a comment for the espp engrossed:
why are you all so worried about espp when you should be worrying about how to work smarter and develop products that raise the f-in' stock price period? you are all so consumed with making money versus making products and enjoying your careers that i'd prefer you just leave the company. focus on doing great work and making good decisions and the money will come later. as a shareholder, i cry each time i look at at how the stock price plummets and wonder - what the hell are they doing over there? then i read your greedy comments and say - ah that's it, they are all trying to figure out how to make money for themselves even though they aren't doing great work. yeah, it sucks that you think work hard and aren't being rewarded through espp - WHICH IS A BENEFIT. boo-hoo.
ever think that actually making changes instead of just bitchin' on mini's site might actually be a better idea? maybe working and getting rewarded through reviews?
the last thing i want to hear you folks moaning about is espp. do the work to make customers and stockholders happy and we'll reward you by increasing your stock price. it'll pay off in espp AND your stock awards.
man, i could totally understand if you're upset about your hard won stock awards, but this takes the cake.
(Chicken, egg, vicious cycle and motivating benefits. How does it all come together? Don't you have to have stock to be motivated to raise it? And don't you first need to be motivated to buy / acquire stock?)
