During Chiang era, a director of the board of China Steel resigned his job three years prior to the regulated age of retirement: 70 years old. The reason? You will not believe it nowadays in Taiwan.
Because according to the by-law of then China Steel, all its higher positions must be taken by the personnel from inside the company, step by step, from the lower levels to the top of senior vice president, president, and eventuallly to director, and all positions had an age limitation. When that director decided to retire earlier, the incumbent president was pushing 65, the age ceiling for being on the job. So if he did not retire earier, then the president would not have the chance to be promoted to director, and such a traditional system would have ended.
By contrast, according to reports the woman senior vice president of China Airlines, who is one of the key persons in recent scandal of cigarettes smuggling by Taiwan Airforce One, received sky-rocketing promotion within the company because once that Wonky Cai greeted her in an occasion by cordially addressing her nickname in public. After that, she got a promotion in no time dierctly from a fifth level managerial position to senior VP, the 2nd in the company, even faster than a "helicopter". For crying out loud, her promotion was a sheer "Taiwanese miracle", by any stretch of the imagination.
Kindly make a comparison between the two by yourself.
