Amazon boss Jeff Bezos defends company’s workplace culture

The world’s biggest online retailer is firing back against reports of an abusive corporate culture.

A New York Times report over the weekend described a demanding and degrading environment at Amazon.

Amazon’s boss Jeff Bezos wrote in a memo to staff that the “article doesn’t describe the Amazon I know”.

The New York Times article quoted one former employee who said: “Nearly every person I worked with, I saw cry at their desk.”
