Risky business

Got fired from a EMC/Avamar in 2016, just days shy of five years there. How I got there:

Yeh. Nailed two risky hail-mary projects.

Then I got fired.

The problem was I had twice demonstrated delivering on-time with very risky projects. This was not what management wanted. They had no risk in their other projects, so their chance of failure was near to none. The last thing they needed was a new/risky highly visible project that exposed them to chance of failure.

There was more nonsense, but that was the gist.

Big companies are weird. :)
