It's timely that this post appears tonight on Perlmonks, and is also the Best Node of the day. A couple of people at the company I work at were 'cut' recently, and I'm beginning to feel more than a little paranoid about the security of my own job.
I've been working hard recently on a project with a vague, changing specification and an impossible deadline. The first part's almost done, and another guy is going to be taking over for the second part while I get up to speed on his stuff (which is similar -- there are only two of us familiar with this collection of code). And I smell a fish, because once he's up to speed on my stuff (not that I've been hoarding information), I'm expendable.
Thanks lots for your post -- I hope I don't need it any time soon. I've tagged it for a more complete read later on.
