  14. Gracia hired Kramer for the most important position in teh company. Get off of the female issue. We get it you were happy with the all boys club.

  15. Robin Pence was VP Communications for AES. She's the one who recommended Harker eight months ago. Obviously Pence still has some pull around here.

  16. What white males do you look up to? Hunke? The epitome of the old boys network. An utter failure as a manager and judge of talent.

    No, women don't bother me at all. Women with an agenda against men certainly do.

  18. Leaves $18 billion multinational with 50% earnings growth for a $5 billion company whose strategic goal is to grow at about the rate of inflation?

  19. 12:45 now that's funny on several levels!

  20. 9:17 and what exactly is this insidious agenda? She hired Jeremy, the new Robin Pence. She hired Kramer, the new Hunke. Whom other than M Banikarm did she hire that reports directly to her?
