The Week Ending May 18

Topping this week's roundup of those having a rough week is Xerox CEO Jeff Jacobson, who appears to have lost the battle for control of the storied company and is now out of a job.

Also making the list this week are Apple, which faces a lawsuit and a consumer petition over MacBook Pro keyboard issues; Symantec executives, who face a discretionary compensation freeze as part of an internal investigation; a system outage that knocked Nest devices offline; and the Chili's restaurant chain, which suffered a data security breach that compromised an undisclosed number of customer credit and debit cards.

Not everyone in the IT industry was having a rough go of it this week. For a rundown of companies that made smart decisions, executed savvy strategic moves – or just had good luck – check out this week's 5 Companies That Came To Win roundup.
