The Problem with the C-level Exec Who’s Leaving

Posted by & filed under , , .

There has been recently increased attention in the media for Uber, after the blog post from Susan Fowler about her terrible (probably a mild term here, I agree) experience while at Uber — and even more so as of today their SVP of engineering stepping down after sexual harassment allegations during his previous job at […]

This quarter Netflix spoiled us with a party themed “The Crown”, following the success of this original series.
