See, it's not just blogging that gets you fired...

Link - Eli Lilly & Co. said on Monday it fired an employee who wrote a book, Hard Sell: The Evolution of a Viagra Salesman, about his tenure as a Pfizer Inc. sales representative which boasted about how little he worked and how much money he earned.

Reidy said he worked for Lilly for four and a half years, first as a salesman but most recently training other representatives. The book is based on the five years he worked at Pfizer, which makes Viagra.

Lilly's stance: Company spokesman Philip Belt said Jamie Reidy was terminated because the book advocated actions that were in violation of Lilly's policies.
