Hewlett-Packard Forces Celebrity CEO to Quit (washingtonpost.com)
I don't know (nor care) if the decline in HP was due to Carly Fiorina, or other problems with Hewlett Packard. I do know that under her direction, the company was transformed from a "flat" management structure where all employees were valued and respected to a typical corporate prima donna elitist culture. Moreover, a company that once stood for rock solid reliability and equipment that was synonymous with quality has become a repository for mass marketed junk, abysmal customer "service" and management that seems to need a proctologist to locate their heads. Good riddance.
