they HAVE to be kidding...

My company recently sold a major asset to it's portfolio, which is why I was required to find a new job (which I have done, and I love, by the way!) The point is... this venture has been a huge investment to the company and they spent the past 5 years working on it and tyring to make it even more profitable.

Usually, when my company sells off a large portion of an asset they reward their employees (all the people that contributed to make the sale happen) with a token of their appreciation and a symbol that they can keep to remember their hard work on such a project. For the past few small sales I was involved with, I was given useless desk ornaments (glorified paperweights, really) but I thought for sure with the magnitude of this sale, my company would pull out the big guns and give us something much more superior... Boy was I was wrong.

They gave us a fake painting, with some really boring pictures (almost like stock photos) and some styalized text regarding the sale (for emphasis, I guess).

Seriously, they made like a million of these prints too, it couldn't have been cheap. Why didn't they just go buy us iPods instead, like we REALLY wanted!

hey you can work for my company and not get any recognition for your hard work like me..It's too bad the companies I've worked for can't recognize the hard workers. No wonder their turn around is so high.
