    all sorts of employee surveys that revealed, unsurprisingly, that most employees did not trust their supervisor or upper management. They did not believe in the company's vision. They did not believe the company had their interests at heart. Morale was awful. Forcing people in that state of mind to collaborate and come up with great ideas and lead the company out of bad times is like trying to nail a slab of Jello to the wall. Good luck with that.

    Those who do not understand history are condemned to repeat it... in summer school.

      On a team that had very loose telecommuting policies. I was expected to send a status e-mail every week and to attend one weekly project meeting a week. Other than that, we all self-managed.

      I worked at home whenever I wished.

      We were all very happy. The problem was knowing when to stop working. I was drawn to my laptop at all hours, probably mostly because my e-mail inbox was full of positive, engaging feedback from my coworkers.

      How awful to work someplace like Yahoo!
