    Well, I'm not for or against them per-say.  I'm just throwing it out
    there, and any input about them or any other company that people have
    direct experience with is certainly welcome on this message list.

    Ultimately the lesson that has to be learned (especially by the younger
    people on our forum) is that there has always been and will always be
    a fairly severe disconnect between people like us and the companies
    that actually pay enough for one to make a living. 

    Computer science is one of the few areas where degrees and accolades
    are virtually irrelevant when it comes to evaluating someone's actual
    ability.  Most HR departments simply cannot get a handle on it.
