Talk Rages in Lost Wages
Spence chats with many former CA employees, and only one defends ex-boss Charles Wang.What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegasunless I decide to blab about it," cackled the Kitty. The Lucky Lynx was lurking about in Lost Wages to check out CA World and possibly win back some of the coinage hed lost in the city over the years. While CA CEO John Swainson was busy proclaiming he wanted to "talk less about the past and more about the future," El Gato was hoping to hear some tales of fear and loathing at the show. Spence chatted with many former CA employees, and only one defended ex-boss Charles Wang, claiming the company co-founder never created a "culture of fear" in Islandia, as the report from CAs special litigation committee stated. Another former associate said Wang would reorganize the company twice a year and humiliate some people by demoting themand then a year later, they might possibly find redemption and receive a nice fat promotion. Another claimed folks trembled constantly in fear of losing their jobs under Wang. Whether Wang will be pursued for the $500 million that CAs special committee asserts should be wrangled from him will depend on whether the courts accept the report, Swainson told the crowd, when he did gingerly touch on the subject.
The Furball was tickled when a couple of CA folks told him about some product families the company is putting together under the label of Capability Solutions. "Did you guys use a word generator to come up with such a riveting name?" tittered the Tabby.
