Except VALVe doesn't work like that. From the leaked new employee handbook a while back, it makes it pretty clear that at VALVe, you work on the project you WANT to work on. It may make slower releases, but it guarantees that every project has has been worked on and created with care and passion.
Every desk in the VALVe offices has wheels to go roam if you want to work on something else.
