People tend to forget that Mr. Nice Ernie Chen is also Mr. No Nonsense especially when it comes to productivity and performance.
If you have forgotten, please let me remind you that I expect High productivity and Exceptional Performance from each of our team members. I do not care if you are working with us as a full time employee, part time staff, contract staff or as an intern. The company and myself do not owe anyone a living. We pay you to deliver desired results. If you do not, you will be terminated. That's what happens. I just terminated 3 contract staff and 1 intern last Friday. This happened after numerous reminders and them being reprimanded so many times on the same mistakes. Please do remember that it is always an honor for us to work together. So please do respect that. The moment we disrespect that partnership, be sure that I will take action and the action will be loud and clear.
