Word Count: Megan Findakly MGMT- 626: Management Consulting Pract & Meth Professor Fowler 08 December 2016 Case #3 “Divorced from ethics, leadership is reduced to management and politics to mere technique.” James MacGregor Burns After three years at GL Consulting (‘GLC’), Tim Hertach, a junior partner, learned about the “Proposal to Enhance Value,” the new revaluation proposal presented by two other GLC partners. Hertach immediately questioned the new structure, which provides senior partners, who compose 20% of the firm, with 80% ownership of the firm with huge windfalls, and more disconcerting, it leaves the other 80% of partners trying to pay for it. Specifically, junior partners would have to invest about 80% of their annual bonus, instead of the 30% they previously had invested. Hertach believed that the senior partners organized a system that would allow them to cash out, potentially draining GLC’s capital, thus adversely affecting Hertach through the financial risks and obligations this proposal would carry. While he would be $250,000 richer on paper, he would have to stay longer with the firm to have the shares vest.

“The way human beings consume food has changed more in the last fifty years, than in the previous 10,000,” Michael Pollan, the director of Food Inc. states in the opening line. However, the constructed marketing schemes used to sell this food still paint a picture of agricultural, farming America. (2009) But the reality couldn’t be any more different. In supermarkets, seasonal foods are now year round, boneless meat is an option. Eric Schlosser refers to this as the “deliberate veil,” (2009) a concealment of where our food products are coming from, a truth the industry doesn’t want consumers to be aware of.

At this stage, the company reached its peak with 28,000 people employed in the US and more than 85,000 people employed worldwide, with revenues soaring up to around $9.3 billion. It was during this time, in 1986, that the company engaged Enron as one of its clients providing both internal and external auditing services, in addition to consulting services. Few would have guessed that the 16-year relationship between Enron and Arthur Andersen would have lead to the failure of both companies, dwindling the company from an established audit firm to a simple limited liability company (Edelman & Nicholson, 2008). In the past, Arthur Andersen was already involved in some suspicious activities since it was linked to the Mafia of Chicago and the CIA, it was part of an underground espionage operation in Greece, and covered up a huge misappropriation of the First National Bank in Chicago in the 1970s. However, the biggest misconduct of them all surely related to the Enron case where it hid millions of dollars of debt of the energy firm from the

In 1993, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced its conclusion from available research that environmental tobacco smoke (ETS), the side-stream smoke in the air that is inhaled by nonsmokers as a result of tobacco smoking, causes lung cancer (Levinthal).

The Elgin BBQ Pit opened its doors on October of 2012. After quitting my job and having knowledge of the unemployment rate of 8.5 % and the economy growth of only 1.7% in compare to last year statistics of 4.9% unemployment and 3.5 % at the time I decided that it would be a good time to open a restaurant on my own. I knew and I was certain that our economy would recover and as matter of fact it did and that’s why we are still in business on one of the industries where 90 percent of independent establishments closed within the first year. We had a rough first year but I like to say and give the credit to one of our most loyal customers since day one. (Elgin Police department also I like to mention that the comments from our customers is that,

No wonder our nation has gone stock market mad” (America In
We have jokingly related America and fast food chains together but there is a reason for it. Near I live there is a McDonalds, 10 minutes away there is another and another. Business such as Mcdonald 's are embodiments of American capitalism and culture. When we see these fast food restaurants in other countries they are spreading our identity over the world. In Jessica Naudziunas’ article “Where in the World Are there No McDonald 's?” we can see my history teacher 's point being shown.
