Hey, I liked you as a boss - even though it was just for a summer job. I remember you taught me a valuable lesson. I had a project that I was working on at the Tech Center, but before I completed it, you transferred me to the Detroit team. I thought that my responsibility for the project was over - on to the next task! But, you made me stay late to finish it up before going downtown. I was not happy about it at the time - but it taught me a valuable lesson to finish what I started. Yes it was a basic lesson - but one I needed since I had never had a "real" job prior to this one.



I made a similar decision to break out on my own about the same time you did. While I seldom look back on that decision, when I do, it's never with regret. Sure, there's less money. But there's more variety, challenge, and demand for the things I really do well. I know now that I wouldn't have made the jump to self-employment if I had known there would be less money, but I found I don't need as much money, and I know that every success and failure is entirely my own. As a result, I've grown in ways I never imagined.

PS I also worked for you at one time and thought you were a great leader and a joy to work with!


I certainly can connect with everything you have stated. Although I have stayed with the company and am well compensated, I have to admit their is not much joy or satisfaction that comes from working in the EDS environment these days. I am in a position to make an impact and help turn the company around, but the task in front of us is enormous.

I also worked for you for several years, and viewed you as a role model. We had fun at work, worked hard and were rewarded equivalently.....boy, do I miss those days. I appreciate everything you taught me. Best of luck in your future endeavors.
