A few days back Amazon announced about building its headquarters in New York’s Long Island City and the Virginia suburbs of Washington DC. The announcement came after a tough after-hours discussion between cities across the US who offered billions on contribution and investments to pursue Amazon.
But just before the company announced its multi-million dollar projects that are bound to bring more than 25,000 jobs in both the cities, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos had a separate meeting with his employees at the company’s headquarters in Seattle where he was asked some tough questions about the company’s direction going forward.
In the meeting that took place last Thursday, an Amazon employee asked Bezos about the company’s future. The employee wanted to know the lessons the company’s visionary founder had learned from recent turmoil in the retail sector, particularly the bankruptcy of American department store chain, Sears.
