    For me they took a group of us into a too small conference room without enough chairs for the group and the VP came in and asked everyone standing to sit on the floor If we could in San Jose, CA. I was standing and now sitting on the floor. I was later admonished by my manager for slouching on the floor. He had a chair. That was my first week with these guys. About six months later they flew me and others back to San Jose to watch the president and the same VP ride into the parking lot on the back of an elephant while we all stood around and clapped. We were loosing 3 million a quarter.

    Sounds like something Howard and Buchwald would do.

    If possible, bail, soon. Strange management gimmicks and stunts sound more like a cult, than a business that will survive and thrive.

    At my past job, my boss was a giant cock face.
    We had a QBR (Quarterly Business Review) scheduled three weeks out. I was on the agenda to present. My boss gave me such a hard time about my presentation. He kept returning my versions with edits, and instructions to 'redo' entire sections. I was sick by the time the day for the QBR arrived.
    As I got up to present, my boss suddenly announced, "Oh hey GatGirl...I forgot to tell you that I decided to remove you from the agenda for today so we could focus on (blah blah blah). You can just email us your presentation."
    He gave me such a shit eating smirk, and I felt the pity of everyone in that room.
    It was obvious he had just been putting the screws to me to watch me sweat before the big 'presentation'. He fucking waited for me to get up in front of about 70 people just to tell me to sit down.
    I can't tell you how humiliated I was...and how furious. I had spent so many sleepless nights making myself sick over the presentation.
    I never emailed the ppt to anyone...an no one ever asked for it.

    QBR. I know exactly what a QBR is. I had the same 'we cut you' experience and i was friggin delighted. Those QBRs never go well. Always want to be busy that day.

    I can see how this would be devastating. People like him, truly mental defectives who get off by fucking with others, just belong homeless or dead or in Alaska alone. Amazing that you never emailed it and it was never requested. Sorry to hear about this.

    Reading stuff like this is a reminder that no matter how frustrating or stressful running your own business is, it beats working for somene else by a mile.

    Ah, San Jose; the Mecca for shit heads fresh out of MIT and Stanford who are ready to take their dorm room pencil drawings public and mint new companies with shitty business plans, no product lines, over-leveraged balance sheets, and executive talent that can flee to China or India the minute the shit hits the fan. It's hard to believe, but it happens here in the dream factory we call Silicon Valley.

    Which brings us to you: How on earth are the VCs, angel investors and preferred shareholders in a failing company going to recoup their investment and cumulative dividend payments unless whiners like you aren't taught your place? It isn't easy to run a company into the ground. And the real problem is the lack of young talent to put in the 12 hour days necessary to make that happen.
