Dewey Proposes $165,000 Bonus for Finance Director Canellas

Filings supporting the request reveal that Dewey had a history of paying its finance staffers substantial bonuses.

    What the hell.

  • Legacy Dewey Staffer

    This is utterly DISGUSTING!!! How do these folks get huge, undeserved bonuses in 2012 while the firm was going under? Canellas, Rodriguez and Sucoff are no more than co-conspirators with the three criminals (Davis, DiCarmine and Sanders) to defraud Dewey. May you reap what you sow!!
