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.”

    “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,”

    Bitch, I find fulfilment in paying my fucking bills. I could give 2 shits less about the “tangible results” of my work that makes my company money, I only care that my boss is happy with my work and I get paid. Working harder to get another 10% out the door gets me 0% more money, so why do I care about making you more money with no benefit to me?

    All that is ln’t to say I don’t care about the quality of my work, I’m just not going to break my back to make my boss another dollar while I get jack shit out of my extra effort. I get paid for 40hrs, I work 40hrs, and I’m surely not going above and beyond to earn a pizza party or something…
