Companies say backdating used in days after 9 11
I was working as a Controller for a high tech start up in 2001. I was laid off on a second round of lay offs during a very bad time in the economy.

Within a few days of the interview, I was not only offered the position, but the CFO let me work from my home office since I would be traveling around the world.
When my unemployment was about to run out (literally my last check), I got a call from a headhunter in Dallas asking me if I wanted to be the Director of Internal Audit for a public company in Dallas (I was living in New Hampshire).A third party law firm came in and did their own investigation and found what I found and more.The management team was in no way happy with my findings or my recommendation and made it extremely uncomfortable for me to stay.Robert explains the Dark Night of the Ego as the period "In Between or Liminality."
