It's usually the tyrannical equity partners in BigLaw that are positioned/packages as the bosses from hell.
Well, at the New York Post, Maureen Callahan gives that honor to Kerry Kennedy, president of the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Judicial and Human Rights. In the last year, nine employees have walked. Here you can read the hatchet job.
The Post profile depicts her as a "monster." Her signature is to shame subordinates in public. Her style of leadership and management is increasingly "unhinged." Worst of all, the focus on assisting with human rights around the world seems a low priority. Instead, her attention is allegedly on socializing with fellow celebrities.
Most recently, this Kennedy has been in the news because of a hit and run. She contended she was on Ambien and won that case in court. Many of the Kennedy clan were in the courtroom, including matriarch Ethel.
Before that, it was the breakup of her marriage to now-New York governor Andrew Cuomo the riveted media. But back then she had Uncle Ted to defend her.
That the Post could and would hammer this Kennedy likely is a sign of the times: The Kennedy dynasty no longer exerts a magnetic field. Neither does the Bush one. Instead the fascination is with the Clinton dynasty and the emerging Trump one.
The legacy of Camelot no longer has a hold on us.
