would have been clever had he:
A) got them to dial into a PC in his home then connect to the work vpn via his local pc.
B) keep the token and have them call him when they need to get in.

Company fired the guy, I expect they have now outsourced his job given it worked so well the first time.

he outsourced more than one job

Further investigation found that the enterprising Bob had actually taken jobs with other firms and had outsourced that work too, netting him hundreds of thousands of dollars in profit as well as lots of time to hang around on internet messaging boards and checking for a new Detective Mittens video.
