"I'll say this for him, he's consistent." Admiral James T. Kirk on Khan
Ginny the Terminator at IBM, Ursula Burns at Xerox come to mind. But do not exclude men - old Bob Nardelli damn near destroyed Home Depot.
Always only DEADWOOD is cut - I have heard that pathetic excuse for years and god knows how the replacements from Bangalore will fare. Oh yes, they are cheap and provide .... lousy customer service, clients will get angry and leave for elsewhere. Shill.
Just read this and GE wants a piece of the Internet of Things and old Big Blue is a bargain right now. Certainly it would put GE in the driver's seat for the Internet of Systems. An interesting idea - discussion and no I am not crazy.
Employees are being given an option - hourly tech with Adecco with no benefits or DON'T THE DOOR HIT YOU ON THE WAY OUT - no severance at all.
Read the articles about trimming staff to contractors without severance pay - become a paid employee of Adecco without benefits or be shown the door. Caring company. Like IBM, dying.
Exactly the same situation as at Xerox, where Ursula Burns is running that firm into the ground too. She has one advantage really, she is politically well connected to D.C.
One, we finally have real SPAM on this board, seems to be ignored forever. Guess that is something. And does ANYBODY ELSE beyond about 3 people even bother with Aon or are they ALL SCARED to post anything otherwise the big bad Case comes down on their paycheck.
Ursula is already part of the Obama team, she has connections all over the place so if she leaves, all those little benefits go away. She is not leaving. Xerox is dying a slow death. Easy Peasy to quote Valerie Jarrett.
