[Meme] Job Ethics

2 December 2022 @ 5:43 pm

Ethical development jobs may not be easy to find; some ethical jobs can turn immoral after many years and then it’s time to leave (there’s no turnaround when HR gravitates towards immoral business and chronically relies on deceit)

The Morality of Your Clients and Suppliers Should Matter (It No Longer Matters in Sirius ‘Open Source’)

2 December 2022 @ 5:34 pm

One very important (and perhaps lifelong) lesson learned in my last job is that clients and agenda can change rapidly as a result of rotation in management and a loss of moral compass; it's critical to check not only what employer one works for but who the upstream and downstream entities are (their nature can change for the worse when the employer becomes desperate and neglects ethics in pursuit of money)

[Meme] Sirius Open Wash Ltd.

2 December 2022 @ 4:30 pm

Limited openness or pure openwashing; the company formerly known as SIRIUS CORPORATION LIMITED (03633198) and now known as SIRIUS OPEN SOURCE LTD (11014042) is not what it says on the tin

Sirius Open Source is No Longer Open Source and It’s Simply Unethical to Stay There

2 December 2022 @ 4:08 pm

The company where I've worked since my twenties is going under; now it's trying to find excuses to deny compensation to staff while failing to pay very basic bills and liabilities; there are many other issues that deserve the light of day

It's mostly incorrect to describe Windows as something that cannot be avoided in technical occupations or something that's worth learning (or actively using)
