If you look into someone's life..

you're invariably going to find something you don't like. Its the price you pay for looking.



I read elexa's post about being fired. For something that she put on a community, in a journal. This annoys me. It annoys me because, its none of the company's business, quite frankly. How did they even know? Did someone tell them and they looked it up? Or did they use that "Nice" software to take a snapshot of it?
I remember a time when I would have been shocked to hear such a thing. I would have thought she did something else to deserve being fired. Granted, all I have is her post that she was fired simply for that...but still, what bothers me is I'm not shocked. I'm not automatically thinking there's something else there that's going on. What bothers me is that when it comes right down to it, I've lost faith in a company I used to absolutely adore. I used to believe that the CV&B's meant everything...and I'm seeing that they mean shit. Except when they are able to be used to the corporate advantage. This company used to care - used to care for its customers and its employees. I don't see that anymore.
I used to tell people all the time where I worked. I didn't hesitate. I used to recommend service to people online who were having issues. "You can't connect well? Have you tried ..?" I used to babble on about how great the company was...and be offended when someone said they had a horrible experience and hated my company. Now, I just shrug and think its par for the course.
And this NICE software? I remember when my call center manager sat up there at a department meeting and assured us that it was for training purposes only. Perhaps my definition of 'training' is different. It just seems that its being used for spying on us. If you look into my life, willingly, intentionally...don't bitch about what you find. You have no business. Its *my* life...*my* journal. If you can't hack it, get the fuck out. If you don't like the fact that you're employees are being negative, get your head out of your ass (Yes, I know, a small dark hole is always comforting, but try it anyway), and take a look at why. I guarantee you'll find a few reasons.

You know, I remember when the CV&Bs used to stand for something. Shortly after the merger was announced and all the changes started happening, I got really worried about how disorganized the company was becoming. It looks like my leaving after almost a year was a good thing, because things haven't really gotten any better than they were.

But then again, I was a Mindspring employee. I never ONCE considered myself an Earthlink employee even after the merger, because I didn't believe that the company had been holding true to the CV&Bs as they were originally set.

Mindspring kicked ass. Earthlink, in my experience, was not a pleasant work environment.

Oh, and hi :) I noticed you added me today, but could you tell me WHO you are? :)

Re:
I'm me ;) I got you through..rayce or someone. I can't remember now. Maybe through archmage.

Re:
I was wondering if we'd actually met in person or not. Being that you're an Earthlink employee, I figure we probably have at one point or another.

And I'm *always* at the Mercury on the weekends, so likely you've seen me there as well.

Re:
I don't frequent the Merc, and its entirely possible. I used to be on Chris' team (6-3) and now on Joe's team (9:30-6:30). Mouthy short girl usually with reddish blonde hair (at one time, blue). *smirks*
