Time to move on Ron. 3+ years of embarrassing performance + no clue how to fix it = time to step aside and let someone more qualified do the job. At this point you've taken much more than you've ever contributed. Show some character... call the game before the board (of your hand picked cronies) has to.
I agree revenue is flat and it looks like all the expense cutting is done so where does he go from here. All he can do is start giving away margin to boost volume and that is definitely a road leading to disaster. A rudderless ship and the Captain doesn't have a clue.
could not agree more that it is time for Ron to go. How long will it take for this board to realize that shoving an outdated US strategy on the rest of the world in a micro managed style does not work? you have an extremely poor management team trying to execute an outdated strategy and the results are predictable. Look how many Americans are working in international these days? A huge chunk of the leadership is trying to shove "the staples way" down these countries' throats and they have no clue that the people internationally do not buy in at all.
