My Company Made a Mistake Today
My friend Andy was let go today. He’s a stand-up guy, and though I don’t claim to know the inner workings of the Marketing/Promotion department… Andy was the kind of guy who prided himself on a job well done. My company’s decision to let him go was an out and out mistake. We should be fighting to keep guys like Andy, not firing them.
To make things worse, the manner in which he was notified about it all was shitty. Suffice it to say that Andy received an email in the morning that basically let him know he was fired, before anyone actually came in to fire him. Sloppy. Rude. And totally unprofessional.
In my opinion, I found the grounds for Andy’s termination to be rather bogus. Letting someone as hard-working as Andy go? My company fucked up today.
