The Silicon Valley Diet : Richard Grayson March 13, 2013

Posted by sandyclaus in Geek Culture, Geeksploitation.

But the upside of being downsized is making a lot of money when your company stock soars after the announcement of your layoff. I had a fat severance and good positions in AOL, Amazon.com and Yahoo. Unemployment was no more troublesome than the expiration of my frequent flyer miles. Finding a new job just meant driving to another office-park campus with dopey street names (Disc Drive, Resistor Road, Infinite Loop) to endure more geeksploitation in exchange for dead Presidents, stock options, a flexible schedule, no dress code, and all the junk food I could eat.
