End of the Day: 9/23/2008

Well lots of comments and good wishes from supporters.  Here is a summary:

– it appears that the FSA accounts are functioning as expected and most people are not having issues with their WageWorks credit cards.  If you are having problems with you card, please check your balance online, and/or call WageWorks.

– still no word on any shareholder meeting, vote, decision, etc.  But what else is new?  Your best bet is to follow the news over at the News Articles section.  And if you find an article of interest that your over-burdened cruise director may have overlooked, please email him!

– some articles are mentioning that the VLG group is shopping itself around which is not a surprise.  But 100 attorneys?  Is it me or is that number a little inflated?  Perhaps it was 100 VLG attorneys when they all first joined on at S.S. Heller but certainly not now.

– lots of job listings coming in – even some for non-law firm positions (thanks EA!)  Check it.

Stay healthy, stay focused, stay connected.  Make sure you are in at LinkedIn.  Check the tire pressure on your car’s tires.  Take your vitamins.  Plan for the upcoming cold weather.  And talk – talk with your co-workers, call up someone you used to work with at Heller – just talk.

- Don't be a dill weed.

- Treat other people the way you want to be treated.

- Ladies and children first.

- This is a rescue, not a bitch session.

- Help don't harm.

- Save the snarks for the attorneys and Above The Law.

Heller Highwater is not:

- a place to practice viscious and vindictive "whisper down the lane" rumour-mongering;

- a place to bad mouth co-workers;

- a place for diatribes against specific people or specific incidents;

- a place to heap pity on poor Heller Ehrman staff by outsiders;

- a place that discriminates or sets margins noting who is outside and who is inside - we even welcome supportive Heller Ehrman attorneys!;

- meant to further the demise of Heller Ehrman, LLP.

Heller Highwater is:

- a place for support, a place of empowerment, a place of passion;

- a place to learn about job leads, resume preparation, skill building, training, new opportunities, and how to succeed in a new workplace;

- a place to keep up on the latest news as to how Heller Ehrman management intends to treat its support staff as it winds down its operations - will it be every woman for herself? or will it be "let me hold the door for you and is there anything else I can do for you"?

- a place of refuge.
