Stop going to company meetings... they get all Rah rah rah pump everyone up then turn around and whack 10% or whatever every year. Just STOP going to company meetings for nothing.

About 1000 (feels like it)...

The biggest challenge all firms have now is how fast technologies are changing compared to a decade ago... So, if non-cloud technologies look to be declining and some recent acquisitions have more compelling IP, or the engineering talent can't make the shift to the new stuff, they may have to walk the plank.
