We've Got The Neutron Bomb

Admiral Akbar: It's A Trap! Just a word of warning to anyone that might be employed at ePrize... If your boss ever tells you that they've got a plan for you and your career path: run. Get that resume out and start pounding the pavement (I know, I know, it's hard when you're working 100 hours a week to find time to interview or even put a CV together).

"A Plan" can take shape in several ways:
  1. It's a carrot. If you do a good job with this, we'll create a new position for you or move you to the department you want.
  2. It's a set-up. We want to put you in a position where you're destined to fail so we can get rid of you.
  3. It's a bluff. We want to keep you around so we'll tell you that we've had you on a career path you weren't even aware of.

Or, keep feeding us great ideas for a career path, and we'll give the career to someone else.

That one was my favorite.

But then again it hard to use the word career and ePrize in the same sentence, I'm not a blood relative.

Diz -- It doesn't necessarily take blood. You could go to the same temple. That helps. It's a hotbed for recruiting.
