Fall of AT&T Wireless
You may already know that I spent over five years working at AT&T Wireless, and have some strong opinions on how the company managed to destroy itself. The Seattle PI has a long, insightful article on this today, which is the best piece I’ve seen written on it so far. It’s particularly good on the cultural and leadership issues that infected everything about the company. John Zeglis was paid many, many millions for the utter incompetence that destroyed AWS, and will receive tens of millions more when they snuff the candle. I think of this every time someone tells me that baseball players are overpaid.
