Cafe Au Yay!
Thank you to the person who posted the kind words on Cafepharma yesterday; and, to all those who have visited the page in the last 24 hours and over the last month. It is truly appreciated. As I’ve mentioned, I read two sites daily (Cafepharma is the second), to test my theories regarding The Sociopathic Business Model™. The insight I gained from what some (a small faction) would call a ‘hate site,’ when in actuality much of it is a ‘truth site’ used for diagnosing (or calling the system) regarding unethical or illegal behavior validates many of the points.
If any of you, were like me and tried the traditional avenues to legally protect yourself but found management to be dismissive, hotlines to be hot messes, then you too, likely found solace on the pages of Cafepharma. It’s always nice to know that you’re not alone, especially in tough and trying times, as we all eventually face.
Funny thing, I talked to a lot of people in management (many companies) in preparation of writing a book and Cafepharma is a very sore subject. Remember the enemy to The Sociopathic Business Model™ is the truth. Most in management dismiss the site as one manager put it as ‘mean spirited gossip,’ (and at times it can be), but when pushed if asked if there is any truth in what is written, every manager said, “Yes, but…,” so there’s that.
Sites like Cafepharma would not exist if management from the executives on down were doing their jobs properly, but they aren’t. People are frustrated with lack of transparency regarding quotas, misinformation regarding products, lack of transparency in their bonus structure (Stryker Microimplants did it the best, a straight 14% of what was sold from dollar 1-no flow chart, no graph or no sherpa was necessary in figuring out paychecks from month to month). I don’t think my former industry is alone in the mistreatment of employees though.
In less than one month the Killing My Career page has had over 5,000 organic (not paid) hits from 23 different countries with some pretty interesting traffic, ranging from MIT to the DOJ (I guess we can spy on the government too). 75% of the traffic is from the US and 25% from other parts of the world (which is truly humbling).
So the topic must be resonating with people, which is sad, but good. The more light we can shed on fraud, employee violations, and mismanagement, the greater the opportunities we have to create positive change throughout the industries. I hope to gain your respect and trust throughout this process, so that anyone may feel comfortable leaving comments. If you’d like to leave a comment and want to remain anonymous please feel free to do so.
And again, thank you for reading,
