That sounds very much like IBM.  I was there for @ four years (from 2000 
to the end of 2003). When people ask me about it, I tell them "IBM is 
300,000 employees. That's like a large city. In a city you have a nice 
part of town (Watson) where people can more or less follow their dreams 
and make all kinds of neat/crazy stuff. Then there is the slums (IBM GS) 
where folks are treated like crap and act like animals." 

Man, they destroyed the materials.... daaaamn. That's some hatin'
