I have yet to find (or create) the ideal working environment.
However, after watching Oprah Primetime’s teaser about ‘Zappos’ whose CEO has no suit, I am certain that there is hope for the working class :)
One thing for me to note, is that the employees over at Zappos has a sense of ownership over the company they are working for. And, they remember the 10 values! Which explains why they can work and have crazy fun together, because everyone is aligned to each others vision.
Great CEO+great employees=great company. A perfect combi.
