It is good to hear about such companies and spread the word around, same as in contractors circles we tell each other of bad clients and agents. But if this story intends to do that, it's going about it the wrong way. To spread the word, one must state the facts and let the reader make their own conclusions, not mix it in with one's own opinions and moments of glory.
Is this story trying to say Network Commerce fired Kendrick the wrong way? Then what's this about "My first boss quit due to health problems, because he was way too stressed out--he couldn't deal. [Kendrick had three different bosses in six months.]" This has nothing to do with the firing style, it just make the story sound like an embittered ex-employee's rantings more than someone who's trying to warn off others. And if a manager quits suddenly, it is more than likely that there would be an interim manager while a new one is being found, so in such a case three bosses in six months is quite ordinary.
And what's all this about "And I said out loud in front of everybody, 'Oh, are you finally going to tell me I'm fired, or what?'" More embittered ex-employee stuff that doesn't help the story or the ex-employee. At this point Kendrick looks like she lacks common decency just as much as her former employer. When you're fired, it's best to stay away (except perhaps to sneak in and get your personal belongings ^_^), going back and making a scene doesn't help anyone.
If you want to warn others of a bad employer or client, just state the facts, don't pollute it with your stories about how crappy the whole place was to begin with. That'll make you look like you're crying "mommy".
