Inside the all-hands meeting that led to a third of Basecamp employees quitting - The Verge:
Another employee said they had been thrown by the fact that the founders, after years of telling employees that they were part of an elite chosen few who were good enough to work at Basecamp, would get rid of them so easily.
“They just want to build cool shit all day,” the employee said. “They don’t want to deal with people, which is something you have to do as a manager … Jason and David just threw us away.”
Fascinating story about what happens when you don’t do your work.
