Work ethic

Couldn’t agree more. I used to do tech m&a and 250–300 hours a month was expected. The billable hour model was terrible for creativity and results in super high turnover in what is otherwise an interesting and dynamic profession.

I now run a fintech startup and hate when my guys say “I’ll be online later” or “I’ll be on call while in Burma.” I want densely packed quality work with plenty of chill time and happy lives outside of work. I’d be shooting myself in the foot if I let my best talent get burned out just for the sake of “putting in hours.”

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
