“You’re evil: you cut 5,000 jobs at the last company you advised.”
I was part of a team that made a recommendation. If the business was doing well, why call on us to improve it? If it was doing badly, it will be gone sooner or later anyway. If that happens, you’ll lose more than 5,000 jobs.
“You just tell people what they know already.”
If they knew it already, why didn’t they act on it?
“…and all that happens at the end is that the executives award themselves big bonuses.”
That was not part of the recommendation we made.
