+ - Former Valve Hardware Designer was 'Stabbed in the Back'-> 2

Submitted by DavidGilbert99
DavidGilbert99 (2607235) writes "Jeri Ellsworth has opened up about her time at games developer Valve and has hit out strongly at teh so-called flatpack management structure. She says that despite Valve's claims of a democratic structure, there is a layer of powerful management in place and when she was fired she felt like she had been stabbed in the back. "If I sound bitter, it's because I am. I am really, really bitter.They promised me the world and then stabbed me in the back.""

Former Valve Hardware Designer was 'Stabbed in the Back'

Comments Filter:
  • That doesn't surprise me too much. On the upside, the fact that Valve gave her and her co-worker free reign with their AR project should make her just a wee bit less bitter. Especially if it happens to become a success.
  • It sounds a bit like the kind of things you expect a sociopath to say. There's this egocentric perspective to her words, and the emotional manipulation going on feel a little off. The kicker was that she was fired for being abrasive. Way to dismiss that myth, lady.
