My buddy Cam got fired today. But wait. There's more...
Not only did Cam get fired...Cam also posted on his blog the emails that brought his career with "the company" to a halt.
Personally (being one of the people that escaped "the company" for pretty much the same reasons that Cam complained about), I don't see his firing as being a bad thing. It's kind of like when you're dating a total tool, and they break up with you...really, its not a bad thing...its more of a good riddance.
What kills me is the amount of company's out there that will chew up and spit out good talent and not even blink an eye. Company's that see developers and IT staff as mere resources to produce revenue instead of people who help fuel and drive a business.
So Cam, welcome to the ex-"the company" club. We'll get you your card and welcome package in the mail. And seriously, its a good club to be in.
