    Can you give us examples of lies you accuse the studio of?


    Pulling up a chair and grabbing some popcorn.

    Puts out a couple of Cokes on the table to share and takes a bowl of that fine looking popcorn.

    Waits for some good arguments why manually processing anything of this magnitude in a professional business project isn't worthy of scathing criticism and rebuke. Taking notes! :lol:

    Apparently, no one in the entire organization under Mark Jacobs was trustworthy enough to trust with refunds.  What does that say about both MJ and CSE?
    It has nothing to do with actual Trust. My job was a foreman on site, and while my boss trusted me to not only make, but also sign off on multi million dollar purchase orders, I never once had to process a refund or return, that was that the accountants did.

    Sometimes it's just an issue of "Not your job"

    So the CEO of your construction company did the accountant work? What were you a 5 person mom and pop op? Because that is what is happening here. The accountants (if there are any) aren't doing that apparently. The CEO is doing it all. The above points by myself and Mighty Unclean stand.
    Actually, I've worked for small businesses with 30 or so employees (CU doesn't have more than 50 I'm guessing) and it isn't unusual for the owners (stop calling them CEOs, that's a big corporate title) to keep a tight hand on who can sign the checks to actually spend money.

    More than one business has taken it in the chin hard or even failed because they trusted the wrong person to handle to money.

    I'm not surprised he has to be the one to "push the button" on giving refunds, after all, by all accounts he's put a large amount of his own money into this endeavor.

    I recall a story a few years back where a company's CFO embezzled $4M from his employer, and quickly spent $2M on a mobile game. (That one Arnold S used to promote)

    That is certainly a testament that many small businesses are poorly run and businesses of any size are subject to theft and fraud from poor oversight. No wonder so many fail.

    But again, he's doing more than just supervising and approving, he's manually processing each one like this is 1944. It is definitely possible to run a tight ship while still delegating jobs and tasks to the appropriate people and providing executive oversight. Micro-management and inefficient management are likely why this project is closing in on being a decade overdue.

    They took the payments electronically, where is the automation to refund the payments electronically?  Even if you're going to use a single authority, don't neglect automation.

    That has created a single point of failure.

    Logic, my dear, merely enables one to be wrong with great authority.
