Found this in an old thread as a response, but I believe it's spot on and worth a read. Posted by @RPEx8FP-1Oxxo.
Its not as much as overlap at BMD as it is about the new GM and VP. The R&D director level was cut by 50%. A few Marketing and no QA were let go.
The new GM is not interested in process and more likely to ruin the current culture to one that stabs people in the back.
The VP is a director at best with no leadership abilities. Associates are praying to get laid off so that they get their options rather than walk away. Innovation will be few and far between with this duo. Oh well, back to work.
