HE KEEPS BRUTALLY INSULTING HIS EMPLOYEES
The billionaire has an array of hyperbolic and harsh insults he tends to spew at the unfortunate targets of his ire with such anger that a blood vessel bulges on his head. Amazon veterans have actually collected a greatest hits list of Bezos’ outbursts, which range from “Why are you wasting my life?” and “I’m sorry, did I take my stupid pills today?” to labeling his target incompetent or part of the “B-team.”
HE MAKES HIS EMPLOYEES WORK AGAINST EACH OTHER
According to the New York Times, Bezos and Amazon have thrown the concept of workplace harmony to the wind. Instead, employees are actively encouraged to eviscerate each others’ ideas in meetings, and the company’s internal phone directory even features instructions on how to give secret feedback about their coworkers to their bosses. The system is called the Anytime Feedback Tool, and using it to snitch on a fellow worker is so simple that it even provides sample texts, such as: “I felt concerned about his inflexibility and openly complaining about minor tasks.” Multiple employees say the tool is often used to sabotage colleagues, and some have even devised smear campaigns where an unpopular coworker has been buried with multiple bad reviews.
HIS DIVORCE AND ALLEGED SEXTING SCANDAL
On January 9, 2019, Jeff Bezos announced on Twitter that he and his wife of 25 years, MacKenzie Bezos, were divorcing. According to USA Today, an extramarital affair may have something to do with the divorce, as multiple tabloids claimed Bezos had developed a relationship with former TV anchor Lauren Sanchez. Some have even released private messages in which Bezos is said to flaunt his strangely robotic sexting skills: “I love you, alive girl,” he allegedly wrote to Sanchez. “I will show you with my body, and my lips and my eyes, very soon.”
