    I worked with a guy who transferred from another office to my office. Folks at his original office tipped me off that when this guy had some computer problems, IT looked at his computer and found all kinds of child porn photos, which they deleted. He was not terminated or disciplined, just moved to another office like a pedophile priest. In fact, he accused the IT folks of stealing "his" files!

    When my boss was looking to lay off one or more people from the group, this guy wasn't on his list. I decided to inform the boss of this information and he was gone right away. He'd been kept all along because he always had plenty of work on his plate. I guess that's all that matters in the corporate world.

      I would imagine you've seen the Canadian documentary, The Corporation. If not, you might consider it. It's worth watching, although it can be depressing as well.

      The Corporation

      Netflix may not offer the extra disc with extra material. Really interested viewers may want to seek out the second disc.

      Cheers

      Most models are wrong, but some are useful.

        but I will check it out. Having spent 37 years in corporate America, I think I've seen the worst of things, but I'm sure there's more ;-)

        Thanks!
