The jockeying for management positions has already begun. Anyone care to predict how this will shake out? Here's my prediction. Hopefully I'm wrong. 1) Most management people offered the deal won't take it. I say 25% max. 2) The managers (all levels) with good political connections will displace those less well connected. 3) The managers with good connections will take over for the people that knew what they were actually doing. 4) The people that actually knew what they were doing will be let go or forced out. 5) The politically connected replacement managers will run the operations further into disarray. 6) Five years from now, those who should have left will leave and recovery attempts will begin. 7) FedEx will continue to thrive as they pick up a lot of quality UPS management. 8) UPS will continue to struggle as management jobs become less and less attractive.
