KF: If your next post is another "something happenin' soon!" post three months from now, I will personally round up all the other posters ITT and get them to beat you with bars of soap while you sleep, a la Private Pyle in Full Metal Jacket.
I was going to bump this yesterday but decided not to as whats the point....
Can we assume that he is still working there and was offered such great compensation that he couldn't/shouldn't bad mouth said company anymore.
You are half right. I do have to keep a little quiet about my former company.
Sorry for lack of updates. I took a bit of a break from 2p2.
Have a new job in a new industry doing exactly what I want.
It's everything I could ask for.
Boss is an *******. I'm working for myself.
And of course things can change, but right now I have more clients than I can handle.
I'm happier than I have been for 9 years.
I'll be starting a tumblr account soon about my exploits. But it'll be (semi) anonymous and minor details will need to be changed.
"I quit my job in January and started my own company. /end thread"
Great payoff after all the tough talk! I would wager than at least 80% of the stuff in this thread is made up or embellished. It's like the harborlaw of 4L.
Yeah and I don't think he took the company down with him... Obviously...
Whenever anyone says they are going to take the company down with them, you know nothing is going to happen. Unless the company is illegally smuggling vietnamese girl boys there is nothing they can do.... When employees feel like they are irreplacable they are 100% suprised to learn they are not.
But it is good to here Kingfish taliking about working for yourself. Working for yourself has a whole set of pros and cons that are different than working for others. I ran my own businesses for a long time, then I got fed up with it, and went to work for others for a while, but after dealing with that soul crush, I went back to running my own businesses, because while it has its problems it is simply a better fit for me.
Sent out a few PMs but because of some events and how they unfolded. If i were to give an accurate account of what went down and how it went down, then company X may become a bit too easily identified.
Sorry for the lack of updates. When/if the company eventually folds or is sold, I can give some more details. Because management is so incompetent, their exploits have become a bit too well known in my (former) industry. It's safe to say that if this were a Dilbert storyline, it would probably be rejected for being too far fetched.
But yes, I'm on my own now and loving life. Working a lot less (my choice) and having fun watching my daughter grow up .
