Laid-off employees say goodbye

I've really enjoyed the Atari experience. I hope those staying can pull the company out of this deep hole.

A slew of goodbyes from layoffs in 1984.

This is Goodby...

   It has been good working with all of you.  I mean it sincerely when I 
say that I have always considered Coin-Op to be the elite of the game 
divisions.  Keep it up!
   I like Atari.  I have been here (but not in this "division") almost 3 years 
and have grown quite attached to the ol' fuji.  I wish you all the best and
sincerely hope that each of you, and Atari as a whole, succeeds.  You still 
have hard times ahead of you but I have faith that you will pull through.

Good luck,
Dave

	Garfield Is Dead!    Long Live Garfield!

Farewell

(4 / 10)


I'm sad to say that I will be leaving ATARI after 7 very enjoyable 
years. I doubt that I will ever again be able to work with as many 
exceptionally talented and fun people.

I wish each of you all the best wherever life takes you. To those 
of you who are staying with ATARI, I wish you the best of luck in 
turning this see-saw industry around.

I hope that I someday have the opportunity to work with you again.

It's been REAL!!

Sincerely,
John Ray

Goodbye to all those whose lifes intersected with mine.  I've enjoyed
working with you all these past few years.  Good luck to all those
who must now carry on the tradition of Atari, "the serious funtakers."
May we meet again in future incarnations, and may you never take any
wooden garfields.

	I just wanted to say good bye to all the great people I have
worked with these past 8 years.

	"good bye to all the great people I have worked with these
	past 8 years"

	I've really enjoyed the Atari experience. I hope those staying
can pull the company out of this deep hole. Who know, maybe the company
will grow big enough again that I can someday come back and disrupt
everything again. And if not, and if it gets smaller and smaller...
who knows, maybe one day I can come back and buy it!!!!!!!!

	Ill be about one more week, so get your abuse while you still
can!!!!!

	It feels like graduation from school again...so now I got to go
out into the real world and find a job!!!!!!

	Im in the Albaugh white pages, feel free to call anytime, either for 
a chat, or for the Rubin answering message of the month!

				-O-
