VOICE MAIL can be a pain, ac-
cording to a recent survey of 150
executives from the nation's 1,000
largest companies. The executives
said 40 percent of the voice mail
systems they reach are annoying
or difficult to use.
"Voice mail should not be used
to replace personal communica-
tion," said Robert Half, founder
of Accountemps, which commis-
sioned an independent research
firm to do the survey.
"Wherever possible, callers
should ultimately be able to talk
to an actual person, especially if
it's a service-related business,"
Mr. Half said.
