Large acquisitions rarely work…unless you’re Warren Buffett. He keeps acquired properties separated and independent through the Berkshire Hathaway empire, and he never buys distressed properties in the first place: “A great company at a fair price, rather than a fair company at a great price.”
Most of tech recruiting is currently not built to look for great talent. I’m not interested in ping-pong, beer, or whatever other gimmick used to attract new grads. The fact that I don’t like those things shouldn’t mean I’m not a “culture fit”. I don’t want to work in tech to fool around, I want to create amazing things and learn from other smart people. That is the culture fit you should be looking for.
