I believe the very best products of work arise when teamwork is encouraged, ethical behavior is nurtured from the highest levels, and back-stabbing kept to a minimum. For over 10 years, I saw too much corruption and too many people doing mediocre performance raking in $150K/yr. paychecks in Washington, DC.
