Phil is pretty much correct, altho we wont do layoffs..we are not
replacing any body that leaves or does not make it on the performance
issues...

Personally I still think the company is the one of the better places to be
if you love
networking and tech, but to each his own....

Phil is also right about the pay, the companies that you really like to be
in don't pay the highest
salary. The supply and demand issue always works for them, since there is no
shortage of people
that want to work for those type of companies...
