Thanks to the Board TSI is no more

ProsMy coworkers, the guys and gals that invented the products and designed the gadgets, were absolute gems... human resources and accounting not so much.

ConsDuring my time at this company I went through a few hostile takeovers.

Some that survived the layoffs were bitter miserable people that threw others under the bus to save themselves. All of us knew we were going to lose our jobs at a certain point so the hostility some of the rank and file showed towards the end was completely unnecesary. I hope they didn't carry that poison to their next position.

Advice to Senior ManagementDear Chairman & Board of Directors: when trying to lower a company's stock price so you can purchase more at a discount it might be a good idea to NOT run your investment into the ground.

You ruined the reputation of 3 CEOs that were trying to keep the company together and over 2000 people employed.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
