I was a Rick once, though not by choice. The company underpaid, management received bonuses based on cutting staff, and the company wasn't a tech company. They refused to give raises or title only promotions. I tried to set up knowledge transfers, tried to spread workloads, instituted training, but it was never enough and all the work ended back with me. I eventually left and now make significantly more for less work. I've never let myself become a Rick again.
