Having been there and done that, let me assure you that there is NOTHING FUNNY about it.
It is all too true, and too sad. The burn rate of software engineers was VERY HIGH!
Engineering turnover was through the roof.
Perhaps the motto should be "Go ahead and burn them out, there's plenty more out there". Kind of a cuunch all you want, we'll make more attitude.
PRI - We take the "Human" out of "Human Resources".
Another Favorite Customer quote is,
"How about that (project mgr's name), He's a
f***in liar. He told me they'd ship late again this week like he's been telling me for over a month. F***in liar!"
"On the other hand weren't PRI's mis-managers masters at deception, lies, and covering their asses?"
Don't forget spending millions of dollars and millions of man hours trying to cover bad ideas instead of scraping the source of the headache.
Yet another motto: Throw it in the dumpster, we don't want any money for it, we can't waste what we have now.
Agreed!! Particularly the managers of tech support and field service...you hear what I have to say p squared!...walpole sucks and '59 was a very bad year, you
...stanley ...aka the eye
Basically, Brooks simply had no idea that PRI was as screwed up as it was when they bought it and now they're paying for it. How PRI was able to hide from Brooks what is obvious to anyone who ever worked there is a mystery. The incompetence is glaring.

Do you mean "Gristle"? If so, digest wouldn't be my first choice. Maybe expel or regurgitate would be a better choice.
Brooks had a hard enough time maintaining the products they already had. This "Bite" may just choke them.
