Enron Whistleblower

“[After] working with Andy Fastow, the imprisoned former CFO of Enron, I’d advise folks to run from toxic bosses as fast as you can. If your value system is being challenged on a routine basis, leave as soon as possible. Switch divisions, switch companies, move now! You can’t change your boss or the company from below or even from two rungs from the top.... As for clueless bosses, I’d have to include Ken Lay, Enron’s former CEO, in that category. Clueless is far worse than toxic, because at least with toxic you can begin to predict behaviors. With clueless, what you’d expect from a boss can vary widely from their actual behavior. Crooks are much easier to deal with than fools.”
