Those of you who who have had a real job outside finance (or in the craft of finance for that matter) must know what I am talking about. "How did such an incompetent lazy prick ever worked his way up the chain of comand? They earn several times the salary of the footsoldiers yet I fail to see how many of them offer the same kind of contribution to a company then the workers themselves do. Those of you who ever worked for a big company and or have attended meetings within them must be able to relate to this. There is so much timewaste and bullshit.... Anyway, I wonder.. Has it ever been tried, cutting of the middle men and rewarding your work force adequately? Did these firms crash and burn? Thanks for any response.
