    Do these firms ever hire people other than heads of some new department?   They get paid tons of money and just delegate work to the staff.  I'll bet there are over 200 global heads of something of CEO's of something.  Meanwhile, they cut lower level people who do the actual work.  I do not know Dave Rolphe. But I know 35 other global heads at Wpp and all they do is have meetings to see what they can claim credit for.
