yarwest28245ywhy did you get fired tho? budget cuts?
tytho24205ySo frustrating... But they don't deserve you.
I would contact a lawyer.. But that's just my two cents
It's been a few years.
Fired for not finishing projects fast enough. The 3 main projects I worked on there, I was either waiting on content from client, or image/theme updates from designer. 2 of the projects were still unlaunched a year after I was gone.
I had the IE bug fixes down in 15 minutes. I worked through lunches and an hour over daily(mostly to avoid traffic)
1 client deployed a dev version of their site for testing, then wanted me to make changes on my copy, and email them line by line what changes to make on theirs.
I collected unemployment, but never had I had those kinds of problems before. I've been with my current company nearly two years and we're all happy as shit.
Glad everything turned out well.
Been there buddy. Immediately after my rage quit / firing everything went Drupal and responsive to replace an aging proprietary CMS that the original developer never wrote comments for and ditched right before me and the junior, then turned senior developer quit.
I freelanced for 5 years afterwards. See my other rants about how we got back at the VP for using spyware on us.
here in India they don't fire people who don't finish project, they fire people with this algo -
empid = rand()
