We own you

Increasingly, companies are demanding cult-like devotion. Do whatever it takes; sacrifice whatever you’ve got. It’s no longer enough to punch in, put in a solid day’s work, and go home. Now, you’re expected to be on Slack 247, use your social network to promote the company, recruit friends to the team, go to events in the evening, and use your personal equipment.

All of this would be fine if employees benefited from their sacrifice in the same way their bosses do. But they don’t.
