According to the Inspector General’s January Report of Inspection, Embassy Luxembourg:
The Ambassador’s confrontational management style, chronic gaps in senior and other staffing caused by curtailments, and the absence of a sense of direction have brought major elements of Embassy Luxembourg to a state of dysfunction. These curtailments entail considerable costs to the U.S. Government. Morale among Americans and local staff is very low, and stress levels are high. Most employees describe the Ambassador as aggressive, bullying, hostile, and intimidating, which has resulted in an extremely difficult, unhappy, and uncertain work environment.
Stroum was apparently such a bad boss that a number of employees even went so far as to ask for transfers from Luxembourg to Afghanistan and Iraq.
