Job ads to avoid

I came across an ad for programmers the other day, and one of the requirements was that you be able to:

Get along well with other sometimes mal-adjusted geeks

The way I read this is “some of the other people are anti-social assholes, and we, as a company, are OK with that,” probably because they are able to turn out code and they’d rather not deal with the long-term effects of such people on a team.

Having worked for such a company before, I suggest that life is too short to work at them, regardless of how cool the job may be otherwise.
