Look like disgruntled housewives, don’t they? Or something the cat dragged in. Can you identify more than two of them? All six have blighted the lives of millions and a couple of them have raked off millions at taxpayer expense to support their lifestyles. One has special wimmin only meetings in secret rooms.
The big questions are – who are they, how did they get there, why are they still there and who TF is hiding behind them, getting them to do the dirty work?
A further question – what do these above have in common with this below?
Are HP off their effing brains, third time around? Twice, consecutively, a parachutee like this has nearly destroyed HP, a proper CEO brought it back from the brink and what does the effing board go and do? Only goes and puts in another affirmative action clone!!!!! I mean, are they getting a billion dollar sweetheart deal from somewhere for taking her on?
Hope they go down the gurgler good and proper this time. I’ve said it a hundred times – as managers, women make great administrators. And this particular type of “woman” is one you never, ever, want in charge of a major company, particularly if your further career depends on her. And as for letting this type near a public utility – I can only think it’s down to an evil sense of humour.
Read this if you will.
WTF were they thinking, the HP board? Less apoplectically, the Register puts it this way:
The news that Meg Whitman has taken over the top job at HP has left some in the industry scratching their heads. Sure, she was a reasonably safe pair of hands at eBay (besides splashing out billions on Skype for reasons best known to herself), but as a replacement for Leo Apotheker, she’s unlikely to be a success.
Understatement of the year. Safe pair of hands = administrator. Let me say it one last time: “As managers, women make great administrators.”
Just look at her, for goodness sake. Just read her CV. Sheesh!
