  • In a private corporation, they would get fired.
    In a government run corporation, they would get a promotion!! :o)

  • They become members of the Presidents Cabinet or run for office themselves.

  • They should be fired because they are putting the entire company at risk of failure. Kind of like what is happening in DC?

  • It depends.
    My ol man ran over budget last month by more than 150K and he was taken to lunch and told " don't do that no more" and the 3 of them spent the afternoon golfing.
    Me? I'm not allowed to have office stamps yet.

  • Wow, it is amazing how many people think corps are BIG! Most corps are really Mom & Pop operations. In there case..they would go bankrupt if they can't run on a budget.
