Month end

Better fill out my hours in annoying project-by-project half-hour increments so they can get management approval in time for invoicing OHHH WAIT.

*swipes card and walks away*

Speaking (in case you missed the oblique reference) of my dear old Lionbridge, I hear they’re going through another round of lay-offs. My thoughts and best wishes go out to the remaining crew.

I think the kitchen sink, for example, is going to get six months’ notice on account of having been there more than 12 years.

    Again, sad news for Lionbridge, our former sweet home where we actually did good work for a long time and enjoyed big chuncks of it. Fucking sad. But not really that surprising.

    You really need to get as many current Lions (or maybe by then exes) to the book party in July for the latest news and gossip and commiserating.

      Chuncks?

      Anyway, yeah, I’m trying … problem is, many of them are away through the summer. Will keep nagging them.

      Wow. Just a fly on the wall here but I’m starting to wonder why Lionbridge is even pretending they’re going to exist for much longer. Very sad, but mostly for the employees who are your friends. Not so much for the corporate overlords. I feel about them similar to how I feel about brexit voters right now.

        I don’t know how the rest of the company is doing[1], but certainly the Finnish technical writing and localisation offices are dying.

        [1] Which sort of says it all about the company, really.

        I’m also sad for what Lionbridge Finland used to be, at its height. Oh well, I’ve found a better place. As has Chucky. So it’s good.
