I knew most of these, but I really liked #7, #9 and #11.
7. 37signals doesn’t have a marketing person or marketing strategy. Anyone can tweet or publish blog posts without going through editors or an approval process.
9. If one job candidate is slightly better than another in their core skill but a worse writer, 37signals hires the better writer.
11. 37signals employees aren’t offered equity or stock. “I don’t believe in paper money – well, I believe in 5s, 10s, 20s, 50s, 100s – but I don’t believe in certificates,” said Fried. “I don’t believe in future payment possibly if you hit the lottery.”
