People in middle management and below usually work well and hard.

Jane Fedoretz, Chief Talent and Transformation Officer of TransAlta, participates in this week`s virtual “Women Lead Here” event, presented by the @globeandmail. No company is perfect, but this one is really close to an illegitimate and ruthless leadership that only takes care of itself.
People are treated like disposable items, and they will tell you that in the face, even if you do well or exceed expectations. The guided tour focused on getting $$ bonus for yourself, but turn around and turn the people who worked hard to avoid paying the bonus. HR is only in the name and there to respond to the commandments of the leadership….
