For him a win for his company a fail and if I was an employee there I'd be a little nervous.

Quote:
In his blog, Mr Valentine describes the employee as being in his mid-40s with a "relatively long tenure with the company, family man, inoffensive and quiet. Someone you wouldn't look at twice in an elevator", ABC News reports.


Since these appear to be the universal hallmarks of someone who could quite easily go off the deepend. 8O

I don't see any difference between this and farmers who bring in cheap foreign workers, or like Tim Hortons, or large mining or oil sands projects. Like the paper said, if he had been smart enough to have the Chineses developers report to him rather than directly through the company computer system it looks to me that it is just following the trend.

Now when we look around, who else might be having their ideas developed in this ultimately capitalist procedure? :idea:

Pretty sharp, pay someone else $50k per year to do his job and pocket the rest.

Quite literally, money for nothing!

Talk about the American dream! :lol:

I don't see any difference between this guy outsourcing his job or some company doing it instead. At least this guy made some money on the deal.

I'm saying that as someone who heard that his job had been outsourced five times between 2001-2009.

Win for the guy, 200k a year for a bit of unique 'cheating'.

Fail too, as he's shown the company that it's wasting 200k a year on him.

Clever but not clever enough. You would think that as a computer guy, he would have known they'd check the VPN logs. But maybe he's not that kind of computer guy. Also dumb is saving the invoices on his work computer. If he was smart, he'd have it sent to his personal email and save it on a flash drive. I bet he got a nice severance cheque and a quiet exit so the company could save face.
