Uber President Jones Quits Amid Turmoil and Search for COO

While I am not saying that everyone else in a leadership position at Uber should also quit....crap, I guess now that I think about it, that IS what I am saying. 😀

The scandals range from allegations of sexual harassment and a toxic work culture to the combative behavior of Chief Executive Officer Travis Kalanick. After Bloomberg published a video on Feb. 28 showing Kalanick berating an Uber driver, he said he would seek “leadership help” and was planning to hire a chief operating officer. The plan was viewed internally as an effective demotion for Jones, who was hired last year as president of ride-sharing and second in command, a person familiar with the matter said.
