- Why Companies Fire People, Not Fancy Snacks – This is a fantastic piece that shows how many servings of free office food would have to be consumed to equal laying off one person.
Layoff suck, but they happen. I hate the "lets take all the perks away" belt-tightening. Why? Because after you've made the office a dreary place to work You'll Still. Have. To. Lay. People. Off.
So at least try and keep the remaning folks happy and productive.
By day, I'm a product manager serving a group of fantastic engineers at Square.
By night, I fight crime and solve mysteries with a robot pal of my own creation.
By midday, I like a snack, generally a cookie.
Part of this biography isn't true (hint, I like cookies and engineering, I don't own a robot).
