J. Vincent Eagan, JD, Ph.D.  |  Business Law

Important issues in the interface between the law and the internet are being adjudicated in court. Key issues are: (1) are gig workers (e.g., Uber drivers) contractors or employees?

Designed by Comcast in Philadelphia

Katherine Campbell, Ph.D.  |  Org Behavior & HR

Historically, Comcast has not been one of America’s most loved companies, and it had a reputation for providing clunky cable boxes and poor customer service. But Comcast is changing and wants to be loved. Instead of simply providing cable boxes and access to ever-changing lists of television channels, Comcast wants to make the TV the home’s command center. In doing so, Comcast needs to change its corporate culture to be more like a cool technology company and less like a regulated utility monopoly.

The Hail Mary Pass Of Executive Pay

Katherine Campbell, Ph.D.  |  Org Behavior & HR

The hedge fund, H Partners Management, is introducing an uncommon executive pay practice at Six Flags Entertainment and Tempur Sealy International. Executives receive incentive stock grants with performance thresholds so improbable that the companies deem them worthless at the date of grant. Nevertheless, some of the targets are being met, and executives already have received tens of millions in compensation. This compensation practice raises questions about incentives and potentially inadequate disclosure of compensation, dilution and risk.

Govern This With These?

Michael S. Raisinghani, Ph.D.  |  Operations Management

The Great Sea Turtle Migration

Duane Helleloid, Ph.D.  |  International Business

Around a third of foreign students studying in U.S. universities are Chinese, and after graduation many take a job working in the U.S., but after a few years, some return home to help create technologies and companies in China. In Chinese, these professionals are referred to as hai gui, or "sea turtles" that come come home after a long journey.

Now the Boss Can Monitor Your Phone
