(en) France, Alternative Libertaire #223 - The Chronicles of alienated labor: Geraldine CFO. (fr) [machine translation]
Wed, 09 Jan 2013 11:47:54 +0200
The Chronicles of alienated labor by Marie-Louise Michel, occupational psychologist "shut
up and listen! "Geraldine, Chief Financial Officer  ---- I am accountant but I accepted
an accounting position in this box then because the CFO was close to retirement, the
President agreed that I am preparing to take his place. It went well like that, but they
did not replaced, I combined the functions ... I wanted to be worthy of my post, I wanted
to get there. I was a little naive. It was a lot of work. As a woman, I know that I always
have to justify, make double ... It really is degraded when passed under the SAP, the
large group who has redeemed us. He had to train everyone in eight days, without being
discharged current. This is a very vicious, everything is controlled by finance, everyone
must return its activity, there is no need accountants either!
I found myself alone in having financial expertise! And I continued to do what I'm told. I
worked weekends, and less all the time I got there, the more I worked ... I did not know
what it was that failure. I had previously a successful career. A family with two children
... I worked hard for it all but without major obstacles. For me, it was " if you want,
you can . "
It was merged with another unit of the group two years ago, the accounts were not good,
scales unbalanced, I pulled the alarm siren. A large meeting in Paris, when I asked why I
was told "shut up and listen! ". They've balanced the scales and solved the problem
without ever explain. Never allowed to walk me to understand, this is a group of 10,000
people ... An army of sheep, it is silent. We're local rednecks. I told the auditor, it
has not certified. I do not understand anything, I was zero.
One night, I cried, I called my mom, she told me " stand still! ". This is what I did.
And the president called me at home to tell me they had found three people to do my job!
This is at least what he was ... That did not stop the large group finance director to
call me on my mobile and I worked from home ... They've "allowed" to take my vacation as a
result, and when I returned, they had added a general manager financial! I found in my
office, I had to go to a greasy spoon ... It has less qualifications than me, I have not
been kind ... With the President were walking hand in hand, he has sustained, the daughter
of the audit as they have sponsored, but it bard, they asked to testify for the transfer,
I did not, but others yes, he is gone, he resigned the ... President General has laminate.
I did tachycardia this summer, nocturnal seizures, malaise ... It's the stress, but I've
lost my zeal, I finished 18 hours, I got involved in the association of parents but it is
less exciting! There are two people in me, and I want to continue to stop ... But I would
not end up like my father taxes ...
 Only the name is changed, the rest is authentic.
