How to motivate employees, the sequel|
If you weren't quick, you might not have seen a snippet of email that I posted from my boss with a surprisingly personal insult in it. He's apologized, and I've mostly forgiven him.
Although... one of these days when I'm self-employed, episodes like this won't happen. As much.
Current Mood: Weekend. Nuff said.
Holy shit! You mean he was serious? That wasn't tongue-in-cheek?

Mostly he's an OK guy, though. If this happens again, though, I'm going to feel very uncomfortable reporting to a guy who doesn't respect me.
I don't know if that means moving within the studio, moving within the company, finding a new employer, or start writing up a business plan.
Hopefully I won't have to consider that question for a while.
I thought it was tongue-in-cheek, too. How awful. Somebody's management skills are leaving quite a bit to be desired, if he's that inept at keeping himself out of what could be defined as hostile work territority in a courtroom... Good luck managing this one out until you're self-employed, independently wealthy, and hiring this guy to clean your toilets!

one thing I can never be accused of is quickness.
so, I missed it.
But I know how you feel. My boss is a bitch and emails me shit all the time. luckily, though, i can kick her ass. oh, and she lets me wear my jammies to work. pros and cons to everything, man. ;)

I don't know if your boss is going to be hiring anytime soon, but I want a boss just like that. One of these days.
Heh. "Grace under pressure". Yeah, that sort of defines the whole issue.

My admittedly uninformed interpretation was that he saw you mainly as a code machine and not a creative designer and wanted you to limit your contributions along those lines.

I'm so ready for this to happen for you that I was conscious, some time ago, of the fact you'd let cinesthesia.com lapse and found myself hoping you'd simply come up with another better domain.
