Learning Ally (formerly Recording for the Blind & Dyslexic) may be having financial problems due, in part, to the economy, but there is some serious mismanagement going on here. A glance at their 990 (available through GUIDESTAR) shows numerous six-figure salaries, executive bonuses of as much as $50,000, executive severance payouts of over $300,000, a $130,000 consulting contract with the CEO's wife's company, and more. The shuttered studios are, I'm afraid, the beginning of the end.
