Events at CSC are playing out rather like that classic WWII film, The Great Escape, where in the midst of the slaughter of war, for that read massive continuing lay offs at CSC, a bunch of officers are digging their way out under the wire hoping to get free to spend their bonuses. Some managers have managed to get away from Stalag Luft CSC while others have perhaps been 'caught' trying, or is it disagreeing with the boss, and seem to have disappeared. This month alone three new senior business managers have been hired to run various business units, while there is no news of their predecessors. Add to these the loss of senior HR and 'Cloud' favourites and the head of UK and Ireland - all put in place only recently and a disturbing pattern emerges. Have they been 'executed' and buried or what? More critically were they mistaken hires and promotions. The employees, the share holders, and customers need to know.
Information on latest lay offs can be found here at Siege of Stalingrad
Information - such as it is - about new hires can be found here at Now You See Him and here at Now You Don't and here at We were only following orders
But seriously, what we have here are three new high-level business managers put in place by Lawrie replacing business managers previously put in place by Lawrie. The replacement of UK lead not included. On top of that there are functional bosses in places like Cloud and HR put there by Lawrie who have also gone and I would guess others we have missed. All these people almost certainly had retainment bonus clauses in the their packages but they have gone anyway. On top of that you can bet they were paid more than their predecessors.
