What the staff had to say about the fired president of Winthrop University

jamie-williamsonLast month the Winthrop University Trustees terminated Jamie Comstock Williamson after a string of run ins and misunderstandings.

According to an article in thestate.com a number of employees of Winthrop University described how Jamie Comstock Williamson had created a terrible work environment and reportedly yelled whenever she was angry.

Now when you hold a senior management role it’s important not to act like a child, however apparently nobody told Jamie Williamson that.

Some of the surprising statements to university trustees include..

  • Williamson yelling as she moved into her new office because of not enough file folders (apparently she needed 100 but only 30 were available)
  • Employees taking large paycuts and moving to different jobs on campus just to get away from her and her raging temper
  • Screaming at workers before even officially starting in the role!
  • One employee stated she threw an object against the wall!
  • Another employee described how the angry Williamson couldn’t get through an events meeting without raising her voice, and yelling about her busy schedule
  • One statement described Jamie returning from her vacation and it was accompanied by an escalation of yelling and meanness
