Be skeptical about Facebook’s new work-from-home initiative.
It violates the company’s culture, which encourages employees to live at work, says Mark Sullivan at Fast Company.
I’ve been to Facebook’s Menlo Park campus a number of times, and it’s easy to understand why employees don’t often leave. Inside the massive complex, you get the same feeling as when you’re inside some huge Las Vegas casinos—that there’s just no reason to go outside.
Also, Facebook has a history of telling the public what it wants to hear, which often turns out to be bullshit.
