Hey Richard, take a look at your misfits-- Norm
ought to retire, Lazaredes should have never been
hired, McGrath should be fired and Coyne's time has
expired, and your leadership(HA!)is the least admired. Get
a grip on your business-you chased away anyone that
knew anything about customers and the business. You've
left us here with a group that say "whatever you want
Boss"- the Tenneco way! Operational excellence,
Richard's way prevails.
History is so nice isn't it? Jim has went on to better things as we all should do now. From here on it's onward and upward. We employees bought stock at 1/2 you realize so wait it out and make hay!
the top management in paper are trying to cut a
deal which will leave them in a top position in
whatever happens. If so, best take a quick profit if one
comes along. Remember, the same bunch who got it in the
shape it is in now, may still be hanging
Heck, what do I know? Just MHO.
I know there are several open rec's for
engineers, but the HR and recruiters have done less than a
decient job at finding anyone ( Won't pay the price for
quality) There are several Big 3 accounts on the brink and
no manpower to address the issues. Can't fix the
problems fast enough to salvage the business, which
reverts back to the same old song, we can't afford to
engineer it right, but we can afford to fix it time and
time again. In several departments we are so under
staffed all we can do is fight fires. There is also a new
suspension 2000 inititive which is strapping the already
understaffed departments. They need the people to save the OE
problem customers to make TA look better on paper, they
have to fatten the cow before it can go to market and
bring top price.
