    Interesting discussion on how employer and customer branding are aligned. When employees are unhappy it will inevitably create a negative customer experience.

    Was it delta?

    Millenials are definitely causing problems with startups. I saw some data the other day that said the average tenure at Google is a little more than a year. Crazy

    Keep up the good work!
