9 Coworkers Fired
Hey guys, just some sobering news.
I work for a Fortune 250 company. My department is full of highly skilled folks that range from Mathmeticians to MBA business types (all earning 6 figures or better). We each carry one or more high end government clearances as well.
The work atmosphere is great and the team is very strong... or it was until last week.
From one E-mail sent in 2004, which contained nude pictures (assume comparable to an NWS post here), all recipients that replied and/or forwarded it have been terminated. The E-mail was found during a spot check of some old Exchange backups.
I know boys will be boys and such, but please learn from this. Most companies have zero tollerance policies, which means the moment you're on the other side of that line there are no life rafts.
And whatever you do, don't get so comfortable that you forget your work PC is not your home PC.
Dress for the slide & not the ride
