Re: Ethics and Job-Hunting
Sorry, Bruce, but it never crossed my mind.
Well, that's one person, anyway. Thanks for that ;-)
I work at Avaya. Would someone who knows the telecom marketNo, but, as I suspect you know, the relation Linux and Microsoft is very different than that between Avaya and Nortel.
automatically assume that I am violently anti-Nortel?
In your case, people might assume that you are pleased at Nortel's difficulties in the past year. Or, if Avaya happens to be known for a paticular corporate culture (I know almost nothing about it. so this is just a random example), they might assume that you prefer to do things the Avaya way.
The fact that you are indifferent to these issues - which, incidentally, strikes me as a sensible position to take - doesn't mean that other people won't assume that you have strong opinions on them. It's a nuisance, but it's also a reality that can affect you no matter how much you ignore it.

"Humpty Dumpty was pushed: head over heels all over the wall,
Humpty Dumpty was pushed: nobody noticed at all,
And all the king's horses and all the king's men
Gathered round Humpty and kicked him again;
And they called for a priest and a couple of friends,
And they all stood around and chanted, Amen."
-Tommy Sands, "Humpty Dumpty Was Pushed
