Wayfair’s CEO has an end-of-year message for employees of the online furniture company: Don’t shy away from doing more work and blending your work with your life.

“Winning requires hard work. I believe that most of us, being ambitious individuals, find fulfillment in the joy of seeing our efforts materialize into tangible results,” CEO Niraj Shah said in a note to employees earlier this month celebrating the company’s recent success, and which a company spokesperson confirmed to CNN. “Working long hours, being responsive, blending work and life, is not anything to shy away from. There is not a lot of history of laziness being rewarded with success.”

      Not true really. Wayfair is just a drop shipping company, in a similar vein as Amazon. Except with actual customer service. You can search specifically for solid wood furniture, so you don’t end up with cheap MDF toy furniture, their reviews are accurate and not gamed, and their search has robust filtering so you can drill down and find exactly what you want. I buy a lot of shit from Wayfair that is definitely better quality than Ikea.

      That doesn’t mean their CEO isn’t a labor abusing bag of dicks. I still think they should unionize.
