EPIC2 fail

I've been listening to their company values for years and it is nothing more than marketing BS. Do not trust any executive. I'm looking forward to VCPPs reaction when they discover they are about to get screwed. I miss the days when engineering was... —  read more 

Media coverage

I have to admit I'm a bit surprised to see some media coverage of these layoffs, both on national and local level. There have been so many layoffs in every single industry over the past several months that I did not expect to see something like this... —  read more

Very toxic environment.

App Modernization

App Modernization is extremely tone deaf and rude for anyone who did not come from the new acquisitions and end up in the new BU. Do you think that the people who built the revenue streams are happy with the implication that their software is... —  read more
