Make sure you ask for three months severance in the employment agreement. Make sure it's worded in a way they can't weasel out of. This is exactly the kind of company I would start planning for litigation from day one. Having a big severance takes the fear out of being fired.


“You walk out of a conference room and you’ll see a grown man covering his face,” he said. “Nearly every person I worked with, I saw cry at their desk.”

Others cry; I litigate. :cool: However, if they give into my demand for a motionless, silent workplace, I will work my a$$ off for them.
