  1. Unfortunately this is true of many companies. Upper management prospers while those on the lower rungs of the ladder struggle with increased workloads due to layoffs, and no increase in salary.

    • You’re right, Candice. I mean, there are many good companies out there, and I understand that businesses are not charities, but there are also a lot of companies that don’t understand you can’t demoralize your employees and expect them to be productive. Good management will, instead, unleash the creativity and productivity of their employees and treat them as being just as important to the success of the companies as the managers are.

  2. You hit the nail on the head. Cost-cutting. Reducing manpower on projects. Misplacing charge numbers until the work is done and people are ready to screem….Austerity, Then through a little party and tell everybody the company is doing very well, but raises are frozen…. hahahaha

    • Thanks, Notdonner! I have worked at so many companies in the past that preached constant austerity even while the executives were spending like drunken sailors on things that did not contribute one penny to our bottom line. They would do away with the free coffee for the employees one day, and the next day all of the senior management would fly to Hawaii for an executive summit. And yet they could never understand why employee morale was so low.

      They would also speak out of both sides of their mouths, as you mentioned in your comment. The annual report would paint such a rosy picture of revenues and prospects … but their speeches at the employee all-hands meetings were doom and gloom and we couldn’t afford to pay the light bill. Such hypocrisy!

      Not surprisingly, all of those companies went out of business.
