Games "At the end of a week in which Electronic Arts confirmed it wasn't developing a thing for the Wii U, one of the software engineers in EA Sports' Canada studio, in a series of since-deleted tweets, disparaged the console as 'crap' and suggested Nintendo should give up on hardware altogether. 'The Wii U is crap. Less powerful than an Xbox 360. Poor online/store. Weird tablet', tweeted Bob Summerwill, listed as a senior software engineer at EA Canada, in a reply to a tweet posting a link about EA's no-Wii U news. 'Nintendo are walking dead at this point'." The Wii U is turning into the 21st century's Virtual Boy.

An employee gets PAID to do a job, not to voice opinions damaging his employer.

And the moment I leave the office for the day they are no longer paying me. What anyone does on their free time and what their opinions are is not the company's business. At all.
That's not saying it's smart to do what this guy did.

You are right, but if you start posting those opinions or hobbies on-line and people know what you do for a living things could change.

If for example you are an EA sports developer and start publicly dissing the Wii U in your spare time you'll either lose your job or you're going to have a serious talk with your boss.
