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.”

    It honestly is amazing how tone dead these corporations are. Constantly talking about record years and pushing to maximize EOY numbers while simultaneously giving less-than-inflation raises.

    I know I’m preaching to the choir, but next time you feel stressed by work just remember the company will still be there tomorrow. None of it actually matters. Just keep your head down and do the minimum viable work needed to keep the job.

      I don’t think they are tone deaf. I think they are gaslighting people for their own benefit. Rich people didn’t get there being honest.

      They don’t give a fuck about you. They just want to maximize their profits so they can buy that new yacht.
