Cuban gets a job at Mellon Bank in a department that converts paper to computerized systems. While there, Cuban starts a group called “the Rookie club”. He invites executives to speak with the younger employees in a happy hour atmosphere and starts a newsletter for updates on current projects. He thought his boss would like his new ideas.
Instead, my boss called me into his office one day and ripped me a new one. “Who the f— do you think you are?” he yelled. I told him I was trying to help Mellon make more money. He told me I was never to go over him or around him, or he’d crush me.
