Anyone else hate how the CEOs of startups promote death camp culture on twitter and other CEOs circlejerk it? Is this a way of normalizing horrible WLB and develop the next billion dollar unicorn gulag deathcamps? Screw these exploitative assholes.

    No its pretty understandable. They are working their asses off because they want to be rich as fuck. And usually when you're the CEO you are a cofounder or have some incredible comp package.

    The problem when they expect those working with and for them to have the same level of dedication with 1/10000 of the comp.

      I used to work at a startup where the CEO took about 3x the vacation I did. Then he would try to get pity points for sending a few emails while on vacation.

    I’m Canadian, but then I got better.
    They’re at the top, why wouldn’t they advocate for something that makes them $ first before everyone else.

    Or maybe it's quite possible to have a personality where work is your hobby and you don't mind working hard? And those are the types of people VCs invest stupid amounts of money in?

      Right but my point is these folks also expect their workers to have work as their ultimate calling.

      Would you rather they be upfront about their desire to have employees with similar ideas about wlb or lie and tell them a 9 to 5 fairy tale?

      All social media is one giant circle jerk. Look at Instagram. It’s all about virtue signaling people people think that getting fully catered trip to a third world country makes them cultured.

    If work is your only hobby then parts of your brain are likely underdeveloped due to a genetic malformation or... by choice?
