Magnificent

Advice from Facebook executive Andrew Bosworth to staff:

If you need to change teams, companies or careers to make sure your day-to-day life matches your passions, we will be sad to see you go, but we will understand.

What happened next, however, was less than magnificent.

    Behind the Wall of Pay – but I am guessing the Silicon Valley Techs, Programmers and HR Workers’ Soviets threatened to bring Spacechook down and forced the ‘management’ back in their box ?

    Someone tell us what he did wrong.

  5. Rebel with cause

    The context of this is Facebook employees getting super butthurt because one of their senior execs is a friend of Brett Kavanaugh and publically supported him at the Senate hearing.

    Honestly, these people have the emotional development of children.

    Bad man is bad. Men with bad man are bad. Stay away from bad men.

    Large corporations own regulators… the retrospective bribe.
    Should be ILLEGAL.

    Or ignored them.

    From a normal person’s or SJW’s point of view? The former, nothing. The latter, everything.

    His biggest error was to apologise. Never, ever, apologise. Say what you mean and mean what you say.

    If I want to find out what happened next I have to pay money to the WSJ.

    Reading this article has been a big disappointment.

    It’s a jobs merry-go-round. They make the regulations to ensure corporations* have to hire people like them to deal with the regulations.

    The corruption starts from when they make the regulations. Hiring them later is just a necessity brought on by the nature of the regulations. Which are design so you have to hire regulators. Did I make myself clear?

    *corporations can live with it but it kills SMEs. Maybe that’s the intent.
