I've seen the same myself in the banking world. The politicians spend all their time ensuring the boss thinks they are indespensible, their management abilities being pointed solely towards self-promotion and segregation from others. The good news for Compaq is that whilst a lot of good people are lost, and the head honcho departs, the a**hole who created the mess is living on borrowed time. Gutsch will either depart to rejoin Pfeiffer when Pfeiffer gets another position (if thats what he does), or he will be cold shouldered till he finds it unbearable to be so powerless that he will negotiate a big golden handshake (maybe above the one already on paper) and disappear.

Till that management change is made, the situation is going to be quite tense .... and bringing good people on board maybe difficult. I give Gutsch 6 months max ......

This is just the kind of thing that Rosen WON'T stand for nor tolerate.

'Should' is be true about Gutsch ... he's gone and gone FAST now that the story has visibly surfaced.

I'm somewhat surprised that Rosen hasn't taken steps against Gutsch already.
