“(…) there were rather big differences between how these two companies operated. The questions then is: How do you account for these differences? Well, the obvious simple answer is one is an American yankee company and one is an old Swiss-German company.

Their backgrounds are different, their mentalities are different, so on top of the national differences, I began to see these occupational differences in the work itself.
