Are you a Lion? :P

Sometimes I get really interesting emails from my wela colleagues. Here is one I got last week, apparently this gentleman has nothing better to do :D. I wonder how do software houses in karachi and islamabad determine this same thing? Enjoy ;)

Here is how software houses in Lahore determine if you are a lion, a cat or a goat?
Techlogix Method:
Call a Lion for interview and tell him you are a CAT…. then call for another interview… then another and another, the Lion dies before Joining in confusion of being a CAT

NetSol Method:
Hire a Lion… Make him wear a Big Ugly ID Card, put him PowerBuilder,
Give him NO Internet and no increment for a long time.
The Lion will die in Isolation and Poverty…..

Then hire more lions….. and repeat the process

Systems Method:
Hire a Cat …
Tell him to work late and even on weekends…assure him that he will eventually become a Lion once he reaches onsite…..and make sure that he never reaches onsite.

Cat dies in hope of becoming a Lion….

CureMD Method:
Hire a cat……give him salary of cat and work load of lion…
Tell him that he will get an increment and a promotion at the quarter end..
When the quarter ends and cat becomes a lion…give him “big loss” notice

The cat dies of frustration…

PalmChip Method:
Hire a lion??? No Cat, tell him he is a lion, give him some weird protocol to work on, tell him if he remains alive while doing it, he will get a promotion.

The Lion Dies in Fear.

Mentor Graphics Method
Hire a lion and ask him to meow like a cat…
he will die eventually of frustration…

Mobilink Method:
Hire a Cat; give him a salary of a Lion…
Give him work of 3 Lions…..transfer him to customer care.
he will die receiving stupid calls all day……..!!!!

LoanStar Method:
Hire a lion, give him a salary of a cat…
the lion dies of hunger and frustration

Innovative Method:
hire ..sorry….purchase a lion …
change his timings…(instead of 9 AM …change it to 7:30 AM )
cut down his allowance…….. make him do a lot of documentation
lion dies from fear of becoming CAT…..

Xavor Method:
Hire a Goat, Make him realize he is a Lion, Give him lot of work, give him short deadlines.

Goat Dies of Strain

    Nah, I don’t like the story. Doesn’t it happen that cat eventually becomes a roaring lion and takes over the management? I’m specifically talking about CureMD cats.
    Nevertheless, a good insight. (Not about Lahore’s IT firms, but cats and lions. Oh, goats too! :D )

    side-splitting funny and it just doesnt apply to softwaree houses, it applies to almost all corporate organizations – in parts and streaks. What one becomes towards the end is the donkey who is chasing the pay check danggled infront of one like a carrot.

    How does this have anything to do with Lahore? I thought the whole point of Metroblogging was to blog about the city.

    Abbas, it is about Lahore as far as I know. It doesn’t have to have word Lahore in every post, does it?

    LOL. this is so funny. Tanzila’s right. A bit of each kind of corporation profiled. Something for almost anyone to relate to here.
    Long live philosophical corporate welas!

    Only people who could understand and laugh are those who have actually worked in those s/w houses. Atleast it was true for Netsols :-)

    Might as well start considering this an “email forwards blog archive” then.
