What wont get me fired AI or software advises
employees on their behavioral and content latitude; this
could be combined with a Work well, an employee tutor
An ethically concerned person that wants to benefit
might explore: Can you outsource the entire company,
your job, to bring voluntary employment to people
poorer than you?
Or, the software notes your manager is an Myers Briggs
ESTJ, thus they are less likely to be
you as long as you make production targets, while an
ESFJ manager might cause employment destabilization if
you do not
The software could listen to all your co-workers
and video their body language to fit them to something
the MBTI personality test, but a new one with better
The employee using the software gets to use their
software-advised wiggle-room to improve their quality of
life. Software says: Ask ESTJ about telecommuting;
you meet goals satisfaction is high and sustainable
The tale of Bob the modern day Bartleby
"Bob's story shows that the line for an employee is drawn precisely where you begin exploiting the company rather than the company exploiting you." [zen_tom, Jan 24 2019]
If I knew what exactly they're doing, I'd write that here. But I really don't; the specific examples seem rather ... underwhelming, and of three roles they're hiring for one is an adjective. [jutta, Jan 25 2019]

||I'm at the age now where I no longer give a flying fig what
others think, and just follow my own natural jig. If I get
fired, so be it. If I get to stay, well that's ok too. Jobs can
be found, being homeless twice in my life didn't kill me,
(and no, it didn't make me stronger either), life goes on.
||What I'm trying to say is this; Listen to your inner critic, the
one that knows when you are being authentic and your true
self. Don't listen to anyone else. And do your very best
everyday day, don't cheat, steal or lie, and all will be fine
until you die. End of story. beanie.
||P.S. All employees should be mandated to have their
Enneagram done, and then share with boss so that they can
figure out the best way to work with each others style.
||[Ian] It might cause management software to be
developed as a response. "Ian is meeting all his goals but
never goes to meetings, that means our organization is
less fit because other people do not get live opportunities
to mentor from Awesome Ian". Oh talented software,
incentivize Ian to go to meetings!
||One can prefer that the management's software improves
quality of life while improving productivity. Preferring is
nifty, but this is a technology site so I have to think of a
beneficial management response software...
||//the MBTI personality test, but a new one with better science-of-psychology validation// - I think instead of "better", "some" would be a more appropriate word.
||// of three roles they're hiring for one is an adjective //
||And nobody at the company seems to be in any of those
tw o-pl us-what ever-yo u-wa nt-t o-d o roles. Instead, they
have one CEO, 8 "People Science", 14 "Product", two
"Product & Privacy", and 16 "Love" employees. Yes, this
company has more employees with the job title "Love" than
with any other single title!
||//The software could listen to all your co-workers utterances
and video their body language// I'm pretty sure that will get
you fired, [beany].

||Hi [blissmiss] - " That which does not kill you has made a tactical error ". From " The Seventy Maxims of Maximally Effective Mercenaries " - please see link.
