I shouldn’t take too much glee from this, but I can’t help but be very pleased by the news I got earlier from a friend and former colleague of mine. Without going into too much detail, I learned that some rather important people at my old employer have left, rather abruptly.
When this happens, it’s usually a sign that they’ve not left willingly. Given the downward spiral they put the place on, I can’t say I’m surprised. I wouldn’t wish ill upon anyone, but if you cut budgets for staff and reduce the number of managers, whilst expecting the same results, you are asking for trouble. Short term gains were placed above long-term stability, and that is a recipe for disaster.
