Square is one of the hottest companies in Silicon Valley right now, and it’s led by Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey.Just like any other company, though, it has some cultural faux-pas. There’s a big list of them on Quora, but here are some of our favourites:

  • Not tipping well. Dorsey initiates every new employee by taking a Square payment from them. The minimum payment you can make is $1 and you have the option to add a tip. ¬†Kay Luo, a former Square employee, says you should definitely add a tip.
  • Not wearing plaid at least once a week.
  • Not having a Twitter account.¬†Dorsey did create Twitter, after all.
  • Not liking coffee.
  • Using a PC. Most new-wave Silicon Valley types aren’t big fans of PCs.
  • Using a BlackBerry. Twitter’s most integrated with the iPhone and BlackBerry phones are pretty dated by now.
  • Wearing a suit. This is pretty uncommon in Silicon Valley.
  • Disliking the Tempest. (We believe this is referring to a bar in San Francisco, not the Shakespearean play).
  • Passing out business cards. Just connect on Twitter or LinkedIn.
  • Not pushing in your chair. Sounds like Dorsey and Square are a little sensitive about their office.
