Obviously we have some X-employees on this board
who believe that BCC is poorly managed, with
particular attention to the CEO. The stock price suggest
that they are right ... but I would like to hear
specific information to see if these comments are just
sour grapes from disgruntled ex-employees or if
management really is all that bad.
someone earlier wrote that the CEO showed off his newly
acquired motorcycle that he was housing in the BICC
warehouse. I can see where this would "piss off" the rank
and file who make a small percentage of what the CEO
makes. Who wants someone to flaunt their wealth. But
this is a small incident, ... so what, or is this
representative of how they treat their employees. What about
employee turnover? Can they keep key personel. What about
the other key management other than the CEO. Are they
competent? Who is and who is not? and give examples. I read
in earlier post that the international department
was run by two individuals who were actually married
to each other ... is this really true? Is there
nepotism throughout the organization?
What about the
loan convenents on the billion dollar loan? Are they
still intact? Or is the other shoe about to
What about the board of directors ... they are
responsible for the management ... are they hands on or are
they cronies of the CEO.
Any real insight into
these issues would be appreciated.

I am not so much 'down' on the
company....just a realist....take some time and read back on some
of these boards, and hear what the people have to
say. Although some of it may be personally and
emotionally motivated, most of it is just the facts. The
management struture is a mess, to say the least, you will
find that even 'outsiders' generally feel this

The Snoppington philosophy of management has
taken the country by storm. The idea, fellow
tricksters, is to increase the ratio of executive to worker
compensation from its current 450 to 1 to 999 to 1. In twenty
years, we have moved it from 40 to 1 to its current 450
to 1. In the next five years, we will move it to 999
to 1. Workers, my fellow, tricksters, are the fuel
to enrich management and a few key investors with
"inner sanctum" information.

it is obvious that even if the management does read
these boards, they are only a sounding board, but will
not necessarily effect change. The fact of the matter
is that this is about money, not people. You only
have to read the boards to see that.
