Lesson Learned from Ongoing Goldman Sachs Trade Secrets Criminal Trial: Shut Your Trap

By Todd

This is a pretty interesting piece penned by Forbes' Emily Lambert. She has derived three rules from following the Sergey Aleynikov criminal trial: (1) When you leave a job, leave it behind; (2) If you ignore the above, shut your trap; and (3) Improve your online image.

We've been thinking about a few others, including perhaps: (1) If you're being offered 3 times what you're currently earning, you're either a bad negotiator presently or you're going to be asked to use something other than your basic skills in the future; (2) If you're going to claim that you've only taken open-source code, obtain that code from the open-source and not your former employer; and (3) Drive, don't fly, if you've got a computer full of documents and data that doesn't belong to you.
