Belfort's employees worked extremely hard due to Stratton Oakmont's culture. This effort led to high output and a high standard of work. On the other hand, people made moral sacrifices for achievement.
When there is such a high degree of intensity, especially with money involved, people can make poor decisions. A balance is important when thinking about company culture.

Belfort and Stratton Oakmont made so many crazy decisions. While they paid the consequences for those choices, and this is by no means worthwhile, they also had a ton of fun.
Sometimes it makes sense to quit while you are ahead. Jordan Belfort had an opportunity to step back and walk away from the negative company culture. He let the comradery and the instant gratification outweigh the right decision to let someone else take over as CEO.
Social gatherings are a great way to build company culture. Stratton Oakmont was extremely creative about the events that they had. These activities created a stronger bond between people at the company and offered a fun, social outlet.
Be careful about what you are sacrificing for money or success. Jordan Belfort became an entirely different person once getting involved in Wall Street. He hurt the very people that he cared about and who cared about him.
