    A look at his browsing history revealed what his typical work day consisted of:
    • 9:00 a.m. – Arrive and surf Reddit for a couple of hours. Watch cat videos.
    • 11:30 a.m. – Take lunch.
    • 1:00 p.m. – Ebay time.
    • 2:00ish p.m. – Facebook updates – LinkedIn.
    • 4:30 p.m. – End of day update e-mail to management.
    • 5:00 p.m. – Go home.
    Sounds like a typical manager to me

  • I read this story this morning and the first thing that came to my mind was "Are cat videos so addictive that it can consume almost 2 and half hours per day?". The 2nd thing was "Why did it take them over 6 months to figure out that he was slacking off?
    Moral of the story: Use time tracking software for your employees, especially when you outsource.

    Heres my take on this.

    His bosses were getting the results they wanted at a price (his wage) they were clearly happy to pay.

    So he was smarter than them, thats why they fired him, they (his bosses) are idiots, he was most certainly not. If they'd have embraced his approach , they could now be saving $$$ , left him and others like him in charge of the relationships etc, responsible for getting it all done, and still be raking in the $$$ at the till.

    They seem to want dumb business over smart business

    Obviously the guy knows how to lower production costs. They should've made him the CFO. But then he would've replaced all of them.

    If he was doing this for over 6 months and they thought he was doing good work, then I don't see the problem. Every one wins in this scenario. The company gets what it is paying for, the employee gets paid and the outsource employee gets paid. That is a very rare Win-Win-Win situation.

    Heck, the company could get even more 'wins' by having the employee who was outsourcing take on another outsourced worker at 1/5 the cost of a US worker.

    Of course, I know there are other issues - like security and non disclosure and such - but the idea is great. Heck, this company would be stupid if they hire to replace him. Just use his the firm in China for 1/5 the cost!
