Pink Slips and Parting Gifts
 

Authored by Deb Hosey White

By the time Easton Company CEO Jeffrey Elkins entices a major competitor to buy his Fortune 500 company, the corporate jet is waiting and his parachute is platinum. In thirteen weeks the deal of a lifetime transforms a handful of quirky executives into undeserving multimillionaires, propels a workforce into unemployment and dispatches unsuspecting retirees into poverty. In the background, security guards dance naked in mall fountains, the corporate jet is sold on eBay, and a CEO utters his final words before relinquishing his title: Make sure the employees get their pumpkin pies.

The memorable cast of corporate characters includes a germophobic CEO, a marketing VP turned Elvis impersonator, the Sundance Kid of Everyman Compensation, and a purchasing director nicknamed the eBay Wizard.

An estimated one in five corporate employees has experienced a merger or acquisition. Pink Slips and Parting Gifts is their story - the one every corporate cubicle jockey, business-class road warrior and mid-level manager will want to read.

This is the new 2012 edition.
