I think you posted a link to the iPad ad that pops up each time you go to the forums page. I'm guessing you posted the wrong link?

Still has the iPad ad, but it at least has the article behind it this time. The phone must have copied the wrong url.

Cool article. My previous employers that I did not like certainly had more of the "knaves" than the places I enjoyed working for. I can think back to most of my coworkers that I couldn't stand and they also fit this description. Seems like all companies could use this approach.

yea, I try to shut down "knaves" - those people annoy the crap out of me haha.

Work is work. Shocker, right? I come on here to vent, I don't vent to my coworkers. Don't disparage. I think the way I left my last job is probably the greatest "fuck you" I could ever give, and it was entirely professional in every way, with nothing negative said at all. The guy was pisssssed, visibly so (like he was purple), precisely because I was polite and said nice things to everyone on my way out the door.

And then I come here, where the culture is amazing. It really is. But on a few occasions, people have complained about being here. It just blows my mind. I think, "have you never been in a toxic environment?" I love being here. I actually enjoy the work I do, I enjoy the people I work with. It's really cool being in a position like that. So I call them out on it. Apparently I did it front of the CFO in an elevator, got a $50 gift card for Chili's and a little note praising me for standing up for the company. I just hope that guy didn't get in shit for what he said.

Knaves...bleh. I like the term. I'm using it.

In other news, now I'm looking at Matlab.
