From the Wall Street Journal, on Jeff Bezos’s purchase of the Washington Post:
At Amazon, Mr. Bezos has instilled a culture of extreme focus on customer service and low prices. Amazon executives fly coach class, and some desks at Amazon’s Seattle headquarters are fashioned out of repurposed doors to remind employees to be frugal.
Those low prices gotta come from somewhere. And Amazon also presents a fascinating contrast with many of its new startup competitors, and their perk-centric cultures.
