We all know HTC has seen better days. In fact, Samsung is pretty much eating the Taiwanese company’s lunch as we speak and HTC had to do something about it. Their move was to cut R&D costs, but not in the way you would think. Instead of laying off people, they required them to work longer hours without being paid for overtime.
So engineers on their end decided to do something about it, sending out an entry letter to the CEO Peter Chou. Their demands are reasonable as they can’t be working for 12 hours without being paid extra forever. Perhaps the upcoming M7 launch will change HTC’s fortune, perhaps not. The way I see it, a lot depends on Samsung and its upcoming Galaxy S IV smartphone. If the Korean company manages to impress us yet again, HTC is in big trouble.
In any case, we like to see HTC (and all other) engineers getting a decent pay for the hard work they put it…
