Everyone loves a sale or a discount — after all, saving money just feels good. If you sit back and think about it for a minute you can probably recall the last time you took advantage of a special offer to save a few bucks. There is also a good chance that the discount was responsible for your purchase.
3. Job Seeker?

After 13 years of working on shit I didn’t care about, after the boredom, the depression, after all the crap I endured from bosses who expected 60 hour weeks and still gave me a hard time about taking a week off here or there, after feeling like there MUST be more to life than Corporate America™…

For a company that focuses on upholding a value of transparency, this feels like a pretty noteworthy change.
We have a few theories as to why this trend might be happening:
- A growing team means it can be a bit intimidating to post in a “big” channel
- Often you only need to talk with one person about a topic
- With our return to more typical management, perhaps more messages are coming down from team leads
Rather than assume, we’re taking this trend to the team to get their thoughts. We’ve programmed our OfficeVibe Slack surveying tool to ask teammates how we might be able to support more transparent conversations.
When we know more, we can brainstorm some experiments to potentially change this ratio.(DM-free Fridays? More small rooms? What would you suggest?)

Just a few weeks ago, apparently out of frustration when Donald Trump edged closer in polls, Hillary Clinton bashed Trump supporters by calling half of them “deplorables.” She quickly regretted it for the ensuing PR blunder. In reality, she was certainly wrong. Even two of my friends, who can’t be more removed from her portrayal also told me that they were leaning for Trump. You may think they are denizens of the dark red states in the Deep South. Wrong. They live in the bluest of the blue: New York and Maryland. When asked why, “you see,” they confided, “one is untrustworthy and the other is crazy.”
