Valve Engineer Fired

Valve has fired Jeri Ellsworth, an engineer working on their hardware ambitions, reports Ellsworth, tweeting: "Yup. Got fired today. Time for new exciting projects." In September she told Engadget her team was working on Steam's assault on the living room, and spoke of their hopes of getting prototype Steam hardware into gamer's hands this year. This seems noteworthy as we don't recall hearing of any previous firings at Valve, where the management structure is famously unstructured. Thanks GamesIndustry International.

My God! I can just see J. Edgar Hoover spinning in his grave!

Remember the employee handbook that was leaked awhile back? When I looked through that, for some reason, Jonestown and "Drinking the Koolaid" came to mind.

That could be it too. I've worked for one or two companies down through the years like that. I did not last long, nor did I want to anyway. The only thing creepier than companies like that are the people that actually enjoy working for them. *shudder*

Lol best quote from Gamasutra comments....


From the handbook: Gabe Newell is not your boss. No one is your boss. But of all the people who are not your boss Gabe is the most not your boss.

If this strikes you Orwellian, I doubt you are the only one.
