    Sure, absolutely. Both places gave me an opportunity to work closely with a lot of incredibly smart and talented people all working at a very high level. I've learned more from the people I've worked with over the years than any class or book or conference.

    As far as hiring, I think there are people who can be really successful in large organizations that don't do as well in other environments, so I don't think I'd be biased specifically towards that. There's a certain sense of rubber-stamp validation that if somebody made it through the gatekeepers at Fancy Company X, they must be good, but that doesn't always mean they will be a good fit for something else.

    (At 6'5" I'm easy to spot, but I'm very wily.)
