re: Laid Off, and Leaving Telecom This is actually meant to be a serious post.

I think LightReading should sponsor a contest called: "Guess the number of Orange Jump Suits".

Here's how I see it playing out...

Play it like a horse race. Put the list of the 15 most critically watched companies:
* WorldCom
* Qwest
* Global Crossing
* etc.

Then, have readers guess how many employees/executives will be indicted by Christmas time (election day is a better bet).

Then, sort of like the Tri-fecta at a race track, you select winners for a prize of some sort.

It would be fun and illuminating. Who knows? Some of the posts might uncover some leads for the DOJ and SEC to pursue.

Fun with a public service...oh, and it would increase bandwidth demands...so, it is self-serving, too.

re: Laid Off, and Leaving Telecom 400 is a small goal. Why not make it 500?

re: Laid Off, and Leaving Telecom It's very easy to buy the IP of a pre-IPO dying start-up. Just make them an offer and the board will accept. Since the board is mostly investors, recovering even a percentage of their investment is usually what they are looking for.

The offer is for cents on the dollar of what was invested, the key employees are happy to have a job.

re: Laid Off, and Leaving Telecom that won't stop, or even slow down, american ceos exporting those jobs to india. They only care about making the next quarters numbers, even if they are destroying americans industrial base to do so.... It's looking like the gulf war will be the last war were americans have a technological edge....

re: Laid Off, and Leaving Telecom That's true. In most of the companies, only 9 or 10 days are off as national holidays. If the occasion for holiday falls on a week-end, the number could become lesser, unlike in US where most of the holidays are either on Monday or Friday.

holidays and 3 weeks PTO. it has changed. 5 yrs
ago, 4-6 weeks PTO must have been common.
