    Advice to Management

    I loved Hubert; he was in touch with the business and made great decisions. My experience with Corie so far has not been too positive. She’s timid and seems to stick a script. She needs to be more human. I’m also not sure she’s truly “running” the company. Many of her direct reports are basically running the show and it comes across in a lot of different, conflicting messaging.
