For Whom the Bell Tolls

I find it odd that Ms Barra gets a pass on these recalls as she was head of Global Product when this nightmare was under the radar. Simply firing underlings does not relieve her of responsibility in my mind. Furthermore, she has done absolutely nothing to improve the marketing, nor simplify the incentive matrix that boggles the minds of salespeople, sales managers, and customers. Yeah some "out of touch" dealers who serve on factory interfaces may proclaim greatness but they have no clue what the troops on the front line have to deal with. They just wait for their EBE, SFE and other stair steps to line their pockets while the grunts work for peanuts and deal with the frustration

There are claims New GM but it's really not any different. In the words of my old friend Eddie... "That's the way I see it".
