Watch the full episode here: youtube.com/watch?… Video Rating: 4 / 5 By News Guy 23 Comments Neojhun October 18, 2013 It’s all about being a Jerk or Pushover in the right places & time. In my case I’m a pushover when it comes to social & culture in the company. But when it comes to executing and operating responsibilities, I’m a Jerk. Something I learnt early on, “This is not a democracy, I am the dictator”. Peter Park October 18, 2013 Now that I think about it, I’ve yet to encounter a jerk as a boss. And I’d like to. As one of the interviewee said, it’s a challenge. And I need some incentive to be real productive at work : kontar72 October 18, 2013 People need to stop reading/watching CNET & Engadget. The Verge is all you need. rossuk123 October 18, 2013 Which one is josh then? Minimal Mo October 18, 2013 I think companies need to have two bosses; the jerk + the pushover. Why you ask? well its in our nature of how we work best. like in families: the mother + the father or even like Good cop bad cop. I cant think of any more right now but what im trying to say is that maybe business is just like running a big family. Tyler Correll October 18, 2013 A jerk or a pushover? They both suck. Why not someone who gives orders and does their job, but loves the employees? I’m sure there are a handful of these. jossc October 18, 2013 I’d say fired him Josh. Pablo Contreras October 18, 2013 I agree with the rest of the comments, your videos are so polished and cool to watch, you make something amazing out of a simple idea. Congratulations. Izo Sakallah October 18, 2013 Your videos are the best in class George Byers October 18, 2013 The Verge Is SOO good at video editing 😀 Nahuel Siviero October 18, 2013 idc, u know u think that every single time when some person do this so idc Nahuel Siviero October 18, 2013 is hard when u dont love what u do 😉 Chetan Bhawani October 18, 2013 Which is that wireless mic used by Nilay? shanklin07 October 18, 2013 A good boss doesn’t have to be a jerk or a pushover. Couldn’t they be both? CentiZen October 18, 2013 You don’t seem to have as good a grasp of it as you think you do. Enjoy yourself though. Quadlinguist here; and learning any new language is HARD Linkplay9 October 18, 2013 ohhh the irony. Paralyta October 18, 2013 I didn’t know that Kanye West had such a jerky boss. Michael Felton October 18, 2013 verge for the fucking win Décio Arruda October 18, 2013 I learned it in two years, I also speak French and, as I told you, native Portuguese. He was a freaking photographer, does he need to learn how to speak english to be able to take some cool photos?!? And yeah, I’ve noticed you learned English the wrong way due to your spelling too.. And in two years (it was actually 1.7 years) I can even sing half of Eminem’s songs while still preserving my good Portuguese and speaking moderate French. But a photographer doesn’t need to know what I do. Nahuel Siviero October 18, 2013 very impressive, my girlfriend is brazilian and i learn portuguese on the school like just like u so… 3 lenguages without so many effort, and japanese at the 30% is hard for ppl who dont have brain, i learn english in a game online and u say is hard? U.U Décio Arruda October 18, 2013 Doesn’t seem like so, I’m Portuguese (Europe) and I know how hard it is to learn another language. He knew simple stuff, fuck you. And trolling a troll is quite stupid, but someone had to do it.. theoneandonly5911 October 18, 2013 Yo! guys and girls that shop @ KARMALOOP, BRICKHARBOR & PLNDR can get an extra 20% discount off their entire order!
