Elon Musk bashed remote work in a meeting with Twitter employees on Thursday — after dialing in 10 minutes late from what appeared to be a hotel room.
The Tesla CEO, who has committed to buying Twitter for $44 billion, told jittery Twitter staffers that it is “much better if you are on location physically” while working, according to multiple reports on the meeting.
However, Musk said that Twitter could make exceptions for the very best employees.
“If someone can only work remotely and they’re exceptional, it wouldn’t make sense to fire them,” Musk said.
Following the meeting, some Twitter employees circulated memes about how to make themselves seem “exceptional” so they could continue to work remotely, CNBC reported.
The social media company currently allows most employees to work remotely indefinitely.
During the highly-anticipated event, Musk appeared to ignore the irony of demanding employees come into the office while showing up late to a virtual meeting.
Musk’s internet connection seemed to be spotty and his sound cut out at points during the meeting, according to reports.
“Anyone who wishes to do remote work must be in the office for a minimum (and I mean *minimum*) of 40 hours per week or depart Tesla,” Musk wrote in an email to corporate staff earlier in June. “This is less than we ask of factory workers.”
“If there are particularly exceptional contributors for whom this is impossible, I will review and approve those exceptions directly,” Musk added. “Moreover, the ‘office’ must be a main Tesla office, not a remote branch office unrelated to the job duties.”
