A taste of the real world, early on can't do anyone any harm, its about
the  whole company, one person does something like this and it looks
bad, very bad on everyone.

Integrity is very important, just look at the damage that has been done
to Toyota.

Once it's done getting back your old reputation may never happen or is
very very difficult.

I think if we agreed with each other all the time it would be ratehr
boring.  The important thing sometimes is to simply agree to disagree.

But at least everyone has a chance to put their point across.

Its also nice that a group of people from all different backgrounds can
really communicate on a different level,  even different ages, given i
am a lot older than most people here,  but my views are put across equally.
