Comment The rest of the company has different needs. (Score 2) 214

I used to work at a TV station. My two cents and the short version.

The business end of the company has different needs and goals than the engineering area. An example a marketing person should not be able to access the transmitter site. Put a firewall between Engineering and the rest of the company. That is your point of demarc. There is going to be data sharing between the areas, but that is the purpose of the firewall. Setup procedures and standards for company computing. Train or work with a designated engineer on company IT procedures. Let the IT engneer setup engineering procedures The engineers only need access to a subset of the company IT. Engineers PCs should log on to the domain or their trusted domain.. Everybody is happy.

I signed one. NEVER DO IT AGAIN. Previous poster is right US California law invalidates non compete clause. It does get sticky about derriative work. Unless they are willing to pay you for the next 6 months your salary after you leave, then HELL NO! Even after modifying the contract, command a very high price for your services. Unless they pay it, they are not worth working for. Personal opinion, ones man's experience.
