PreMortem: Wasn't EA recently voted worst company to work for?
itsdan: PreMortem: Wasn't EA recently voted worst company to work for?Worst company period. Almost as if investors don't care what you're doing as long as the money is coming in.
adm_crunch: Or the value of the dollar is shiatting the bed.
Lando Lincoln: Rich people and people living on mutual funds are really enjoying themselves, I bet.
Land Ark: It's not hard to make a ton of money when you realize that when jobs are scarce you can fire a bunch of people and make the employees you have left work three times as hard because they are afraid of losing their jobs.Oh, and you don't need to give them more money either.The stock market has completely recovered and is at record highs, profits are way up, high dollar real estate has reverted back to bubble status, and top level pay and incentives are in the stratusphere.The people who run things telling us that it's a "tough economy" is the only reason the economy is tough (for some).Where I work our stock is at it's highest value ever, profits are up, we met all our goals, and need to hire more people because the work is flooding in. But because we didn't meet our made-up ridiculous profit goals made during the biggest recession of most of our lives BY ENOUGH (yes, we were in range, but not high enough in the range to someone's likings) we'll probably have to have all the experienced people retire early and then maybe even go through layoffs. Yes, it's a good time to be on top.
Bullseyed: Fark liberals who think they know anything about the economy are funny.This is a stock rise created by investment companies to encourage people to invest in the stock market.
Bullseyed: Fark liberals who think they know anything about the economy are funny.This is a stock rise created by investment companies to encourage people to invest in the stock market. They manipulate the indices by making or holding off on trades. Once people have bought in, they will resume normal activity and make a huge profit off gullible investors who think "the market is recovering".The market is like the weather. It just "is" it exists. It is not recovering or worsening. Rain and sun are both normal and beneficial events.
ajgeek: Wall Street is not the economy!
