    JPMorgan Chase Whistleblower: 'Essentially Suicide' To Stand Up To Bank

    Its a sad time in America, it used to be honesty was the best policy. Today greed permeates everything big business does and that greed has no illegal or immoral limits. It must be changed for america to survive.

    JPMorgan Chase Whistleblower: 'Essentially Suicide' To Stand Up To Bank


    When Linda Almonte alerted her boss at JPMorgan Chase about potential fraud in a major deal she was helping to close, she expected him to applaud her great catch.
    Instead, he fired her.


    "We went down fast," said Almonte, 41, about her family. She had been making $100,000 a year as a division vice president at Chase, enough to support her stay-at-home husband, their four kids, ages 12 to 22, and rent a three-bedroom house in San Antonio, Texas.

    Unfortunately it's not generally fun or pleasant to do the Right thing in today's society. It's horrible what tends to happen to these people, but is it really all that surprising considering the environment/society we find in America today?

    Yep. Trust me, I see it every single day in the office I work in. I've lost count of the number of people who have lost their jobs here because they were unwilling to "play the game" the way the company wants to.

    Crap like this pisses me off. I see "the game" being played every single day at work, too. Funny, just last night, I saw it going down...one guy on the phone with the district manager, tooting his own horn about HE is so great, HIS effort keeps the place afloat, etc etc etc...so I called him out on it, right there, in the middle of the phone call.


    People wanna play the game around me, they better hope they are better at it than me. Because I hate that ****, and I'll play the game just to see those folks ousted.

    Honesty is a virtue......if you can survive.


    Generally speaking, in the workplace, honesty is the absolute WORST policy. You can't manage up...so when the folks above you screw up, you can't let them know about it...unless you play the game to do so. Passive aggressive like....never THEIR screw up...just THE screw up.....that sorta thing. Same with subbordinates, though. Can't be honest with them. Can't tell the person who takes 30 minutes to make a couple of copies on the copier that they suck, and that the world would be a better place if they just quit and got a job at the DMV. Nor can you tell the office tramp to put some clothes, no one wants to see her whale tail sticking out of her **** me skirt. Nope. As a general rule, honesty gets you fired. If people wanted honesty in their lives, they'd hire their wives to work for them. And they don't. For exactly that reason.

    I dont like this new way...and i feel very fortunate to be out of the job market....I would not survive today

    Id like to add here...its NOT the young people that made it this way...they werent even born yet...its my generation that created this work environment of greed at all costs and created all the new world swindles and cheats and steals...
    Its the american baby boomer....I will clarify that with its the top 2% babyboomers...not the working mass's

    Nah. I've seen my share of folks go out the door. I've never been fired in my life, just laid off once, 9 months ago. I know how to play the game. And I use that knowledge to **** with every single person around me who tries to play the game. I don't always win. Scum bags still get promoted around me, despite my best efforts. But that's life. Generally, though, I play the game to get the RIGHT people promoted, or to help the better people become successful. For instance, at my current job, with the giant douche bag who thinks he's the king swinging dick...I picked right up on the line he was using, joined the convo I heard happening, and called him out on the **** he was saying, right there, with the DM. This guy, by the way, is one of my bosses. He's between me, and the head honcho. And he wants to be the head honcho...bad. So he's doing everything he can to make the head look bad, and him look good. Talking about all the **** he's doing to make the place run better, all the hours he puts in, him him him. No we. No team. Just him. And he was talking about stuff he's implemented, etc...stuff that I actually put into place, or that another guy started, etc. Which is exactly what I asked him. And he stuttered for a bit, then said, yeah, he HAD US do it, which I told him no, actually, we took our own initiative, and did it. After the convo, I told head honcho about it, and I expect the dude will get fired by the end of the week. I also expect that the person REALLY responsible for a lot of those positive changes douche was talking about, and hourly employee...will get a promotion to a salaried position. Which is as it should be.
