Go, Read: NYT Peers Into Amazon.com As A Physical Workplace And Describes Its Workplace Culture
There are two big reasons you might want to read the much-lauded, much passed-around New York Times article on Amazon.com's workplace culture. The first is that Amazon is a major, major seller of comics. A direct examination is pertinent. Second, the techniques used to make exhausted people redouble their efforts might be familliar to those that have worked at a comics company where the work itself takes on an "our glorious mission" type resonance.
I might caution against accepting without reservations claims made in any article that count on young folks' self-appraisal of how much they work and to what effectiveness, but I'm sure the broad strokes here are true.
