The Old Compaq Had A Lot More To Love Than The New

Your recent article "Compaq" (Cover Story, Nov. 2) could not have been more sickening to those of us readers who witnessed and were part of Rod Canion's building Compaq into the best place to work in the world. Under CEO Eckhard Pfeiffer, the new regime has brought back all the old management styles this country needs to get rid of to be successful.

Mistrust, fear, and disloyalty are now commonplace in the halls of a company that once went out of its way for its people.
