Unrealistic Expectations

Our two cents on the Yelp employee who got fired after publishing a piece on how hard working at Yelp was: Good for her. I'm sure she expected to be fired - now anywhere she goes she'll stand out in an interview. Side note about employee expectations: everyone wants to make more money. I do, you do, and our interns do. But it's not an employer's job to pay someone as much as possible; it's an employer's responsibility to treat people fairly, and with respect, hopefully, and to give them honest feedback. I'm not sure what Ms. Jane's intention was in writing the piece, but I'm glad she did: it's opened up cool discussions in our office, and I hope yours too.
