Andrew Cuomo Sounds Like a Fun Boss


Are you a young, eager political operative or civil servant hoping to join Andrew Cuomo in his quest to reform Albany forever? You may want to know what you’re getting into first. In a Times profile, Cuomo is presented as a demanding boss with high expectations, someone who garners respect or resentment from his subordinates and colleagues, depending on who you’re asking. Sometimes, he can get a little carried away, in a psychotic sort of way.

He makes people cry.

He ignores you completely if you displease him.

Worst of all, he forces his aides to spend car trips memorizing boring facts about towns in upstate New York.

This was reportedly an eight-hour car ride. Eight. Hours.
