Bullying Resources


My Personal Statement Against Bullies and Bullying in every form:

I absolutely despise all Bullies and every form of Bullying.  I got into Judo many years ago to learn to deal with physical bullying.  Many years later, I was certified as a Judo Coach and Instructor.  Teaching young people to defend themselves from physical bullying is one of the most gratifying experiences that I have ever had.  You can see some of these Judo Club pictures here:  http://billslater.com/judo . My name, William, means Helmet and the Protector.  Today, I will always protect my IIT students and those who are closest in my life from the perils of bullying.

A Real Life Story About Bullies - It Was A VERY Expensive Lesson For Them

SAIC's Culture of Deceit, Dishonesty and Bullying


SAIC's Culture of Deceit, Dishonesty and Bullying:


I saw some really spectacular karmic whammies in 2012, but the sweetest one was SAIC.

2001 - 2003 - While at SAIC, the management and coworkers tormented me and created a toxic work environment for me to work in, every day. I even reported this to the company Ethics Hotline but they did nothing because they were in bed with Management and Management allowed and probably even encouraged this Toxic Bullying, Mobbing Culture. 

One of their favorite things to bug me about was to make the inputting of my work time data so difficult that it would sometimes take as long as four hours to get it all together and put it in because I was doing complex tasks and the work of three people (Data Center Manager, Change Management Manager, and System Administrator). So I went off on vacation in July 2002 to a Slater family reunion in Canada, and did the analysis of my job, and designed and wrote a highly accurate time-tracker program for Windows using Visual Basic. After I started using the tool I created, they never messed with me again about Time Reporting. But during a staff meeting after I returned from vacation and showed them the progam and its output, they laughed at me and mocked me and said that they never would have created something like that while on vacation. My response was, "Well, you're not me." You can see the program and the story of my Time Tracker program creation at these links:



2002 - A few weeks after I wrote my program, I asked my boss during a one-on-one meeting if she could explain how our Team was not living up to the majority of statements in this one-page reminder on ethical behaviors (see below).  She became enraged and immediately terminated the discussion.

2003 - My boss verbally trashed me publically after her best friend was reported for sending out a defammatory e-mail about me.  Both she and her best friend were severely disciplined for this.

2012 - SAIC gets in HUGE trouble over time charge discrepancies and falsely overcharging for time reporting with the City of New York. They negotiated a settlement, but the penalty levied in the settlement was $500.4 MILLION. Root causes: 1) Inability to live up to their Code of Conduct; 2) A culture of Bullying in their Management Ranks; 3) Inability to administer an effective Ethics Hotline program. You can see the SAIC $500.4 MILLION outcome at this link: http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-03-14/saic-to-pay-500-million-to-settle-new-york-city-time-fraud-case.html


Isn't ironic that within 10 years, SAIC got such a huge Karmic Whammy, and that it was all related to Time Reporting, both times?

No Delete Key

SAIC just wanted to pay the $500.4 million and make this bad news go away.  But what they forgot is that there is No Delete Key on the Internet.   As long as there is a Google, and other search engines, this SAIC fraud story will be out there on the Internet.  And actually, that's a good thing.
