End of the Day: 10/1/2008

Weird day today.  Still trying to figure out these supposed FAQs which still dance around certain issues and give non-answers in place of answers.  Anyone have one of those neat Magic 8 Balls?  Perhaps we should consult that instead . . .

News articles are up to date but shortage of real news out there until other departures begin.  Certain offices are ghost-towns.  But also it appears that our brethren at another SF firm, Thelen are going through the same issues as on the S.S. Heller.  I know we have lots of Thelen visitors – if you know someone from Thelen call them up, send them an email.  Let ’em know you are thinking of them and ask if there is anything they need.  We’re all in this together.

And you mister: go home, relax if you can.  Watch some baseball.  Have a beer.  Kick back.  Take it all in.

Our on-board entertainment over on the Lido Deck, now appearing is The Jam singing That’s Entertainment.  No special reason – don’t read too much into it – the tune is a great one.

Over and out.

    Okay, now about the other elephant in the room — staff was in the process of being reviewed for end of year bonus. The review period runs Oct 1, 2007 through Sept. 30, 2008. Now we’re f***d in that expectation too. We worked our butts off for 12 months, only to get some ridiculous WARN notice and being tortured with emails from management about “maybe we’ll pay your benefits” until Nov. 28. I understand associates may get something – maybe not – but certainly the staff will get NOTHING. Not even a turkey. We’re supposed to settle for insincere apologies, constant snarky emails from “management” or “dissolution committee”, etc. Yes, I’m pissed off, hurt and disgusted. And I’m sure I’m not the only one.

Heller Highwater is:

- a place for support, a place of empowerment, a place of passion;

- a place to learn about job leads, resume preparation, skill building, training, new opportunities, and how to succeed in a new workplace;

- a place to keep up on the latest news as to how Heller Ehrman management intends to treat its support staff as it winds down its operations - will it be every woman for herself? or will it be "let me hold the door for you and is there anything else I can do for you"?

- a place of refuge.
