not at all, it was kinda a joke, but based on reality, all new CEO's are given targets / goals and their bonus's / remuneration are based on meeting these goals. Its a sad fact of life when you give people targets, especially when you link the targets to pay, then people will do just about anything to meet their targets and screw everything and everyone else, I've seen it over and over and over again just about everywhere I've ever worked.

You can multiply this effect by about 1000 when the new CEO has no former connection to the company. Target - cut costs, this always means cut staff, generally cost center staff, hey, IT are paid a lot, cut them, off shore, near shore etc etc, close expensive sites, stop infrastructure projects and upgrades etc etc

All of which is short sighted in the extreme, its time all companies woke up to the fact they are IT companies, that just so happen to sell food (or whatever) without IT they wouldn't even be able to make / receive a phone call or even get into the building let alone type into their cost benefit xls sheet to decide who stays and goes.

Then at the end of the year senior managers can all pat themselves on the back for increasing ebita while banking their share schemes / pension contributions / bonus before anyone works out they have totally screwed the company - just in time to hire a new CEO.



As a generalisation you are right, but for once, Nestle operates differently
