EU bank bonus caps

"The tragedy is that it costs Ahab or the board of a company relatively little to purchase the acquiescence of its workforce. What a workforce hands over in return is worth far more. Once they are distracted by chasing a bonus their fate is sealed. Employees will be burning the midnight oil right up until the chief executive's ludicrous global expansion plan, backed by the board, bankrupts the company. It doesn't matter how many compliance officers and risk control directors you employ, they can all be bought as well. They are only human after all."
A classic tale can tell us why we should all be rejoicing the the European Union's plans to impose caps on bonuses and curb top level pay

When the build fails, it should "fail loudly" with a "monitor that starts flashing red" and email to everyone on the team. When that happens, you should "respond immediately" to fix the problem. In his team, they have a full-size Justin Bieber cutout that gets placed facing the team member who broke the build. They found that "100% of software engineers don't like Justin Bieber", and will work quickly to fix the build problem.

Organizational Skills Beat Algorithmic Wizardry
Organizational Skills Beat Algorithmic Wizardry. I've seen a number of blog entries about technical interviews at high-end companies that make me glad I'm not looking for work as a programmer. The ability to implement oddball variants of heaps and trees on the spot.
