Apparently the effort to downsize McDonald's has no plan or logic. For a mature company
to have a lack of middle management is a sign of incompetence. Of course, the downsizing
is being managed by people who know little or nothing about McDonald's so some of this
blundering is to be expected.
This Linkedin job posting is interesting. It appears that the new position of "Operations Assistant" has a primary function - reporting Operator food safety problems to HQ.
Will that attract quality people or just nasty, control-freak types?
