[edit]

I'm torn on this one. Seems notable enough to me, since the company has been on the list of best companies to work for three different times ... but the current article reads like advertizing... Brian 15:24, 6 July 2006 (UTC)btball

Removed the advertizing and POV[edit]

It's still a pretty minimal article though, so I added a stub tag and request for expansion Brian 15:55, 6 July 2006 (UTC)btball
