Now THIS is how you do a "We're happy to announce"

Just like the title says!

Now THIS is how you do a "We're happy to announce"

Postby Ducky » Fri Nov 18, 2011 11:55 am

Get to my outside job this morning and everyone is mulling around all happy (they brought in bagels) and a co-worker tells me to go check my email. I opened it and scan over the dreaded words "We're happy to announce..." DMS has struck the fear of jeebus into me over those words. Goes on to say people in X, Y, Z positions (mine in one of 'em) are going to be offered the opportunity to telecommute 3-4 days per week starting the week after Thanksgiving.

It goes on to say to enjoy some bagels, let 'em know if you want to telecommute and have a PC that isn't a piece of shit and go home with pay for the rest of the day while they work on getting everything set up. Oh, and by the way, we want to let you know we're going to be paying holiday bonuses early this year so people can do Black Friday shopping.

Now that's how you treat your workers. :D

You mean you never got your bagels from Demand? They only cost $5 a piece!

Demand doesn't give everyone free bagels. It picks out the best article and gives the author a ten-year supply to show how much it values all its freelancers.

That, or you get a discount on your next bagel if you purchase one at full price from Demand Deals.

Wow, Ducky! It's rare that any company does that stuff nowadays. Compare to my job: We're doubling/tripling up on work with shorter deadlines so that all of you can have Thanksgiving day off.

I worked 40 hours in two days because of our fantastic Turkey vacation day. :roll: Granted, I LOVE my job, but dayum!

Hooray for a workplace that doesn't get all 1984 on its employees!

Demand should be doing another round of unhiring soon, I'll bet. Just in time for Christmas! Happy Holidays!
