1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    The first thing I would do is to shive someone in the employee cafeteria, shows you aren't a bitch.

    I would fire all of the senior people and replace them with cronies loyal only to me. At least that's how you do it in my field. [​IMG]

    Fire 10% of the workforce. At every company/firm/organization I've ever worked at, a bare minimum of 1 in 10 add nothing.

    At some places, the inverse is true: 90% can be made redundant.

    Never use Taleo for HR recruitment. It's like the code + database + GUI were designed in 1981 and haven't been updated at all.

    If I took over a company, I'd liquidate it, and leave with the $$$

    Didn't know that was a Welchism, but what can I say? Great mind grapes think alike.

    Fire all the employees, sell off the assets, and raid the pension fund?

    My first order of business would be to hire a really hot secretary, err, I mean executive "assistant."

    This is really, really bad idea unless she willingly puts out with not expectations of gifts, promotion or wedding ring.

    What's wrong with that?

    If I take over a company that is doing badly, it is better to liquidate it.

    If I take over a good company, I'd probably do nothing.
