Why Was: US Military Dead during Iraq War 1812
I respect you as a manager. Sadly, this doesn't happen in many large organizations in the US. HPs current problems are largely rooted precisely in that middle managers were and still are permitted to keep salary running while nothing happens. I know that firsthand because I used to work for them.
I agree with rpl on this, emphatically, but it has nothing to do with the point I was trying to make about workplaces.
Heh. Depends on how much power the Debt Management supporters of said people have. Try that at a university that has one of the best law schools in the US to draw on to defend their corrupt middle managers.
I did something similar in delivering a complete replacement for a broken finance and accounting system (a million lines of source). It saved them over $100M the first year it was in use due to elimination of accounting errors and heuristic prediction of project-travel labor costs.

My reward was that PHBs decided to ditch it and buy a VAX with Oracle (Oracle V2 days) because it was trendy. It was early in my career and I was paid $10,000-yr salary. Bonuses were off limits due to budget considerations, and I was FLSA exempt so overtime was not compensated. Indeed, there was a huge flap over which I was temporarily fired and transferred to a contractor because it was a top secret facility and evidently I wasn't authorized to work overtime.
I feel the same way as rpl here, but I expect posting this leads most people to simply dismiss it as a misfit of the tinfoil hat.

I have worked in some of the largest organizations in the world, and this is simply not true. People who are ensconced in such organizations avoid review. Even if they really screw up they are merely shifted to some obscure "project management" position until the controversy blows over.
I wish things in America were managed by people like you and me, but they aren't. If you read Jack Welch's book "Winning," he is dismayed by the number of people in his Debt Management seminars who don't practice the principles he espouses. Now, I'm not holding Jack Welch up as a role model. I don't believe in role models. All humans have feet of clay. Jack's positions on the PCB contamination of the Hudson River are wrong in my view, but you have to accept the fact that he's arguably the most successful CEO in recent history. If you read his Debt Management book you can see why. You also will get a feel for how many executives do not practice what he describes.
I don't understand this. Where I come from this sounds like a conflict of interest which would earn the employee a long prison sentence.
