By taking the paycheck and never adding anything of value, Zeph was stealing from shareholders. And now he comments on the company???
How does he look at himself in the mirror when he gladly accepted a paycheck from ENER and never delivered anything of value, then bash the company after being fired?
Zeph, you make the shareholders sick.
jimmygoduh: If I am to believe ECD's filings with the SEC, ECD's biggest quarterly loss on record actually occurred in the March 2010 quarter. And things are different now from those good times in the past - ECD has $293 million in debt and not enough assets to repay it, and the magic of the Charlatan Extraordinaire is long gone.
The Manning thing was nothing compared to what the bond holders can do:
Yeah, those were good times. Remember those 40 years of losing the shareholder's money every single quarter? Remember how the company never made money when you collected a check for doing nothing of value? Those were good times, huh Zeph?
way to go man - I am happy for you - I too found a job very shortly after leaving, it was liberating actually, to be free of that place. For the first few years things were great there, a sense of enthusiasm, morale was high, people were happy at work, but that changed into a very different place now...oh well, I met some great ppl when I was there that I still keep in contact with, and I have the utmost respect for. I have a lot of respect for some of the upper management who have been there for 20 + years as well as most of the ECD guys that had been there for a while too. It is sad that they have seen the company hijacked and then aborted by Morelli and American Axle goons after all their years of hard work. They know exactly whats going on, but it is hard to get up and change when you have been somewhere for that long, and have a family to feed. Oh well, I wish you the best buddy - contact me on linkedin.com -- or I will look for you
The 15 shares of stock was pretty hilarious. What was even funnier is the litany of stipulations you had to meet in order to keep it. Nearly everyone I talked to said they should have just kept the stock.
Does anyone question why USO received so little stimulus cash? Why would such a pioneer in solar get so little help from the government? It was laughable.
I am also a former employee of USO. I won't disclose what I did. They make you sign a severance agreement that states that I will never talk bad about the company. It's funny that they resort to draconian measures to hide their company's practices.
I indeed brought much value to this company and I was recently terminated because I disagreed with some of the waste occurring.
I would hate to be an investor in this company. Good luck folks.
Joe, sorry to hear of your situation. Most, if not all, severance agreements contain clauses like the one you mentioned so I would not characterize it as draconian. If you would care to discuss, what was the company's stated reason for your termination, which I'm sure is different than your stated reason - "because I disagreed with some of the waste occurring."
Joe - the severance agreement was a good one eh? You can't disparage the company or its employees. But you can certainly disclose what you did as long as it not confidential, I mean on your resume you have to write your accomplishments at your former employer right? But yes, be careful what you post here, as the ECD lawyers have nothing better to do than creep on yahoo msg boards all day
