Strangely, this is something that I learned at a very young age (when I was about 15).
My father's cousin was a financial director at a megacorp. Guy was the hardest working pro I have ever seen. Even took files wih him during summer vacation.
He ended being fired overnight after working his butt off for 15+ years at that company.
Made me realize working hard is no guarantee of respect. In any company.
@ParadeGrotesque When I first handed in my resignation, my boss was pissed at the fact he'd have to give up his vacation to train somebody new, rather than replacing a loyal, long term employee.
