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'
