Now that’s a severance package!

Departing Senior VP and General Counsel Timothy Stevens of Borland Software has worked a deal whereby he gets to keep the “Company-issued laptop computer, monitor, printer and docking station used by Executive prior to the Separation Date together with the related loaded software, accessories and power cords.”

If I left my firm I wouldn’t want to keep the laptop! My personal laptop is so much better, faster and newer! Of course I’m just a junior so I get the old equipment. Partners and senior managers have nice stuff.

Good thing that dude remembered the power cords though… Can you imagine him getting home with his kit and then just realizing he had to go out and buy a power cord with his paltry $130,000 severance payment?
