Thread regarding Wells Fargo & Co. layoffs

Express personal bias much?

Webster’s essential meaning of ‘bias’: ‘a tendency to believe that some people, ideas, etc., are better than others that usually results in treating some people unfairly’

Take one (Sept 2020):

Commented that there is ‘a very limited pool of Black talent to recruit from’.

Led to the following apology: ‘…insensitive comment reflecting my own unconscious bias’.

Take two (Jan 2022):

On teams:

‘…I’ve got two daughters…they’ve got many tremendous qualities; being part of a sports team is not one of them’.

Webster’s primary definition of a team: ‘a number of persons associated together in work or activity’.

So the association with ‘sports’ seems distinctly willful / self-serving / inappropriate.

On team members:

‘…joining this company, it felt like a cult…’

‘…I don’t want to be mandated to use certain words…’. Well, no one mandated you use the ‘c’ word.

Webster’s primary definition of a cult: ‘a religion regarded as unorthodox or spurious’

As per Yogi Berra: ‘It's like deja-vu, all over again’.

Sorry (not sorry?) if I misspoke.

He’s not wrong. Johnny and his buddies ran this thing like a cult. It was all bu-----t and fluff. He got away with it by having the “ah shucks” midwestern mentality, when in reality it was a mismanaged mess. You want rah rah bc you cannot handle the real truth. Fact is, if you aren’t performing, no amount of rah rah and BS will get you there. You need truth and action. Time to retire, get a new “job” or get on board.

This post, like the ones complaining about the townhall "ums and uhs" (that everybody does in real life), demonstrates that life at WF isn't even 10% as hard as the posters tell themselves it is.

If the worst part of your day is successfully nitpicking a presentation, then you're doing really well. Congrats, not condolences.

Charlie is just having fun with his peeps. He is sending messages to us in code. His favorite rock band of all time is Blue Oyster Cult.
