You are right on the money, except you missed on the letters, as you go upthe ladder, they require an MBA to recognize you. I watched as some of the most talented people in the industry got left behind or let go because they didn't have degrees. They had 20 or 30 years in the business, and great track records, but no degrees. Oh, buy the way, where are all th e Cleteo lovers now?
I see a lot of get rich quick type's posting messages on this board. Do they really believe that Cletao can double the business in five years? It took over 100 years to get where we are now. This is just crazy management. But he will retire in the next year or two with his millions and leave the mess for the rest of us to deal with. A take over? maybe. Why not a take over by the employees? After all they are the ones that really know how to make products that work. Why have a bunch of OVER PAID guru's tell us how to do our jobs? I think that hard word and time will bring growth to bdx. Remember patience is truely a virtue!
