Rah, Rah Go Z Go!

We had our all-employee meeting today. For a corporate rah-rah session, it wasn't too bad. Our CEO (who has the coolest Swiss accent) stood up and told us in detail what Katrina/Rita/Wilma has done to the bottom line, and then he and the other execs took Q&A.
When the first question was "our computer application support was outsourced and is now terrible, what are we going to do about it?" and the whole room bursts into applause - you knew you weren't listening to a bunch of butt kissers...
I have to give props to the Information chief - he stood up and said that it wasn't terrible, it was a "terrible and horrible" experience and that we had learned our lesson.

Wow! Good for you guys.

Most of us gave up pointing out the obvious around here because it never makes a difference and it gets you in their bad books.

You must work with a great mgmt team. Simon's experience is unfortunately the same as mine when I was a corporate worker, with exceptions of course.

Whoa. Cool.

Where I work, I am the IT department, so I hope they never outsource it. :)
