Interesting interview with Cruz.
Generally the trouble with CEO interviews is that in many ways it’s an exercise in juggling a double edged sword.
If the top dog believes his words might be read by his employees he’ll tend to temper his messages into an ambiguous mish mash of rhetoric that says not much at all.
If their entirely forthright they risk alienating the most important people in the organization.
In this instance, it falls short of real substance, but I’ll guarantee you if you’re a BA employee, there’s probably enough data for you to read between the lines and speculate about your future working conditions.
