    The 14-year staffer is correct. A past CMO, brought in by Ralph, actually made the comment in a marketing staff meeting, "The firm doesn't care about staff" trying to make it sound like a joke. It landed on the conference table like a lead balloon. It wasn't funny; we knew it was true. With that said, in this instance the lawyers were kept in the dark as much as the staff. And treated just as badly. Even many partners. And, of course Frank is staying all the way to the end. He knows where all the money went.
