In the tech industry, some companies rely on taskmaster bosses and long hours to beat out competitors. Others nurture employees with flexible schedules and perks like free food and Ping-Pong tables.
What’s the better approach is a lively subject of debate on Twitter and elsewhere following a recent New York Times article that painted a harsh, demanding environment at Amazon, the world’s largest retailer.
The article called Amazon’s workplace "an experiment in how far [the company] can push white-collar workers". Tech professionals joined the debate by posting opinions on the online version of The New York Times article, which has attracted 4200 comments.
