Does a “Bruising Workplace” impact your decision to buy from Amazon?
Novelist John Green announced that he cancelled his Amazon Prime membership after reading yesterday’s New York Times Page 1 story on what it’s like to work for Amazon.
The piece, based on more than 100 interviews with current and former employees, reveals a cut-throat, data-driven environment where efficiency and results are delivered at all costs.
Amazon boss Jeff Bezos fought back against critics saying the piece doesn’t reflect the company he knows or the employees he works with daily.
It’s a fascinating piece that impacts business practices everywhere. I’m particularly interested in your thoughts because I rely on Amazon to sell my books–and I shop from the site regularly for pricing and convenience.
You be the judge: Does reading this article impact your decision about buying from Amazon as a consumer?
