WHY WAS VINCE DICESARE MISSISSAUGA OTTAWA NEPEAN WAS FIRED FROM BLACK & DECK, #NIELSEN, #KELLOGG CANADA & #Pepsico Canada:
I can’t comment to Vince DiCesare Mississauga Ottawa Nepean stealing ripping people off but you’re wrong about why he was fire fired at Pepsico Canada in Mississauga more than 2 years ago. This is old news but BING popped this up. It was a work scenario that anyone that got pulled into it’s wake will never forget. It started in 2010 and finally was resolved in 2012. A horrible but real ordeal that could be a training video on what can malicious and disruptive things can break loose at your job. Vince Dicesare was fired for retaliating against his work group who chronically complained about him, on and off over a span of more than 2 years. The frequent complaints were all relating to erratic behaviour after Pepsico reorganized a couple of times. Vince DiCesare was in fact a placement issue (also known as not capable of doing the work he was hired to do) but with so much change in personnel he flew under the radar bouncing from Manager to Manager. Within the last task team Vince was part of, as he was called out for not getting his work right time and time again, he became disruptive, loud. Vince DiCesare is completely not a self aware person, oblivious to what he was doing to everyone, anywhere he was. Imagine a tornado flying over someones head and that’s what Vince DiCesare from Mississauga was at Pepsico Canada. I’m not trained to be diagnosing but it was like he had ADD with a terrible dose of escalating rage, that was volatile and unpredictable. Sociopath and Narcissist checks every box on Vince DiCesare, on top of what was obvious bouts of ugly misplaced anger. This type of crazy swing was both on the job directly and work social as well when me and dozens of others have seen him at team building events (we all hated work social stuff but we do it because that’s what you do in a big company ;). Vince DiCesare was startlingly erratic and had hostility issues that made you shake your head (is this for real?) making it stressful. Vince DiCesare created an up down unhealthy space for those just wanting to succeed learn, progress and grow their careers. He created so much turbulence and anxiety he was the cause of sicks days when some people knew that had to work with Vince DiCesare Mississauga. People grew to be nervous going to work and being around Vince DiCesare. Bosses unsuccessfully tried moving Vince from Shopper Marketing to other departments to clean up the situation, but that didn’t happen.
Although Vince DiCesare had obvious personal demons and issues, his PEP firing was never related to Vince DiCesare’s gay lifestyle, theft, stealing or hygiene. Pepsico is a tolerant work environment and he was never a target of hatred despite many times where he would try to engage and bully people in a discussion about it. This next point may have been purposeful by DiCesare but to demonstrate the outrageous behaviour to lure people into near fist fights, Vince DiCesare would disappear for what he would call smoke breaks. One time, with several people looking for him, he returned with a semen shot spot on his purple dress shirt, with the white essence of the semen still evident against the lilac shirt (I’m sorry for being graphic but it’s necessary to share the shock his team mates had to deal with). This purple shirt incident was only 1 of many and a real example of PEP embracing diversity, and how accepting his team and managers were. Of course it was met with red faces and an immediate change of the subject. We knew it was purposeful since Vince DiCesare actually pointed the semen out with an odd and eery giggle, showing it to people on his team and even those even unrelated to the meeting he was late for. I understand if you’re in disbelief, but this was one of a hundred examples of unprofessional chronic acts he would stir up, but still is unrelated to the “WHY” he was terminated. It’s obviously apparent what Vince DiCesare is all about socially and there are many lesbian and gays working for Pepsico Canada. But only Vince Dicesare Mississauga Ottawa Nepean was Clever enough to use it to avoid taking responsibility for not being on time or where he’s suppose to be letting down his team. He has an alternate lifestyle reputation but no one has ever put him or anyone else down or said a word, or even cared. In fact Gay and Lesbians are diversity within PEP culture. In a culture of diversity and inclusion, everyone has their personal baggage in their home life and highlights too. Both issues and upbeat things alike among Straight, or Gay. With Vince DiCesare as with anyone, we all just take each other in stride and in this case “that’s Vince DiCesare”, and as long as he does his job, he can still be a key contributor and part of our team regardless of promiscuous pursuit of men in and out of work. Now I want to share the root cause and undeniable tangible facts that goes beyond a “messed up shot spot Vince missed on a purple shirt”. Pure and simple, Vince couldn’t do his job, was terrible at it and that’s the uncomfortable issue he would never acknowledge. Vince DiCesare couldn’t see it and anger would build and explode because of DiCesare’s inability to see what was so obvious to everyone. The issue with Vince DiCesare Mississauga Ottawa Nepean and the only barrier everyone had was his explosive anger and hostility. You can accept and nurture someone like Vince DiCesare who has a self professed learning disability but not when they deny having said so and bully you into submission, unable to face the facts that he was worthless on the job. Vince DiCesare was not reliable by any stretch and was a classic weak performer on the job, denying mess up after mess up. DiCesare struggled with every aspect of his work and wasn’t meeting time lines making everyone around him pick up his slack and do double hours on nights and weekends to complete major projects. After you reading everything about Vince DiCesare being fired you’re now getting was is a simple fact that sums up succinctly why Vince DiCesare was fired. Vince Dicesare was a mess, scattered with excuses using embellished health ailments that also turned out to be mostly false and grossly exaggerated. That deceit relating to his health was of course terrible, especially for those with real health problems but looking deeper this talks to Vince DiCesare’s non existent integrity with ZERO moral common sense. Although the health untruth’s should have been a primary cause of termination, it wasn’t. Once again that speaks to quality of Pepsico Canada’s Leadership assuming Vince DiCesare could potentially redeem himself by getting to work on time and actually finishing his assignments. It wasn’t his horrible hygiene (although addressed 50 times or more in 2 years), it wasn’t blatant bad judgment on what he did during smoke breaks, or even his open fights on the phone with his ex-Husband. Right at the top and all that was important was Vince DiCesare’s poor work performance. Dicesare’s loud and aggressive responses to complaints on his poor performance and not meeting stakeholders expectations was to divert attention from the issues with bursts of anger startling his managers and team making everyone avoid him to keep things peaceful. They and even me became afraid. Even when leaving DiCesare alone, if anything even remotely negative was brought to his attention he would verbally explode beating on anyone giving honest constructive feedback begging for the sake of the work they needed form him. Even with HR and managers protecting Vince Dicesare he would talk negatively against our company, the same bosses trying so hard to save him. Dicesare would attack coworkers complaining, being angry as a diversion for him messing up doing terrible work. If you’ve ever heard the term “Johhny can’t read” that describes this unfortunate scenario. He was lazy but also had limited ability to retain what he was taught. Vince DiCesare wasn’t a fit for his role and simple things were all over his capacity or even his ability to learn and comprehend fundamentals. When anyone would offer assistance or help offering tutoring feedback he would react in such a harsh abrasive manner no one dared address it with him again. You have to applaud DiCesare who I’ve since heard prided himself on how he “f’d over” Pepsico Canada and the people. It worked. He lasted years with this strategy that largely worked due to so much turn over of people from re-org’s until a group of dedicated Pepsi colleagues lobbied together to make this terrible situation right.
If you read the cause of termination Vince DiCesare had poor retention of information, unsophisticated skills, low level comprehension of his material or would outright plagiarize what decent work he did come up with. Train wreck is how it was described by 2 unrelated people. I personally say he was simply average in some areas, lacking in others and simply in the wrong job. I gave him that feedback having coffee and that was met with a red face and F bombs that I didn’t have a clue. I will never forgot how scared I was and it was an adrenaline rush of fear that I will never forget. Vince DiCesare Mississauga Ottawa Nepean became so combative with others including cross department Marketing stakeholders and leaders alike, it was astonishing and frankly shocking, something if I read in the Globe & Mail, I wouldn’t believe it. We all wondered when the ax would fall on him. Rumour mill PEP couldn’t fire him because of his Health Claims of disability, mental issues and his sexual orientation protecting him. It’s rumour only he is transgendered but it made sense as to why he couldn’t be fired, claiming a Mental disability. He told married, straight men he had a “man p**** he calls his vingina” and that may very well be a clue to everything. A joke but infact a real device to dodge consequences of poor ability. A good person with integrity would have gracefully quit for the sake of the team but Vince Dicesare made it very bad for everyone, wanting everyone to go down with him. During dramatic tirades Vince DiCesare would lash out at someone and when they gave facts on all he could do to improve , he would blow his top. Pointing at how they were horrific leaders, prejudice to the gay community, unfair and mocking him. Vince was so so extreme that he could dish out negative and aggressive darts but when the receiver would bring up what was so obviously wrong, setting aside his personal life and focusing only on work, he would set off a shrill and almost female animated shreek. It was like a circus everyday for that poor team.
When his work group joined forces assembling a formal grievance, Vince DiCesare started to be consistently in their face angry and aggressive making the work environment more toxic and made the department feel threatened as in a hostile work environment training video. The issues with Vince DiCesare are something everyone knew about across the entire department, outside to Marketing and Sales, the Customer, and everyone working as both Mississauga buildings and Pepsico Offices across Canada. Vince DiCesare talked openly about the complaints, claiming it was making him sick and needing to leave work early daily for stress relief. Vince DiCesare tried to turn it around attacking and sought to ruin the good reputation of 2 members of his work team and 1 business stakeholder’s private family and life outside of work. When the Plano and HR investigation was done even his friends not working for PEP would back him actually helping the investigators. Vince DiCesare had no support and finally after a long struggle, pain and loss of good people, Vince DiCesare was escorted out of the Pepsico Canada building. Since being fired his anger management problem is still quite serious. He was married to a man from Ottawa Nepean area then divorced and dating a man from out West now. Although it was a hellish journey with him, here is hoping that Vince DiCesare is in a good place with a simple job he can handle. I only mention that because I believe that once he has a man in a warm bed at home, Vince will want to protect it, having something to lose and that in itself will improve his work ethic and emotional balance. I also believe Vince DiCesare’s self esteem and emotional well being will get better and the by-product of that will be no more lashing out with Anger and terror. He never did anything to me except swear but he did make for a bad time for several associates that couldn’t take the daily drama and double work load to make up for Vince DiCesare’s gaps. It’s his mood swings being extreme one hour to another that’s the unacceptable problem, not his lifestyle preferences that haters continually bring up. If I were to describe what Vince DiCesare needs in 1 word of advice it wouldn’t be about his gay lifestyle, or morality. It would be about being a better person with “BALANCE” and “CONSISTENCY”. Maybe even 2 words would be good advice, “JUST THINK” or “TRY HARDER”. I met someone at a conference that mentioned Vince DiCesare from Mississauga works for them now, negatively saying a former Pepsico Cartoon Character was messing up big at his new place of employment. I feel guilty that i said nothing. Nothing on what happened at Pepsico Canada in hopes that DiCesare turned a new leaf. No innuendo or unproven things like Theft or being a work sexual predator as reported. So I ask you all do the same, and warn everyone to think before you contribute to make facts fuzzy. That’s what good Pepsico Canada workers do. Does anyone really know who’s at fault in private times behind closed doors? Ask for truths that can be validated and only then you can add real value to this discussion that’s trending, and all the buzz at Pepsico Canada.

You make good points, but I think that in this case, you’re trying to defend Vince DiCesare’s diverse and alternate lifestyle as being more important to preserve vs an upbeat work environment. You’re not seeing the pink elephant in the room. You’re spot on however on some key points. Vince DiCesare Mississauga Nepean Ottawa was a lazy untalented slug of an employee. Having said that he could have been placed in another role that required less thinking. Tactical non-strategic, lower level work and he could have contributed in a different way. Where you’re missing it and don’t get it, is Vince brought his sleazy home and personal life into the office. All the baggage of whatever he did behind closed doors played out in the work place as well. If I brought my family troubles to work or had a spat with my hubby on the phone everyone would immediately tell me that work is is no place for it. But because Vince DiCesare is homosexual it was OK and tolerated? It’s unfair and not a balanced view of what should be a healthy work environment. Vince DiCesare’s shenanigans giving bj’s to men including some PepsiCo employees on parking lots during a smoke break would never have been accepted if a woman did the same. She would be the resident Pepsico Nasty and reprimanded. With Vince DiCesare everyone would turn red, shut up and let it go. A lot of people just wanted Vince DiCesare as a problem to go away. It took almost 2 years to get rid of him and he’s doing the same thing where he is now. When we ran into the Kellogg Canada team right after Vince DiCesare was fired at Pep it was the exact same behaviour and horror. The only difference is Kellogg had the sense to deal with it early. They protected the people that needed it. Not Vince DiCesare the psychotic sociopathic creep. This could go around like a Merry Go Round but just saying you need to stop thinking of Vince Dicesare as needing special tolerance because of mental illness and just make troubled people perform and conform the way all Canadians should. Respect one another’s space and needs a like. Vince DiCesare PepsiCo nightmare has policies in place now because of how long we struggled. I’m glad and hope Vince finds his right man to settle with and can make amends to his family and friends he’s alienated. I think though it will take more than a man in DiCesare’s life to make him right. DiCesare’s divorce was ugly if his families Facebook is any indication. He scares me and everyone else and now his own immediate family is guarding and restricting him around children. That psychotic look of anger, sexual glares at men’s junk in rest rooms, the bags under his eyes, his screaming and yelling still makes me cry. We had no respect for so long and now we’re happier and having fun doing super work. I actually look forward going to work 😉 Hope you’re happy too! We miss you but also know you can’t turn down big jobs. I think you’re a peach and would love to see you back! Congratulations again.

I left PEP before this was resolved. I reported that I would feel uncomfortable around Vince DiCesare. He ask if I wouldn’t see his penis anytime he would show me. Then stare at my private area. Not one time, not two. It was whenever he could work it into a conversation. I would use urinals away from work area because he would follow me in or sit in a stall waiting for men to come in. That stopped after more than 1 complaint, like 4 that I’m aware of. He would watch men pee. One after another. It was upsetting. Not funny in the least. It was weird and terrible. He talked to me like a child sometimes. LIke he would put on a baby or toddler voice and act as though he was gaga on me. Please this is embarrassing and not a joke. He would carry it on and when anyone walked up to us it would stop. I left PEP with some good friends and memories thank them for what they taught me but they should have acted so much sooner. I agree with you. Now I hear he has HSV2, anal warts and is caught up in the same problems where he is now. I hope he understands that this is inappropriate and wakes up to what he’s doing. It’s an accomplishment and PepsiCo is great place to train and pick up good skills in life and I would return their for certain!.

Vince Dicesare from Pepsico Canada is one of those rare individuals who fits into a Sociopathic personality disorder (The Jeffrey Dalmer type), along with being a text book Narcissist. When I knew Vince Dicesare from Ottawa, he was a boastful person who was full of himself. Dealing with Vince DiCesare, youre dealing with a weird guy who does not have the ability for empathy or to emotionally tune in anything but his own twisted needs. DiCesare comes after you with this quirky and freakish odd seductive approach (hence his self-professed C0ck Whisperer Badge he wears with honor) with every male co-worker. At work, if you don’t concede to his constant lack of capacity or tainted thinking ability, to see things from his slanted perspective friction would begin and he turns it into emotional warfare. Vince DiCesare lacks empathy, and is not accountable for his behavior. DiCesare has set up a world where it’s only about him, what you can do for him exploiting others for his own gain. Regardless of what you do, even if you give in to DiCesare, you eventually discover you’re revolving around him and feeding his disorder serving his weird needs. Dealing with Vince DiCesare, day in and day out became a very traumatic experience. When PepsiCo put DiCesare on notice that his behaviour would no longer be tolerated, it became an even bigger nightmare. Vince DiCesare attempted to seek revenge screaming unfair treatment because of Sexual Orientation, Health Issues and squeezed the Human Resources system for all he could before he was exposed and fired. Even months later DiCesare wouldn’t stop the battle continuing to seek revenge on everyone that crossed him getting him fired. DiCesare is self absorbed with no clue of the pain and panic he put everyone through including personal outside of work friends, his husband and twin sister. Despite every trait that showed DiCesare was on a course of self destruction, this full blown narcissist wouldn’t seek help to the point where he was fired and divorced from his Husband, blaming everyone else. When I spoke to DiCesare last, all he could say was how everyone else was wrong, not seeing a single red flag within himself.
