"We work hard here at Foundry, but our CEO didn't write the memo," says a company spokesperson.
The fake email apparently made its debut back in March and, for reasons unknown, enjoyed a resurgence of late. The document states that "each employee will be asked to volunteer to work three Saturdays each month and two Sundays each month, in addition to his or her regular work hours."
It also promised a free lunch to weekend workers, but everyone knows there's no such thing.
Enough fake news, for now. Let's take a summertime swim through the past week's most interesting hirings, firings, and other employment news:
Employees at the company are said to be excited about the change in leadership, according to a source at Force10. Another source close to Force10's board of directors tells Headcount that Dubey's management style was partly responsible for VP of marketing Steve Mullaney's departure in April (see Flack You!).
