tens of millions of people enjoy film.

    Our culture is centered on the concepts of freedom and responsibility – treating employees as talented people who want to make a difference and should be trusted to do so.

  3. Consistently Outstanding People
  4. We’re a high-performance team, not a family.

    A strong family is together forever – no matter what. A strong company, on the other hand, is more like a pro sports team: it is built to win. Management at every level has the responsibility that professional coaches have – to recruit the players and forge the teamwork that makes great performance possible.

    To accomplish this, we seek to fill every position in our company with exceptional performers. In many companies, adequate performance gets a modest raise. At Netflix, adequate performance gets a generous severance package.

    For us, the cost of having adequate in any position is simply too large, when we could have extraordinary. Extraordinary performance means excellence in the nine values described below. Plentiful extraordinary talent makes for a high-functioning company.

    The benefit of a high-performance culture is you experience the exhilaration of working with consistently outstanding colleagues. You do your best work, you learn the most, and you achieve the highest professional satisfaction, when you’re surrounded by excellence.

    A great workplace is not how many perks are offered; it is how stunning are the colleagues.

  5. Big Pay
  6. We believe that one outstanding employee does more and costs less than two adequate performers. Thus we try to pay at the top of the market, and to have only outstanding employees. Our compensation is guided by market rates and performance, rather than seniority or resume.

    We focus on large salaries, rather than on bonuses and benefits, to provide employees maximum flexibility. Everyone we would hire would earn their full bonus, so we just add it into base salary. Additionally, we offer several investment opportunities including fully-vested stock options, an employee stock purchase program with discounted shares, and a company-matched 401(k) program, all to enable employees to make individual decisions to suit their particular financial objectives and risk profile.

Love Trespassing so much, but impossible in china.

第一次听说Trespassing,是听建硕说的。现在发现真的很喜欢这个词,甚至是羡慕。在美国一个人闯入你的地盘你可以直接开枪击毙,合法;而在中国一个人闯入你的地盘,你如果给他一拳,你就麻烦了。
越来越搞不懂在中国社会,规矩到底是什么,现在越来越怀疑这个规矩叫“关系”。
也在想以后几十年是把时间花在关系上,还是换个讲规矩的地方,很犹豫。
