We went from around 500 or so employees in (mostly) three locations to 
tens of thousands all over the country. People who make decisions know 
nothing about my office or how we do business. The bulk of the company 
is in manufacturing, and don't understand doing business on the 
Internet. My company before purchase had more Internet bandwidth than 
the whole huge company does now. They tried to tell us that we had to 
use their Internet connection. That type of reasoning applies to many 
decisions still.

In addition, it is obvious to all that each of us in only one in tens of 
thousands. Corporate does not appear to give a rat's ass about any of us...
