If I didn't work on the projects I was assigned (mostly Debian) for an appropriate number of hours per day, or if management felt that my work wasn't up to par, or that I was otherwise not being a benefit to $COMPANY , I could be fired at will with two (IIRC) weeks notice. -- see shy jo  Pretty easy to guess which one, and I don't particularly claim that this arragement and other similar ones were necessarily a good plan for them in the medium run. In the long run, if $COMPANY had survived, it would have benefitted from some of the projects I was able to do there, like debconf and d-i.
