At one point this CEO could not pay most or all of his entire staff. I was not paid once I gave notice of leaving to work for another company. When Tim Adams was losing me, he then felt ok not to pay me. He did the same exact thing to another contractor. I had worked as a top performer prior to that with no payment problems.
He sounds like a nice guy and has many many various 'sob stories' that several of us contractors have now shared with one another. It is hard to believe (no, impossible to believe) that one person can possibly have as many trauma stories as this guy. Don't fall for it! He's a wolf in sheep's clothing.
