This email was received by a friend of mine today from her boss:
Since we seem to have some misunderstandings in how things are working right now, I thought I would document the new rules.
Until we have generated revenue all work is going to be done in the office. If you have to make up hours then come into the office. If you have late interviews then stay late or don’t schedule it for evening or weekends. (and I’m sorry *name changed*, I know how hard you are working but I can’t do this for everyone but you) From now on if you work at home it doesn’t count.
If you don’t work 45 hours a week you are fired.
Everyone needs to come up with suggestions for how we are going to save money and we will discuss in on Monday afternoon. There needs to be some major changes and everyone is going to have to pitch in.
I’m sick of the excuses, the attitudes, and feeling like I’m being taken advantage of.
If anyone doesn’t like this, I suggest you leave and find alternative employment.
I don't care how tough times are. There is no excuse for poor leadership.
