Twitter Users Are Forced To Wait More Than An Hour For Elon Musk To Appear On Their Screens.
The report says that they can only speak after being spoken to.
The Washington Post reported that Elon Musk makes it a habit to make his Twitter visitors wait more than an hour before speaking with them. He also sometimes watches YouTube videos during meetings.
According to the newspaper, visitors must wait near the CEO’s 10th-floor conference rooms. They are also told not to speak in front of Musk.
Since Musk took over Twitter nearly two months ago, Musk’s leadership style has been heavily criticized. Musk fired some company top executives and has since laid off thousands of employees.
Tesla’s CEO also took away employee benefits and used Twitter polls for critical decisions. He then introduced policies, but they were quickly reversed.
Musk is also well-known for his headstrong work approach. He has been reported to have slept in Tesla factories during production runs. Musk has stated that he has slept in the company’s offices since he took over Twitter; other employees have also reported sleeping there.
Musk is “uncovering, solving, and programming all night,” according to a person close to him. Musk previously told staff that Twitter 2.0 would require “long hours at high intensity” and be “tough core.”
Musk seems to value face-to-face communication. Musk has scrapped Twitter’s remote work policies and told staff they must return to the office or resign unless there was a special exemption.
In a lawsuit, an attorney representing ex-Twitter workers claimed that the mandate for return-to-office broke promises made by Twitter executives and managers that employees would be able “to continue working remotely, at least for a year following Musk’s acquisition.”
An ex-employee filed the lawsuit claiming that the new policy regarding remote work was discriminatory. A former employee with a disability contended that he wasn’t given instructions to request an exception. Still, he did message his manager to say that he would not be returning to work for a while as he was “definitely not” because he was in “extra danger” from COVID-19. The lawsuit stated that Twitter sent him an email a few days later to inform him that he was being fired for violating company policy.
