It is a bad look
Work is not life. All these people who blindly follow the CEOs and think that the company is their life. I swear startups have brainwashed so many idiots.
Musktard like most CEOs of startups are snake oil salesmen. They need fanbois and idiots believing their bullshit or else their smoke and mirror shows don’t work.
Especially if you do it a lot, I’ve found.
This person who was fired recently tweeted this:
> The worst take you could have from watching me go all-in on Twitter 2.0 is that my optimism or hard work was a mistake. Those who jeer & mock are necessarily on the sidelines and not in the arena. I’m deeply proud of the team for building through so much noise & chaos.
She really loves licking that capitalist boot
>The layoffs impacted product managers, data scientists, and engineers who worked on machine learning and site reliability, the report said, citing sources familiar with the matter.
Oh this is going to be *so fucking good*
A good lesson I learned from the startup phase is to compare your late nights to a second job. If you’re working 60 hours a week for a year, you could have had a second 20 hour a week job and got real money for it. At the end of the year, that $10,000 bonus is kind of nothing unless you work for $5/hr. Your work has value, and employers will often ask for more free work just to see if you’ll do it. Good excuses are things like “I have to take care of my kid because my wife works nights” or “my parents need me to stop by at night and do chores for them that they can’t manage”. Or, just tell them, “I’m sorry I can’t put more time in at the pay rate I’m given.”
