    How many company owners or those considering purchasing one, would consider a change that would allow for an owner to elect a VP to offer limited control? (assist with hire, fire and train)

    No thanks, I think it should be up to the director to make the necessary changes. Especially because we'd eventually get a bunch of whiners who say that their VP kicked everyone in their company out and then left.

    The potential for good is great, but the potential for annoyance is greater.

    A lot of companies are already run by VP's, people have friends hold the company for them. Theres no need for a official position.

    I can't see the benefits to be honest, training is easy enough and only needs to happen once every 4 days in a full 4 star 15 employee CLA and I can see no reason why I would want to give someone else the rights to hire or fire for my company, if there is an issue with an employee I'd much prefer to deal with it myself

    I'm guessing by most of the posts that this is a fail but perhaps a system should be set into motion for an owner to set up an 'auto train' option in the event that they should become ill and cannot sign on so as to train their employees?

    If you can't be bothered to log in and manage your company than you should suffer the consequences.  Before someone says what if the person becomes ill or has some real life issue, well, there is no proof of that. Unless you want staff reviewing doctors notes, there is no way to distinguish a real issue from laziness.

    Your employees log in everyday why shouldn't you?? And they increased the capacity to hold trains so if you don't log in you still get the trains you just cant use them until you log in. Makes sense to me.
    *********** is like your crazy ex gf. They cant get enough out of you. You ignore them but they keep texting you like "hey, hey look at my! I still love u!" And just like a crazy exgf all you can is ignore. They dont bother you but they are sad.

    I personally think it would be cool. This is how real companies work and would friends a way to interact together. It's not about you login in in everyday it would give me a chance to work with a friend and be fun. A lot of the game is solo vs all besides factions so those who don't pound everyday would have a fun way to team up with friends. It wouldn't give you any special advantages. It would make it more interesting. After all chef did say he wanted companies to be more like real life even though they didn't turn out that way.

    If you want a friend to run a company for you you can, thus making them a VP. The game doesn't require a poingtless feture for you to do this.

    Well having a vpfeatur may reduce risk of scam. Someone may own a. Second or third company but have VP run it.if it is official less risk involved for players.
     
    What we have now is a work around.

    If anything should be changed we should be able to run more than one company at a time by OURSELF - why risk putting all our hardwork into somebody else's hands only for them to most likely scam us? Pretty lame.

    VP should have access to the bank too.  That would be A+

    I do think that you should be able to set up someone to automatically take over the company director position if they don't log in within x days.

    Instead of having to report it to staff after 30-60 days.
