Dear Sophie, I didn't want to make things awkward before I left, so I saved this letter until now. Firstly, I wish to start by saying thank you for your employment and your generosity throughout my time at your company. The lunches and early finishes were greatly appreciated and your understanding about my travel situation was well received. However, I cannot let myself be walked all over and say nothing, hence this letter. Whilst you always tried to treat us and be generous, unfortunately you have got it completely wrong. The way you treat your staff and the environment I had to suffer through was disgusting and no amount of lunches and early finishes could ever have made up for it. I am going to outline the main reasons I left your employment. I'm not sure where you got '...

EIT Digital, Infor, wipro, R/GA, Ericsson, Bombardier, Zendesk, Fleetcor, HERE, Saleforce, CA Technologies, Sotalex, SDL, Arcadis, IP Soft, Zeta, Viacom, McKinsey&Company, Stepstone, BCG Digital Ventures …and the dozens of other companies; start-up, SME and corporate who follow such practices. Several months in on the job hunting, one thing I can say for sure, YOUR HR PROCESS IS A DISGRACE. Here’s my experience… From all the evidence emails could be more truthful, perhaps something along the lines: “Thank you for your application. Our dim-witted, somewhat inexperienced HR personnel will *possibly, maybe* review your profile beyond a keyword match and when we don’t recognize a market leading company that we’ve heard of — you won’t be hearing from us.” I’ve officially succumbed...

Prof. Stadler, As a woman, I now know that when I walked into the Audi store in Arlington I was viewed as less than the man that walked in right after me. I now know that it must have been a huge surprise to your salespeople that I purchased this car (Audi Q7 Prestige with EVERY option) without my husband or father with me. I see how Audi views women in the world. You made it very clear with your ridiculous Super Bowl ad showing how women, in your eyes, are less compared to men. Not only was it completely sexist, you tried to make it justifiable by ending the ad with some sort of “hope” that “…maybe I will tell her something different.” Oh, how magnanimous of you! Maybe, that is the view in your company. It doesn’t surprise me that your entire board is made up of only men. Maybe...

Dear Infosys Board, I am really confused on your company's stand when it comes to making people accountable. For the past few years Infosys has had a stand of perform or perish. They have fired senior leaders of Infosys just because they did not meet their revenue targets. Whatever the "not in their control" factors were it did not matter. It was a straight policy, either get done what you were accountable for or be asked the leave. In the past couple of years there have been 2 major incidents in the Pune campus. The first of a woman being raped on campus, in 2015, the second the murder of a person in 2017. The former unfortunately made lesser news, probably because the victim was from the poorer section of the society. Nevertheless it was an unforgivable incident to happen. Despite...

Dear Mom, I want my money that you took from me. I gave you fifteen dollars about a week ago and you haven’t paid me back yet. When am I gonna get my money. I wanted to spend my money on something I wanted. But I had to give you most of my money and had only $4 to my name 4 freaking dollars. Today makes it 8 days since I gave you that money, I just want my money back. I love you fam but I need money just like you need money. I could of brought so much candy and two bags of takis at the store with that money. I’m tired of waiting for you to give me my money. If I would’ve known that it would have took a week in a day to get the money back. I went to help my Aunt move in to her house not you, I had to pick heavy things up not you. It took me over four hours to help her get her...

Ottawa, ON K1A 0A2 Re: I am a Canadian citizen who has suffered injustice in Dubai, United Arab Emirates After living for most of our lives in financial security in Canada, me and my wife decided to move to the United Arab Emirates so be closer to people (we converted to Islam during our years in college in Montreal) who we perceived to be of the same mind-set as ours under the umbrella of Islam of which we were and still are believers. Our dream to do so became a reality in 2008 we did so by creating the Company NSD Technology Solution 2008 with an Emirati...

I worked myself to death every day I was scheduled to work for my old boss. I came in when people pulled “no call, no shows”, I came in when people didn’t show up even on days I had requested for very personal reasons, I came in when I happened to be passing the store and realized no one had opened that day, just to name a few incidents over the three years I was employed there. My boss hired people who never lasted more than a month or two, people who stole both merchandise and cash from the register, people who humiliated and cajoled fellow employees, people with no work ethic. I picked up the slack when work didn’t get done. I was eventually lucky enough that she hired three other employees that actually knew what a job entailed(work, wow, can you believe it?). Those three women...

To Our New CEO, As I am on my lunch break and can hear the voices of several influential and important members of the Corporate administration on a company-wide conference call in just the other room, I decided to start reading the press releases from the last few months. I saw that, while the fourth quarter of 2015 was less than anticipated, the net worth of the company increased and the value of our stock rose over the course of the year. We are projected to open up to 12 new stores in 2016, and are feeling a push to modify our merchandising techniques. All of this is well and good, and hopefully you will bring fresh ideas to the company. That being said, I only have one concern: why, despite our steady growth, have we not seen a raise in wages? There is not a single place in the...

To: Mark Zuckerberg From: Bill Hippard, Executive Director, Metal Roofing Alliance Date: March 27, 2016 Re: Metal Roofs Aren’t Just for Panic Houses Dear Mr. Zuckerberg, Your Palo Alto home plans have created headlines this week. Kudos to you for wanting to protect your family - that’s an instinct we all share. Based on the plans we’ve seen referenced, at least one of the new homes will be built to last. And not just because of the reported brick walls and steel doors. It’s the standing seam metal roof that will provide decades of protection for your so-called “panic house.” Resistant to cracking, shrinking and eroding, attractive metal roofs can work with any type of architecture, and withstand extreme weather conditions throughout their long, long life. Clearly,...

May 13, 2016 By email [email protected] Dear Mr. McAdam: We are a Verizon/CWA family. My husband has worked for Verizon for 20 years with no bad marks and has always made the productivity numbers. We have been proud to be part of a successful company and to be able to live the American dream. However, our version of the American dream is most likely a little different than yours. We just want to be a family and make ends meet. We have a son who has sensory issues, dyslexia and High Functioning Autism. We live on one income and thankfully, we have been able to stay on one income, because of mandatory overtime. However, you have forced overtime every week for a year and are now forcing untrained managers to do the same. Although overtime is great pay,...
