Revelations about the luggage brand’s internal culture reveal a fundamental divide over a complicated question: When does office “hustle” become workplace abuse?
The spectacular fallout from a recent investigation into Away, which portrayed the beloved luggage company as a toxic workplace, has revealed two schools of thought on how to treat startup employees.
