Back to office

So Boundless is making us go into an office now. No more working from home. This was a rough week driving into Chandler from BFE. I left early bc rff it. It’s Friday and I’m not spending 1.5 hours in traffic every Friday afternoon. Get used to it, bc... — read more 


How do we get info on what BL has been up to? I know they are not a part of Pearson anymore but I don't see they have a page on here that exists and I don't think just anyone can create one.

Full of Lies

Regent flat out lied to Zulily staff. Told them they had 60 days but then chopped them days before Christmas. They will do the same thing to us. I wonder if they are paying any of our contractors or if our software will just one day not work... — read more

HE next?

Now that the ecumenical TAS is running HE, will they be next for the chopping block? Especially now that there’s a hiring freeze in place? He’s made more cuts than Gillette.

Mid-way point

That’s the call out from KB in an email to staff that went out this week. Same blah blah except that our new Regent owners want us to be working back in offices. Because….? So let me get this straight…we know we’re going to be working in an office... — read more
