I've heard several examples of ET people getting off cycle increases. I believe they are in developer roles. I know people were turned off by the transformation layoffs. So I guess this is good news that SF wants to try and improve morale in the... —  read more

When will they ever?

Admit they made some big mistakes. Humility diminishes to nothing as you move up the ranks at SF. They expect it on the front lines but not as you move up. They think humility is a sign of weakness when in reality it is very powerful in... —  read more

What the heck have you done State Farm?

I saw a sign on LinkedIn the other day from a CEO quote. To paraphrase:. Your brand is what people say behind closed doors. I thought about it and it is so true. I am astonished how a company like State Farm has so much money with its brand... —  read more

Beancounters

Beancounters should not be elevated to CEO. I have seen this several times and it never works out well. People, like MT, do not have an appreciation for culture or the historical significance of the roots of this company. Another fine example of... —  read more

Phoenix/Tempe complex.

I'm surprised that no one has mentioned that SF relinquished the #1 building to Carvana, the auto vending machine company. #1 employess had to move the remaining buildings. Maybe employee count not increasing as predicted?

Isn't it amazing

Isn't it amazing how great a business is when the employees trust their leadership. It is obvious employees don't trust their leadership? Isn't it obvious employees don't believe their leadership? Businesses fail because of this.
