In a last ditch effort to give the appearance of running a Tight Profitable Ship she Tells Employees to Act Faster. What the Hell does that even mean.Also being that 95% of large corporations have downsized their work force by as much as 60% leaving remaining employees to do twice the work for the same pay. So Perhaps the CEO should Act Faster in her Quest to keep this Dinosaur Profitable. Naaahhh it`s far easier to pass the buck and blame it on the Employees.
This reminds me soooooo much of the infamous John Akers memo that came out, by accident, in late 1991, when he accused all of the IBMers of just standing around the water coolers. Management came down hard and all of the sales staff were then mandated to fill out endless forms in the office justifying why 100% of their working day was really DEVOTED TO FIELD WORK. Crazy. The sales staff were #$%$ and if you start to get these fellows mad ..... Ginny has made the same mistake as John did. One Thomas Watson would NEVER ever make.
Well although I appreciate the replies I recieved I will say this my post was NOT about me, I have never worked for a large corporation and have never worked for a company that downsized anything but their benefits.If you think what I typed was silly then you should pay closer attention to the Business News over the last five years. As far as IBM goes it`s been one of the all time Greats among American Large Cap Companies. That being said the only reason they are still around and doing well is because they have cornered the market in an obsolete area that most companies moved away from decades ago. Again I appreciate the reply.
