According to a report, Elon Musk, the new CEO of Twitter, has turned some office spaces into cramped sleeping accommodations at the company’s San Francisco headquarters.
Some of the hallmarks of the rooms include unmade mattresses, dull drapes, and enormous conference room telepresence monitors. Not only that, but one of the rooms also contains two office armchairs, a table lamp, a queen bed, and vivid orange carpeting.
The mattresses are believed to be for the last remaining “hardcore” employees who can stay and work late at the office, according to a source at Twitter. However, no announcement or context has been given to the employees.
“It’s not a good look. It’s yet another unspoken sign of disrespect. There is no discussion. Just like, beds showed up,” a source said.
According to the report, there are four to eight-bedroom pods each floor, and they appear to be cosy.
Elon Musk’s recent ultimatum
Musk gave hundreds of Twitter employees a choice to sign up for “long hours at high intensity” or quit last month. At least half of Twitter’s staff have been let go by the new owner, while some have quit due to the demanding work environment.
Following their refusal to endorse Elon Musk’s “hardcore,” some Twitter employees in the Boston office recorded a countdown to their termination.
Former Twitter employees Matt Miller and his coworkers recorded a video where they counted down to their termination. In the lead-up to losing access to the company’s portals, the group kept a countdown using a new year style.
It’s been a ride, Mr Miller captioned the tweet on Twitter.
The “Chief Twit” didn’t appear to be concerned, even in the face of the most recent development in the protracted story of Twitter under Elon Musk’s authority. I’m not overly concerned because the finest workers are staying, Elon Musk tweeted.
Notably, since the internet mogul gained control of Twitter last month, he has let go of a work-from-home policy, imposed lengthy hours, and fired nearly 50% of the workers.
