Just been made redundant from Full Tilt - Not sure if a beat or a brag?

I figured this was the best section of the forums to post this in

Just been made redundant from Full Tilt due to cut backs as the company is undergoing restructuring to get things back on track.

I would like to say that when I went to work for Pocket Kings (Full Tilt) I absolutely loved the company / brand and it was a dream come true to be able to work for the company I used to spend all my time playing on. However with all the recent **** that has been going on, like the vast majority of you, I started to feel let down and disappointed for lack of better words.

For the record, from all the people I personally knew in the company, we all felt / feel the same way about the whole situation as yourselves, indeed I still have a sizable amount of money on the site that I can not access, but we all stuck to our loyalty to the company and never talked to anyone about it (well, most of us didn't!)

Now that I have been unceremoniously relieved of my duty, I just feel let down by the company I gave my life and soul for.

I am not expecting ANY sympathy from this post, I can completely understand the resentment felt for the company, I would like to say however that none of the blame for this whole ****ty situation should fall on any of the regular employees who, on the most part are hard working dedicated, skilled employees who care about the company and the players on the site.

I guess after being told to stay quiet for so long by the company, now that I have been made redundant, I guess that doesn't apply anymore.

I am happy to talk / answer questions if there is any, however, I still have a loyalty to the company (even if they ****ed me in the ass!) and more so to the employees who are still there, so I will not give out any information that could potentially hurt them.

Let the "**** you, you deserve it" / "good, now you know how I feel" replies begin.

Again, I am not looking for sympathy, just needed to vent a bit. I genuinely hope that the situation is solved and everyone gets their money back - The same way 99.9% of the staff still there feel, please do-not give them a hard time, they just have a job to do and they do it well.

Edit: I don't know why you feel loyalty to the company unless doing so would open you up to some sort of liability tho---the company is essentially, the board, which is comprised of morons at best and crooks most likely

Definitely a beat, think of all the money you could have stolen from customers if you still worked there.

Joke, unlucky man that sucks

I still love Full Tilt, as I am sure many people do (even with the **** going on) - The loyalty is mostly for my fellow colleagues who are still there though.

Re: Just been made redundant from Full Tilt - Not sure if a beat or a brag?

FWIW, I think the vast majority of posters have been directing their FT ire onto the owners and board members. There will always be some random who will say something like "you deserved it for working for that scumbag company oh and by the way give me back my money your salary was paid with my money so pay up douchebag" but I think they are in the minority. They are also very stupid and should be pitied more than anything else.

Best of luck to you, and I'm sorry so many people got hurt by such a small group of rich, greedy, and incompetent *******s.

Nobody gives a **** that you lost your job. And I doubt you're going to have any relevant info to add to the small pile that's already been scraped up.

GL finding another job though.

Does FTP have any employees left? How many did they have at peak? I would think there's nothing left but to keep a few lawyers around and try to keep everyone out of jail and avoid other penalties as best possible.

Only the best of the best remain, unfortunately I was not one of those

I honestly don't think anyone did, certainly not myself anyway. We just did our jobs (well I may add) and got on with what needed to be done.

Oh and hope you get back on track...gl

No, employees were strictly forbidden to play on the site, there are no staff playing for/on the site, we did have company tournaments for staff only though.
