Company Won't Replace One Computer, Wastes Thousands of Dollars

There are few companies where management actually knows what's going on.

Company Forces Employee to Use All His Vacation Days, Incapacitates Company

It's another one of those unfair changes in policy made by management with zero foresight. It seems like a huge company should be able to adapt when their employees use the benefits they promise to give. In a similar story, here's a guy who came up with a masterful plan when told he had to work on vacation.
