Job news, part 3

Citigroup's Sandy Weill is rich enough. Now he wants to leave his job to start a private equity fund with a Saudi prince. (I can't tell you how many times I've come close to doing that exact same thing.) There's just one hitch: Citigroup won't continue to pay his bonus or let him use the company jet after he leaves. So Weill may not be meeting his prince so soon.

Most employees get mad and quit. Only the very privileged can get mad and threaten to stay.

Just the other day I had to put a Saudi prince on hold because my daughter needed a pack of glue sticks opened. Juggling is so difficult.
