Default What would you do with an employee like this?

Suppose you were the CEO of a company.

-You had an employee that was hot and heavy on doing a project because he/she believed it was the right thing to do.
-You decided to let the employee go ahead with the project because he/she seemed trustworthy to you.
-This employee said that completing this project would be quick and could be done easily.
-This employee stated that the actions taken from this project would pay for the project.
-This employee proposed this project at the beginning of last year.
-The employee spent most of their time on this project and little time on other necessary projects
-This employee was due for a contract extension at the end of this year.

-The project this employee proposed kept taking on new obstacles
-The project was never completed and became more difficult after a year's time.
-The project went way over budget and in fact was causing your company to lose as much money as they had made the year previous to the project.
-The project didn't pay for itself
-The project had no clear plan of completion
-The weekly updates you heard from the employee and his/her subordinates spoke well of their own progress, but within the project that progress wasn't apparent.
-The people involved in the project were not happy with the way the project was going and some were quitting and some were openly complaining about the project.
-The project was causing morale problems within your company
-The premise on which the employee sold the idea for doing the project proved to be untrue

Would you renew this employee's contract?

Anyone not see the setup?

Just a hint; if you like Bush, watch for the string tied to the stick holding the box up before you go for the bait.

Since companies are not governments anything is possible.
How long was the contract and who was the idiot that offered it?
Companies with CEO's have chairman. They make decisions such
as contracts and projects where funds are a grave factor.

But then there is always a slush fund for development. If the CEO
was that negligent I could see the CEO and everyone involved
being canned and asked to step down.

Whoever authorized such a project should also question their decisions.


Remember, the CEO of a corp isn't the only person making decisions.
Just like the Congress and Senators do for our President.

Gotcha.

I'd promote the little bastard. He is obviously presidential material.

If I were the manager, I would resign taking full blame for a project I authorized, if, of course, it all went down the way you said it did. However, I would assume there are a lot of shareholders in this company and I would presume that at the shareholders' meeting, everyone would not agree that the project was a failure. In that case, a stockholder vote would probably be in order.

3 Positive Things for which I'm voting for John Kerry

1) His stance on health care
2) While not as liberal on the issue as I'd like, he had the balls to oppose DOMA and is for benefits for same-sex couples/families.
3) His national service plan

Not my top 3, and certainly not an exhaustive list, but I humored the 'tard.

And I assure you, I'll be voting. More than once if possible

I would give the employee tenure and then fire the stupid fucking whistleblower for making up lies to try and get his retarded cousin hired in the original employees place.

/crack...

Bumbleroot's post is so messed up,
it'll take him a week to figure out the answers to his own questions.
And a year to figure out all the answers. Expect insults when he
wakes up. Should be an interesting read. Fun Fun Fun..


Wtg Bumble, run out of lighter fluid for the ole glass grill?

The world is going to come to and end since Kerry isn't any better. He is a hypocritical cocksucker. When asked about what he said about Vietnam to Congress back in the day, he gave the typical liberal run around and never answered the question. From what I can see, he will probably sell us out to other countries with his ass-kissing tactics. I wouldn't vote for this traitorous gigalo anyday. Even though I don't see eye to eye with Bush on everything, he still has my vote.

Traitor is a fairly serious allegation: any proof of treasonous activities or is that the brain-washing talking Azraelwrath?

All I needed to do is see who started the post and knew right off the bat it had to do with Bush bashing.
What Bumbleroot doesn't realize is you can only draw a similarity if you agree that the War in Iraq or the War on Terrorism is going nowhere. I see progress being made in Iraq so I don't compare his analogy to Bush's project.

Nice try Bumbleroot.

Most of you cons on here are full of shit. I asked you all a question. This employee obviously won't have their contract renewed. Yet, because you drew the correlation to Bush (by God, I'm surprised you guys had the intellgence to figure that one out) your stance changed.
I didn't ask you guys about Bush, so you might as well separate the two points. I asked if that employee should have their contract renewed. The fact that the correlation with Bush is obvious is his problem, not mine, not yours. Its not even a question of firing the employee because they have a contract that has to run out first. Its a matter of renewing that contract. I have heard you cons state to fire people based upon idiotic reasoning before but yet this is cut and clear reasoning. The fact that it is Bush and the fact that the case against him is drawn so obvious makes you cons change your view. Seems to me like you guys have zero backbone and no case here.

Ok Bumble here is one for you then.

After listening to everything you have heard about the employee you do some investigative work and discover that everything bad being said about him is a lie. He did not in fact misappropriate funds, he managed the project forced upon him to the best of his ability and did a great job doing thankless work, which despite the lies beingtold by his coworkers..most of the customers served by this employee were extremely happy and proud of his work.

You then realize that all the accusations were false and had been fabricated by others working in his department who were anxious to get the employee fired so they could get his office, prop their feet up and run the company right into the fucking ground...

What would you do with those employees Bumble?

I will be surprised if you will be intelligent enough to deliver any answer at all if you want to know the truth..

The fact that it is Bush and the fact that the case against him is drawn so obvious makes you cons change your view. Seems to me like you guys have zero backbone and no case here.
Obvious my ass....the only thing obvious is you have a psychopathic fixation with the liberal media, lies, and furthering your own agenda. That and you love to link Op-Ed as truth. If that's what you mean by obvious then..yes..it's obvious..you are nothing more than a fucking sheep who has bought into one of the biggest lies of the century..you are to just blind (or stupid) to realize it.

There's a difference Bumbleroot. If we said fire the employee, you would say "then why do you all defend Bush". Simple answer. We don't see his plan going down the same way as the employee you made the analogy with.

That little scenero is your opinion of how the Bush administration is handleing a project. I don't see it the same way as you do.

So to answer your question, I would get both sides of the story before I made a decision on what to do with that employee. Alot of people in the company may think he's doing a fine job and making progress with the project.

How's that for an answer?
