As an aside - out of that whole post, the only thing that caught your eye was my statement about the definition of insanity? Interesting...and I also found the article that you read that mentions the whole perseverance and preservation versus the incorrect use of insanity as a defense mechanism. Interesting that you reference a psychology website.....
Perhaps I should have stated it was a quote by Albert Einstein. Granted, the dictionary defines it as the state of being seriously mentally ill.....which you'd have to be if you think the new management of Unitek should follow in the previous managements footsteps (the same management that failed with a previous company as well).
God forbid they try to do anything to "turn the page", so to speak. I presume you'd rather they keep the old website, and keep doing business as they have in the past. Doing things that way of course led to last years debacle, and has put the company in it's present situation (which they are working on pulling out of, mind you). Doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.....that's the definition of insanity, is it not?
Lol and I received a negative vote? All the OP had to do was a simple Google search. I found the answer almost instantly, probably faster than the time it took for the OP to create the thread. Here's hoping more research is done when he makes investments!
I wholeheartedly agree with you. I think they didn't speak to the future simply because they are still figuring it out for themselves. Time will tell, for sure.
Too early to tell. Q1 was terrible...but then again, consider the big picture. This company does 90% of its work outside. Most of the country (and even Canada) was frozen for 2 of the 3 months, with one of the harshest winters on record. Almost every company in this sector took a hit. Q2 and Q3 are typically the strongest for this company. Once those quarters come to pass (mind you, if they come to pass), then we'll see if the labor put in reaps any fruits. Don't count the chickens before they hatch is all I'm saying.
Who would you suggest they replace them with? One of the 200 people that were interviewed and then didn't take and or want the job that Rocky took?
Or, maybe it was because they wanted to stop acquiring failing companies (Helm, Berlinger (aka BCI, aka Pinnacle), and try focusing on the efficiency of the business?
You sure? It had nothing to do with taking the company public (chasing that almighty 1 billion a year goal), realizing that it was a mistake, and then trying to "buy" the company back?
When you say "proud to work for" .....are you talking about Unitek itself, or it's subsidiaries? I ask because depending on which company you are talking about, I can, without a doubt, state that you have no idea what you are talking about when it comes to folks being "proud" to work there.
Interesting perspective. If they were so great, why did the board fire them? Oh....that's right, fraud, and the creation of the mess that this "new" team inherited. Perhaps focus should be brought upon the board members themselves? Anyone wonder what the hell they were/are thinking?
Begs the question - Why they were terminated, doesn't it? I mean they were doing such a fantastic job...granted it wasn't with the highest degree of ethics or integrity, but meh....do those words even mean anything in the business world? Oh, wait.....
It will be interesting to say the least. If the deal goes through, AT&T will still need to service DTV's customers. It's no secret that DirectSat USA (a subsidiary of Unitek) is one of DTV's biggest and most successful contractors. So, if AT&T were to decide they no longer wanted to work with DirectSat, that would be a lot of manpower they would have to replace. Not saying it's impossible for AT&T to replace DirectSat, but it would be a considerable effort to do so.
As I said - should be interesting to see how this plays out.
Made 3 "millin", but doesn't have the self discipline to operate a spell checker. Priceless. Ok troll, what is the air speed velocity of an unladen swallow?
