A former creative director mentioned, "Geeknet suffered from multiple changes in ownershp and rampant layoffs while I worked there. They are slashdot media now. The people were great. Management became increasingly fractured and incompetent as time went on. I was laid off after surviving 9 rounds of previous layoffs."
says"Dysfunctional managers and demotivated teams point to a lack of leadership and basic skills competency at the executive and managerial levels.
