Suicide Mission
Posted On: Apr 02, 2024
Apr. 2, 2024 | INVESTIGATIONS | John Barnett had one of those bosses who seemed to spend most of his waking hours scheming to inflict humiliation upon him. He mocked him in weekly meetings whenever he dared contribute a thought, assigned a fellow manager to spy on him and spread rumors that he did not play nicely with others, and disciplined him for things like “using email to communicate” and pushing for flaws he found on planes to be fixed. “John is very knowledgeable almost to a fault, as it gets in the way at times when issues arise,” the boss wrote in one of his withering performance reviews, [casting] the 26-year quality manager as an anal-retentive prick whose pedantry was antagonizing his colleagues. The truth was self-evident to anyone who spent five minutes in his presence: John Barnett, who raced cars in his spare time and seemed “high on life” was a “great, fun boss that loved Boeing and was willing to share his knowledge with everyone”… Learn what Boeing did to all the guys who remember how to build a plane.
