Wayfair’s CEO has an end-of-year message for employees of the online furniture company: Don’t shy away from doing more work and blending your work with your life.

“Winning requires hard work. I believe that most of us, being ambitious individuals, find fulfillment in the joy of seeing our efforts materialize into tangible results,” CEO Niraj Shah said in a note to employees earlier this month celebrating the company’s recent success, and which a company spokesperson confirmed to CNN. “Working long hours, being responsive, blending work and life, is not anything to shy away from. There is not a lot of history of laziness being rewarded with success.”

    Big words for someone whose business model is overcharging to drop ship cheap, Chinese garbage.

      He’s also not very good at it. They losst nearly 400 million dollars in 2022. And laid off 900 workers.

      Such is his genius, he now blames this on Susan in Accounts. not working weekends.

      Every CEO is a worm.

      I feel like the whole furniture industry is just a crap shoot. Even the very expensive Laziboy I bought is just MFP with cardboard in the center console.

      They literally don’t make them like they used to.

      I’ve never seen the appeal of ordering furniture online that I have never seen in person. Light fixtures, rugs, ceiling fans etc sure I can see that. But a bed? A couch? Just don’t get it.
