I've read all of the comments and would like to reply, however I was fired from the company earlier today and am concerned that if I continue to comment I may be sued.

Silverbullet, if you can send me a private email, I'd like to speak with you.

You come to defend them and they fire you. How's that for the daily dose of irony?

.......here I was thinking it was up to a court of law to make these determinations. Now I see that a legal dept. can make the call? I'm now scared

FYI, no one of consequence in Oz has heard of this so called "one of the world's leading risk management and protective services firms" until the name popped up on SOCNET.

However, lots of people ( some of little to no consequence ) have heard of SOCNET downunder

The piss port excuse they gave me was that I wasn't doing my job well enough but I know its because I was on here. A friend told me a memo got sent out today telling people not to come on this website and not to comment on anything and it was apparently blocked from all the servers.

I feel for you and if true then you were screwed. As noted, you came and represented them in a professional manner. I'm sure you'll understand if I tell you to PM me vice giving you my email address. You may be posting under duress.

Anything you want to tell me will come across just fine via PM.

Thanks

VT,
You are absolutely correct, it is a Chicago number.. Jax Desmond office in New York at Trump Building 40 Wall Street is a Virtual Office from Davinci Virtual Office Solutions.

For a Risk Management Firm that claims to do well over a 100 million a year, you would think they could actually afford a REAL office in New York.

She sent the email from Toronto. In fact it came from the exact same IP that JDWRep registered from.

He's using a new one now. I can only assume this is due to him being fired.

What a train wreck

(Not to disparage trains, mind you, or to get sued by the railway companies for slander or defamation.)

My roommate applied for a position with this `company' last week. I told him it sounded hinky...when he comes off nights this morning I will be showing him this thread.

It seems that NOTHING about this `company' or this person is legit.

Now compare it to the picture of the 2 chicks sitting at the table with him that accompany the interview below. Nice staff.

http://the-red-couch.blogspot.com/20...x-desmond.html

That's a professional group.....Notice the use of the vague term "gov't contractor" again. LOL

Looks like somebody playing with daddy's money................and suit!

I've heard it said, to "fake it till ya make it"

However, I'm thinking this MIGHT be the wrong arena for that concept

So, if I were to say that in my humble opinion, this company sounds like one of the world's gayest risk management firms, and in the future I am going to make sure that none of my many friends and contacts in the SOF community would ever work for them, they could take legal action against me?

If that's the case, I better not say it, I guess.

Oh yeah, and I never heard of them, neither has anybody else I know. I do think it's amusing that they fire a guy working for them who is trying to represent them professionally. Maybe he can go work somewhere better now.

At least he won't have to lose betting his paycheck on finding good guys elsewhere to work with...

The only thing I'm even mildly curious about at this point is whether "Sascha" is the mildly hot one on the right, the not hot post-op TV on the left, or the dorky looking dude in the center....

And I want to know which one has been been dating Tiger......

Sascha is the dude next to the flip chart with that "operator" look

The attractive one is Pauline or Paulina. That's Jax Desmond's personal assistant. The other one is Wenda Lee, she's the admin assistant or secretary or something. And the guy in the back is Tyler or Tyrone or something and they call him Jax's assistant but everyone knows its his personal bodyguard.

Sascha is a man. He works in the London office as the pr manager or spokesperson or something. He's also a lawyer I believe.
