Their salary offering is much to be desired. They do not even offer standard industry rate no matter where they are geographically located. In 2010, they would offer about 10-20k less for a senior developer in the area that I was in.

They also employ the same tactics as Infosys, TCS, etal with regard to H1Bs.

My major whoops early in my career.

Brand new install of Slackware with Kernel 1.2.8 (circa late 1994) which was a statically linked build. Thought I was in /usr/local/lib (shell only had current level directory not the full path) but was really in /lib. Proceeded to rm -rf * to get rid of a test build (or so I thought). Well then I was wondering after about 10 sec the rm command was throwing errors. Seems that once the rm command hit libc.a any and all operations ceased.

After that I always had the root user have the full path in the shell. Luckily no data was lost that a quick reinstall did not fix. But people did start asking me why they were getting a bizarre error when trying to get their mail with their pop client.

You mean just like everyone said he was to become a shill for the liberal/conservative elites, how's that working out for them right now? He is actually rewriting parts of the political landscape .

Say all you want about how he is going to screw everybody for his own benefit, but it can really only be said when he actually does it. So far he is pretty much on a roll about all the things he said he was going to do which is rare for a politician this day and age and that is what is freaking people out right now. His actions are not that of a typical US politician.
