Listen Now: Weird Company Rules: Telsa, Amazon, Disney & More
Every company has rules, and no matter how weird, these aren’t made to be broken.
According to MSN Money, some of the most famous companies in the world are built on rules that might raise a few eyebrows. For example, job candidates at Tesla are warned not to wear any type of fragrance to a job interview. A profile by Wired magazine explained that CEO Elon Musk has such a sensitive nose that certain odors agitate him. It would be hard to work for someone who couldn’t stand your smell.
Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos had a rule when the company was beginning that every team should be small enough to share two pizzas during a meeting. This was done as a cost-saving exercise and to ensure maximum efficiency.
