It should be the way that things should be in being able to work on personal projects outside of work, it builds more creative force and skills.
Its not common for sure but it is also not rare … I want to simply put a more positive note on this topic while still being realistic on the matter. Yes siturations like these have happened before and will happen again. Sometimes you can get a better job out of it!
I am talking from experience out of this (not myself but 2 guys i know) and we should be abit more encouraging for Ronan to go for it.
Btw Ronan, talk to Lionhead. Im not sure of what jobs they got going right now but they are always on the lookout but see what happens.
ps. I do agree on the flip side of the coin with omen & adore but every single person has different siturations that could appeal to both parties.
